Beat-boxing, a Bollywood showstopper and Johann Strauss's The Blue Danube waltz (sung in German) are all part of the dance rhythm-themed program when the 140-voice choir, International Voices Houston, presents ¡Baila, Baila! Toes will be tapping when they throw in a few Argentine tangos, Eastern European folk songs and even a few Irish reels. They're also doing "Nyon Nyon" by American composer Jake Runestad. "This is a wildly creative and rhythmic piece sung on wordless syllables that features vocal percussion and beat-boxing," says Mark Vogel, the choir's director. As for that Bollywood hit? They're also performing "Jai Ho!", the upbeat, catchy tune made even more famous in Slumdog Millionaire, presented here with a little help from two percussionists and a Bharatnatyam dancer. 8 p.m. April 28, 3 and 7 p.m. April 29. The MATCH, 3400 Main. For information, call 713-521-4533 or visit matchouston.org or voiceshouston.org/baila-baila. $15 to $25.
