CARA Award CARA 2003 Award Winner for Best Album and Best Song ("La Comida")
A passionate a cappella celebration of women's voices and percussion with songs that affirm life and sing a vision of one world at peace - spanning the spectrum of original and traditional music - sung in English, Yiddish, Hebrew and Ladino. Heart Beat: a place where the personal, social, political and spiritual resonate in harmony. Includes a Yiddish song of resistance ("Zog Maran"), a Brazilian song of praise ("Elokim Noten Hakol"), and a joyous song adapted from a South African freedom anthem that will get you to your feet ("Yesh Lanu Koach"). Derk Richardson of the San Francisco Bay Guardian said, "These Yiddish Divas make music that embodies peace, resilience, reconciliation, and the notion that we will overcome our enemies with our singing."

CARA Award CARA 1998 Award Runner-up for Best Folk Song ("Eretz Shiv'at Haminim")
Just Plain Folks Award Just Plain Folks 2006 Award Nominee for Best Song ("Behold!")
Another tapestry from Vocolot of breathtakingly beautiful melodies, harmonies and dynamic percussion. Includes the passionate, upbeat anti-war "Lo Yisa Goy," the sensuous, evocative, "Sham'a VaTismach Tsiyon", and the elevating, healing lyrics and harmonies of "Camarada," an adaptation from Walt Whitman's "Song of the Open Road." This is music with universal heart, Jewish soul and social conscience.
