World’s first underwater band makes debut at Rotterdam festival


Music has been submerged to a new level: An entire show is being performed underwater at the Operadagen festival in Rotterdam. The band ‘Between Music’ used specially designed instruments and a vocal technique created to allow underwater singing.

The five members of Danish Band ‘Between Music’ performed their show titled ‘AquaSonic’ in specially designed tanks onstage, each containing purpose built instruments and microphones for creating underwater music.

Singer Laila Skovmand became obsessed with the idea after she developed a technique, in which she sings while not letting air bubbles leave her mouth.
