The five women of Absolute believe in music with a message. Their tight vocal harmonies create an a cappella sound sometimes reminiscent of Sweet Honey in the Rock. From South African freedom songs to folk music, from doo-wop to choral arrangements, Absolute's performances take you from the familiar and silly to the poignant and soulful. Gigs at performance at issues-oriented events have included Calyx Publishing, Water For People, LunaFest, as well as shows for Amnesty International, OSU Brown Bag Lunch Series, and Da Vinci Dayus-Corvallis. For these five busy women, taking time out of the week to make music together is Absolute-ly what they want to do.
