Muom Overtone Singing Choir is the only vocal group that produces polyphonies with overtones. We compose, investigate and perform cross-cultural music of our own creation.

His music is inspired both by contemporary currents as well as ancient choral polyphonies and ancestral music from different cultures. That is why Muom’s music is unique and timeless, with ancestral roots and at the same time avant-garde.

SPECIAL COLLABORATIONS

“We had the honor of sharing the stage with our friend Luis Paniagua, with Néstor Kornblum, with Carlos Núñez  and his brother Xurxo, with Shirai, with Mark Pulido and his incredible flat bells. MuOM appears in a 360º virtual reality music video with the group U2, and in soundtracks such as the movie “Un Trabajo y Una Película“.

INTERNATIONAL PRESENCE

“In 2014, MuOM travels to the United Kingdom, where it performs with great success in the World Concert Series at St. Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace in the City of London, and at the  Llangollen Fringe Festival in Wales. In 2021 performed in two shows at the No Border Festival in Brest, France.”

ACOUSTIC SPACES

“We have usually sung in churches, which we have carefully selected for their acoustics, so that the sound experience is more natural and enveloping, and where the harmonics of the voice are amplified and intermingled. Even so, we have also sung in theaters and auditoriums with a suitable sound system, as in the Palau de la Música in Barcelona. ”
