Moira and her ensemble:
moira smiley & VOCO is a visionary blend of voices - redefining harmony singing with the power & physicality of folksong, avant-garde fearlessness of Béla Bartók and delicious, vaudevillian accompaniment of cello, banjo, accordion, uke and body percussion. Moira Smiley crafts riveting performances of striking, emotional music through lush vocal harmony, visceral rhythm and voices as many-colored instruments. Original improvisation-built songs steeped in roots of Appalachia and Eastern Europe.
