". . . ear-boggling in its originality and harmony."
— San Jose Mercury News

"SoVoSó leaves listeners awestruck by its vocal agility and musical smarts."
— Oakland Tribune

"SoVoSó is tight, soulful, and a whole lotta fun."
— Bobby McFerrin

From the Soul to the Voice to the Song. The founding members of SoVoSó came together in Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra. SoVoSó is a highly imaginative a cappella ensemble that sings a compelling mix of jazz, R&B, gospel, world, pop, and improvisational music. The singers explore the extended capability of the human voice with such elements as groove-oriented bass lines, syncopated guitar- or horn-like riffs, and vocal percussions, all of which support exquisite harmonies. The ensemble is rooted in the art of circle singing, where a framework supporting improvised solos is created through interlocking patterns that are spontaneously composed. SoVoSó captivates audiences with their playfulness, humor, and unpredictability.
