Thrilling audiences by blending the improvisation of jazz, the cultural depth of world music, and the soulfulness of devotional kirtan, BOLO's infectious rhythm gets people moving.

 

BOLO is comprised of three musical innovators: Eliyahu Sills, made his start playing upright bass in NYC's jazz & hip-hop scenes. After immersing himself in the Ney and Bansuri, the flutes of India and the Middle East, he became the renowned band-leader of Eliyahu & The Qadim Ensemble whose CD reached #7 on Billboard’s World Music Charts. Surya Prakasha is a sought after drummer in the Bay Area jazz and world music scenes, and has worked with renowned artists such as Lavay Smith. A devotee of the yogic path and a student of Jai Uttal, Surya is a soulful kirtan leader on vocals and harmonium. Evan Fraser is a member of many highly acclaimed world music and electronica projects, such as Stellamara, Hamsa Lila, and Dirtwire, whose recent album hit #1 on iTunes world music charts. He plays West African kamale ngoni (harp), kalimba, percussion and jaw harps from across the globe.

 

Featuring African sourced grooves with sacred folk songs from around the world, BOLO speaks to the heart in a musical language that unites us all.
