A Social-Musical Initiative

Koolulam is a social-musical initiative aimed at strengthening the fabric of society.

The project centers around mass singing events in which large groups of non-professionals come together to form a single collaborative musical creation. Koolulam brings together people from all walks of life to do one thing: stop everything for a few hours and just sing – together.

At Koolulam, the audience is the artist!

Every participant enters as a unique individual and comes out, while still unique, as a part of a larger whole. After all, we are all one big human ensemble.

For every Koolulam event, we choose a different well-known song to be performed. Our team of musicians works hard toward each event, putting together a fresh and innovative arrangement of the chosen song. We write new instrumental arrangements as well as an original three-part vocal arrangement.

Every Koolulam event is unique in its chosen song, message, style, venue, number of participants, and, of course, the participants themselves – you!

So when are YOU coming to your first Koolulam?
Subscribe to our newsletter to hear about our events.

Koolulam is first and foremost a social initiative – meant to make the world a little bit better. For this reason, we find it only natural to bring Koolulam to the heart of the next generation – our children.

Koolulam is in the process if developing a unique and rich educational program – to be implemented in schools.

In 2018 alone, Koolulam has been approached by more than 500 different educational institutions, all requesting to hold Koolulam events. It is evidently clear to educators, as well as to us, that Koolulam events hold tremendous educational value.

For this reason, we have set in motion the establishment of a new and central project in Koolulam – KoolSchool. KoolSchool will allow children and teens to experience the empowering process of a Koolulam event – not only in participation but also in production.

Koolulam will arrive at schools to take students through an immersive process – teaching them how to produce their very own Koolulam event from A to Z. We are HIGHLY excited about this.

Want to have KoolSchool at your own school?! Get in touch!
