Ethereal and gritty four-part vocal harmony and delicious vaudevillian combo of cello, accordion and banjo. Original improvisation-built songs steeped in Appalachia and Eastern Europe. Voted #1 a cappella band in the U.S. in 2007, VOCO is the energy of street singing and the elegance of a string quartet. Touring 2009 with the latest live CD, "Circle, Square, Diamond & Flag", released in October, 2008.  Sweet, hard-driving Americana mixed with crooked eastern European dance and dissonance, with body-stompin’ percussive movement. Joyous, magnificent, hair-raising harmonies - music that mourns and dances at the same time. Called "a truly phenomenal act" by Folkworks Magazine, "fascinating and multi-lingual" by the LA Times. "Their body percussion sets are a sight to behold!". VOCO will be joined by master percussionist, Evan Fraser and Teslim, a potent duo performing Greek, Turkish and Sephardic music on violin, oud, saz, laouto, and viola.  with fiery improvisation and deep attention to the traditions.
