Doralice (Dor-a-LEECE) is an instrumental acoustic duo formed in San Francisco’s Mission District in 2010. We write & perform cinematic chamber pieces inspired by film and new acoustic music, incorporating elements of Americana, gypsy, Spanish & tango. We have performed alongside indie, folk, post-rock, metal, & noise groups as often as chamber, jazz or world acts, in settings ranging from punk clubs to classical house concerts. Our 2013 debut album became the #1 acoustic album on Bandcamp and was followed by a viral video & EP of acoustic reinterpretations of classic metal in 2015. We are self-releasing our second full length album on 11/3/17.
