Vocolot - A Concert to Benefit the Women's Earth Alliance
Vocolot brings a joyous fusion of folk, jazz and cantorial vocal traditions into the contemporary a cappella world. Their music, rooted in universal heart, social conscience and Jewish soul, communicates a powerful vision of world peace and reconciliation. Vocolot sings in English, Hebrew, Ladino, Yiddish, and Arabic, blending lush harmonies, soaring melodies and global percussion in original works and new renderings of ancient songs and texts.
Vocolot has been touring nationally since 1988. The Bay Area-based group made their international debut in London and Nottingham England in December 2000. In 2008 Vocolot appeared in the International Jewish Music Festival in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, making it all the way to the Finals of this world-class competition. In 2007 the group took Second Place in the Bay Area Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival. Vocolots 2003 CD Heartbeat and their 1998 CD Behold were both honored with awards from the Contemporary A Cappella Society. Vocolot has appeared on Michael Krasnys radio show Forum and performed live this past January on KALWs Folk Music & Beyond.
"This is my kind of sisterhoodlike Sweet Honey in the Rock, only Jewish."Erik Goldman, Rhythm Music magazine
Vocolot's performance at the International Jewish Music Festival in Amsterdam was spectacular. I got goosebumps!Frank London of the Klezmatics
Many of you, I'm sure, have heard [Vocolots] music and seen them perform. But for those of you who have not, let me say that theirs was not just a technically well-executed performance. It was an EXPERIENCE.Cantor Anna Ott, Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple, New Brunswick, NJ
