Charming Hostess is a band that grew out of the avant-rock scene of Oakland, California, in the mid-1990s. Today, the music primarily springs from three women with an emphasis in the body-voices and vocal percussion, handclaps and heartbeats, sex-breath and silence. The work grows from diaspora consciousness: both Jewish and African. Stylistically, Charming Hostess incorporates doo-wop, Pygmy counterpoint, Balkan harmony and Andalusian melody.
