Chordas Collective is a vocal-forward ensemble recognizable by its polystylistic fluidity and magnetic dynamism with performance possibilities ranging from avant drag sound baths to auto-tuned Gregorian jazz. Fully committed to authenticity as well as parody, Chordas regularly collaborates with cutting edge composers and technologists to tell vital stories and play musical games.
