L.A.-based folktronic band yOya to play free show at Gabe’s

  • 1


Gabe’s — Sunday, Nov. 8 at 9 p.m.

Folktronic trio yOya stop through Iowa City on their coast-to-coast tour to play a free show at Gabe’s (Oasis Stage) this Sunday, Nov. 8. The group mixes traditional folk melodies with airy electronic beats, creating a sound that is at once both familiar and refreshing.

Since their inception in 2009, yOya has received acclaim from fans and fellow musicians alike, sharing stages with the likes of Bleachers, Dawes, RJD2 and Phox — who the last of which will be stopping through Iowa City this weekend for the Witching Hour Festival.

The group names Paul Simon among their biggest musically inspirational sources, and it’s no wonder why. With a melodic, poppy drive and an inclination to experiment with mixed musical styles, yOya seems to achieve exactly what they’re looking to.
