Live on Excursions: Sonos

 

The Los Angeles based a capella group known as Sonos stops by WYSO to chat with Niki Dakota and perform live on Excursions.

Sonos consists of 6 well trained vocalists who met while attending school in Southern California (each of them studying Music). Sonos combines a classical background with contemporary vocal stylings including beat-boxing and electronic modification to create an exciting modern sound that has its roots in the fundamentals of vocal choir.

Chatting with Niki Dakota, Sonos discusses the challenges of being an a capella group, their unique arrangements of popular songs, and why they enjoy singing in stairwells. The group also performs several live selections during this installment of Excursions.
