Përolas is an electro-acoustic project, featuring the unique combination of Liana Perillo on Harp & Vocals, Fabian Aravalès on Guitars, Trumpet, Synthesiser and the live and electronic drums of Louis Spencely. Përolas is amongst the very few in Melbourne, Australia, to bring the harp into the contemporary acoustic-electric realm by coupling this ancient instrument with analogue effects and eclectic instrumentation.
From up-tempo beats to ethereal soundscapes, and an intercultural flavour, Përolas bring a unique and intriguing energy and essence through their original compositions and musical arrangements, recently earning the award for
‘Best intercultural Act’ for the 2019 Music Victoria Awards.
