“Audiafauna, a six-piece band that mixes traditional folk/rock instrumentation with cello, violin and upright bass. The band has been together about a year, and has collected a solid following in town for its energy and smart mix of genres, flavoring their folk approach with electronica beats and strings. But, instead of chasing after an A&R exec for some out-of-town record label in hopes of recording their new album, the members of Audiafauna are taking a different approach. The group is using a web site called kickstarter.com that serves as a platform for similar fundraising efforts for musicians, theater groups, filmmakers and other artists.

“Less than a year old, the band is seducing audiences with a magnetic appeal that sinuously shifts between songs that can be playful or deeply moving; violin, cello, dobro and standup bass erupt against synth atmospherics, and beat box interjections play the foil to cherubic croons. This week, the sextet brings it all to the Kuumbwa Jazz stage on Friday, April 30. Now, with a dynamic backing band, she’s creating a stir with her stage presence and sound that recently had onlookers defying weather and walls to get a glimpse. “We had people standing outside in the rain with their ears up to the glass,” Koval remembers in awe of the band’s sold out Crepe Place show in February. “The atmosphere was so connected, it was inspiring, and we really tried to involve the audience.” ... the ensemble’s original repertoire, energetic and emotive, serves up something for every ear. ”
