They really sing!
  ManSound, an a cappella sextet from Kyiv, Ukraine, started its activity in 1994 as an idea of
  composer and arranger Vladimir Mikhnovetsky. The group consists of experienced professionals
  and it is a permanent participant of international jazz festivals and concerts.
  From the very first performances of ManSound at the concerts in Ukraine the interest towards
  the group has been increasing, as well as their popularity. The group got a hearty welcome at
  the jazz festivals and concerts throughout Ukraine. Since 1997 ManSound has been a sought-
  after guest at different jazz festivals, like "Jazz Voices" (Moscow, Russia) and have been
  rewarded with well-deserved popularity.
  In 1996 ManSound traveled to the United States for six weeks performing with great success in
  universities and evangelical churches. They gave several dozens concerts in four U.S. states.
  In December of 1998 ManSound held a series of Christmas concerts in Holland and Switzerland.  
  In April 1999 ManSound performed with great success at the 7th International Jazz Festival "Jazz
  en Artois" (France).
  In February of 2000, ManSound performed at one of the biggest jazz events in the USA, the
  Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, following the invitation of Lionel Hampton himself. They also
  performed in 2002 and 2003 delighting the participants of their daily workshops and crowds of
  5000 at the evening performances. After their first appearance, Dr. Linn Skinner, director of the
  Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, said that ManSound was the hit of the jazz event.
  During the summer of 2001 ManSound performed in Branson, Missouri, as part of the Zhivago
  Show. They were nominated for Best Vocal Group by Branson's All-American Entertainment
 "This performance is one of the best kept secrets in Branson. On a scale from one to ten, I would 
  rate this at twelve. This has to be one of the freshest talents to perform in the Ozarks in many
  years. Their ability and  talent speak for itself and  take a back seat to no one." 
  Lobodzinski (Crown Point, Indiana).
  In July of 2002, ManSound participated in the International A Capella Competition for Jazz and
  Pop Ensembles "Vokal.Total" in Graz, Austria. ManSound won the first place in the Jazz Category

  coveted "Ward Swingle Award". Ward Swingle, founder of the Swingle Singers, the first A
  Capella group, and the jury chairman, said of ManSound: "The variety of their repertoire is very
   impressive. I think that the group has a fine future."
  The sextet's repertoire consists of Slavic folk songs, Gospel, and the jazz standards which they
   perform with original arrangements.
   For the last ten years ManSound has toured and performed in Austria, Germany, France, Italy,
