I first heard Aluka when they opened for Clare Bowditch at the Gov. They were a last minute replacement and almost no one there really wanted to listen to them (two-thirds of them were the backing singers for Clare's New Slang). Anyway, despite trying to do a capella with a crowd of drunken louts who actually came here to see a different opening act, in avenue that is not a good one for such (the bar trade if nothing else is disruptive, even when no one is ordering).
So when they played the Grace Emily last year I went to see them again. Here, they rightfully silenced the pub.
Anyway, even if I wasn't a junkie for good a capella, especially from all-female harmony groups, I'd go see them (especially since my previous addictions of Arraimedeia and Jelelah are no more). In fact I'm going to see them again tomorrow.
Breathtakingly beautiful ethereal intimate a capella.
Hmmmmm (I was bouncing for hours after
ETA: Thanks molokov_au for the hint that people might like to know who I was actually talking about.
