"Its astonishing music!-  Alexander Varty, The Georgia Straight

An exciting collision of tradition with experimentation, one that will equally appeal to fans of folk, avant-garde improv and jazz." Jo Frost, Songlines Magazine

Line Up: Julia Ulehla - vocals; Aram Bajakian  Guitar; Peggy Lee  Cello; Skye Brooks  Drums; Colin Cowan - Bass

Vancouver-based group Dálava is an homage to traditional Moravian (Czech) folksong, sourcing melodies rooted in the past and transcribed over 100 years ago by the groups singer Julia Ulehlas great-grandfather. The ensemble brilliantly re-animates the songs in an extremely stirring, avant-garde, post-rock musical language. These are songs to disturb and to lull, of past and family, Mysterious, yes, but also filled with a curious beauty.  Chris Nickson, fRoots. In Dálavas hands, tradition fuses with experimentation to create music that appeals to fans of everything from folk to world, avant-garde improv, and jazz.

Singer Julia Ulehla careens, sails, and shimmers through the varied interpretations with penetrating strength  her singing is something heavenly and ethereal, sometimes gruff and earthy, as though she were channeling the spirit of a hardscrabble village woman whos known these songs her whole life.  Peter Margasak, The Chicago Reader

With a membership comprised of stellar Vancouver musicians, it is no wonder that Dálavas 2017 release The Book of Transfigurations garnered critical acclaim both here and on the international front. Every now and then an album appears that is so overwhelming and so intense that it is hard to put into any category. Such is the case with The Book of Saying that TBOT is a masterpiece is not an exaggeration.  Bas Springer, fRoots

In performance and on recording, the sheer beauty of the songs, the instrumental wizardry of the musicians, and Ulehlas incandescent vocals combine to delve into deep territory  conjuring ancestors, animating spirits, and crafting musical around gem-like folk melodies.
