Kela Parker is a performer and composer who writes “enigmatic,” “genre-bending” avant folk rock music, crossover chamber jazz, and whatever other methods she can find to muddle acoustical boundaries. Receiving her Masters of Music Composition from Vermont College of Fine Arts in February 2016, Kela’s music explores narrative, culture, identity, time, and mysticism.
