People often ask: What kind of soup is Valipala?

Well, if Hiatus Kaiyote, Chaka Khan, and Chick Corea all made a soup together, Valipala might sound something like the soup in the next pot over. Add some jazz croutons and funk matzo balls. Maybe you’d use a trumpet for a spoon. However you slurp it, this soup for the soul has been on the burner since 2012, on the stovetop known as New York City. Valipala’s first course, Mango City EP, was dished out in October 2017.

Oberlin’s own, little bear’s “electrabrasspop” opens the door to a combination playground, club, forest, parade, and cave: a space of joy, vulnerability, self-reflection and optimism. Bronx-born multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer, and poet Aaron Kisslinger’s screaming brass cries questions whose answers you’ll whistle to yourself later. Kisslinger invites the listener to reimagine the world as a place of equity, openness, curiosity and beauty.
