Tune into the campus rhythms with a sampling of student musical groups, as described by group members:

Medieval. "All the repertoire is selected and researched by group members," says Kiri Miller, '00. "Our first major concert of the year is entitled The Virgin, the Lady, and the Whore: Medieval Musical Commentary on Women."

The Love Bomb
American folk-rock. "We sing and play because it bleeds out of our pores," says Caleb Maskell, '00. "It's more a matter of heartbeat necessity than cultural exchange. We sing about life, love, faith, fear, Jesus, and the asphalt prairie."

Golosa
Russian folk and liturgical music. "Most people's idea of Russian folk music, if they have one, is what's playing in the background when they play Tetris," quips Noel Taylor, AM'99. "But this is not what we do. Our growth is due to the strength and unique beauty of this music."

Loose Roots
Traditional Korean percussion. "We stress the history and culture that gave birth to the drums we play," says Jay Monteverde, '00. "Our music carries within it the indomitable spirit of people who have always been at the bottom but persistently find a way to push on to the next day."

Unaccompanied Women
A cappella music. "We sing soul, jazz, folk, and rock--and enjoy the spirit of sisterhood and music-making in the process," says Magazine intern Emily Chang, '00.
