Bela Karoli

Bela Karoli

 Denver, Colorado, USA

"'Furnished Rooms', is a stunning set of jazzy acoustic compositions with touches of subtle electronics. The album is filled with beautifully structured dynamics and captivating sonic twists." NPR, Second Stage


This unorthodox trio combines an upright bass, mechanical electronic percussion, two women singing, violin and accordion to produce music undefined by genre.

Bela Karoli swelled from a solo project to a trio when Julie Davis (bass, soft instruments, vocals) began playing with Brigid McAuliffe (accordion, vocals) and Carrie Beeder (violin and cello) in the summer of 2006. Bela Karoli’s music has been described as nakedly beautiful, gorgeously affected, stunning and emotionally resonant, but most listeners agree that it’s hard to classify the band’s compelling mix of modern electronica with old-world acoustic music.
