Real Vocal String Quartet is knock-out Bay Area string quartet, string band, woman's vocal quartet and jaw-dropping improvising world-music collective takes on Regina Spektor and other Jewish music.

True Life Trio weaves sumptuous vocal harmonies and sultry rhythms from Eastern Europe, the Americas & beyond. This innovative trio explores the creative possibilities of cross-fertilization of different traditions with unlikely timbres connecting Bulgaria to the Bayou. Featuring the powerful vocal talents of three dynamic performers whose musical collaboration was forged in Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble, the trio delves deep into a vast array of folk music that lends itself to three-part vocal harmony, massaging and expanding the boundaries of these traditional styles. The result is a sweet, sonic explosion that is here turned for the first time to original arrangements of Jewish music.
