The vocal performance ensemble YouYou Group always demonstrates the liberating power of the voice. The performers anoint and scourge your hearing with impressive vocal impact. Softly shimmering or loudly blaring: you will never forget the well-known vibrating cries or youyous. Youyou is a French translation of the zaghareet. It is an age-old cry of intense joy, especially heard at weddings or births.

Hamel is YouYou Group’s first full-length musical theater performance for the main hall. Expect a contemporary version of the legend about the flautist who rids a city of a plague of rats. When his reward is not forthcoming, a plague can no longer be avoided. In Arabic, ‘hamel’ means, among other things, ‘I want…’ and ‘neglect’. Hamel will be a special vocal journey that will resonate for a long time.
