ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Culture Kin was envisioned and created in collaboration with
artists from eight San Francisco international sister cities from Côte
d’Ivoire, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Ireland, Brazil, and Japan.
RVSQ brings the world a little closer through a joyful interplay of
vocal chamber music, improvisation, and unique instrumentation
that can only be classified as genre-bursting music. RVSQ embraces
diverse influences from classical, jazz, rock, as well as traditional
roots music from West Africa, Brazil, and rural America. With past
performances on the Tonight Show, with Feist at Coachella, and
as cultural ambassadors with the State Department, RVSQ strides
forward on an adventurous path. This project received significant
support for commissioning and recording Culture Kin from the
Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation Special Award in the Arts.

On a mission to knit the world closer
together through cultural collaboration,
Real Vocal String Quartet freely mixes
styles and transcends genres. RVSQ began
with violinist Irene Sazer’s inspiration to
combine her musical passions: chamber
music, improvising, composing, and
singing, and continues to grow with fiddler
Sumaia Jackson, cellist David Tangney, and
bassist Sam Shuhan. Starting from the
eclectic, musically sophisticated base of the
San Francisco Bay Area, RVSQ has found an
International audience since releasing their
debut CD in 2010.
