New York's delicious improv chamber trio: Sasha Zamler-Carhart (voice), Charlie Rauh (electric guitar), Jesse Greenberg (glockenspiel). We compose music in real time on poetry. We have a special bond with medieval literature: the troubadours, Byzantine kontakia, Dante, and Christine de Pizan. We perform in medieval gothic churches, hipster Brooklyn galleries, Belgian underground clubs, fancy Manhattan concert halls, French house shows, and wherever people like beautiful music and poetry.
