Dec.5/6/7/8: The Nightingale Trio (N. Bala JD'12, R. Laviola BA'12, S. Larsson BA'12)in the Bay Area

The Nightingale Trio is a women’s vocal arts group inspired by traditional folk songs and vocal techniques from the Balkans and Eastern Europe. Performances in SF (12/5), Berkeley (12/6), Mountain View (12/7), and San Jose.


Nila Bala, Rachel LaViola, and Sarah Larsson met each other at Yale, singing with the Yale Women's Slavic Chorus.  One year after finishing their degrees in law, film, and anthropology, the three couldn't help but reunite.  Today, the Nightingales sound fuller than a trio, yet still maintain the intimate, tight harmonies of a family band. Though dedicated to recreating the rhythmic, complex, and stunning folk songs that have spanned centuries of Slavic artistic culture, the Nightingale Trio also strives to expand the boundaries of the traditional folk by bringing their own unique forms of expression and creativity to the dynamic and ever-evolving art form.

The Nightingale Trio is village harmonies, birdsong lullabies, and moonlit round dances. 

It is black cherries and plum brandy.
