Album Notes
Cabiria has a unique sound that combines sensual trip-hop grooves driven by classical voice and harmony. The phrasing of their hauntingly melodic music borrows from classical works of composers such as Rachmaninov and Chopin, with a down-tempo groove inspired by Portishead and many others who have shaped the trip-hop genre.

Cabiria’s melodic sound is captured through the powerful operatic vocals of Rachel Jane Henry, who has been trained classically. Part of the band's characteristic sound is the interplay between Rachel's intense, high-register lyrical melodies, and Meredith Bogacz’s sullen and seductive violin playing. The main accompaniment is the nylon string guitar played by Claudio Morsella, adding hints of Flamenco and Spanish technique to the brooding quality of Cabiria’s sound. The trip-hop influence manifests through the combination of live drum and bass, defining this genre for Cabiria.

Originally from Boston, Cabiria came to life in 2004 and developed a following in New England by performing most venues in the city. In 2006 they released their debut LP “No Time for Dreaming” which has been described as a “Hauntingly Beautiful Operatic Trip-Hop Masterpiece”. Now in New York City, Cabiria has been performing with a new lineup and has just released their six song EP, “A Product of Humankind”. This album reflects the new qualities in Cabiria’s sound, as the band tries to market their music to a bigger audience. Cabiria is seeking interests from Labels, Film and other avenues for their music. Please visit:
