Sonos Sings ... Near You!

Monday, April 12, 2010 - 09:25 AM

The rich harmonies and ultra-contemporary arrangements of Sonos bring a cappella singing to a level those guys in the striped vests and boater hats never could have dreamed of.

Don't know Sonos? You're in for a treat. The L.A.-based sextet visited Studio 360 last fall to talk with Kurt and perform live in the studio.

Now you can hear their fresh, thrilling sound in person. They're touring the east coast —including New York, Cambridge, and Portland, Maine— for the next week or so. Then they head out west and Midwest, so get to a gig near you. You can see their full tour schedule here.

Can't wait for the show? Here's Sonos's cover of Bjork's 'Joga,' recorded live in our studio:

Describing a capella as barbershop quartets and college doo-wop groups ignores the long and rich tradition of sacred a capella music. The term, in fact, literally means "chapel-style".
