The New Sufi Choir is a 12-voice ensemble from Sonoma County that is the
musical successor to the original Sufi Choir, a fixture of the San
Francisco Bay Area music scene in the '70s and 80s. The New Sufi Choir's
repertoire is a wild mix of sacred and celebrational music, including
old favorites from the original Sufi Choir and current original
Wing & A Prayer is an a cappella quartet based in Santa Cruz. Its
members all sing with the Mount Madonna Choir, and each member brings
along many years of musical experience in many different fields. Khalila
Alldis has sung with many ensembles and her beautiful soprano voice can
be heard on all of the Mt. Madonna Choir recordings. Jen Crumbacher,
when not singing alto for a cappella groups, can be found plunkin' her
guitar, a'singin' bluegrass and folk. Mark Forry is our local expert on
Eastern European and Russian music, with experience on everything from
Klapa to Bulgarian to Dalmation music, and more! Mark also writes and
arranges for the group, and sings bass. Jonathan Arthur is a former
member of VocaMotion and sings all the time (tenor, mostly), as well as
writes and arranges. He is known for his vocal instruments, and he has
his own recording studio.
Wing and a Prayer's music is from the earliest known a cappella up to
today's music, with an emphasis on beautiful harmony.
Keep singing - the whole world needs it!
