ARRESTING A CAPPELLA
LISTEN TO THE SIRENS A CAPPELLA.
They met to sing through the cold, cold night on the streets of Toronto. “Have You Seen My Sister?”, a suite of four songs written by band member Aruna is a memorial to the missing and murdered women of Ontario. They sang outside Women’s College Hospital with 70 other singers as part of the official program of Independent Projects at Nuit Blanche Toronto 2018. Now they sing in clubs, at festivals and at gatherings. Original songs and arrangements. Harmonies like keen rejuvenating winds. The Sirens, are Alejandra Ballon, Aruna Antonella Handa, Caitlin Holland and Lindsay McDonald. They sing within the band Alluvial Plain, and when it’s just the singers, they are the SIRENS.
