Exploring Folk Songs from Eastern Europe

Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble

KITKA presents a lively, interactive performance exploring the uniquely Eastern European "open voice.” This program illuminates the lush harmonies, odd rhythms, intricate ornamentation and resonant strength of traditional Balkan and Slavic a capella music. With love songs, laments, work songs, play songs, historical songs, lullabies, healing songs, spiritual songs and nature songs, the women of KITKA invite audiences to try on their village voices and share stories, sounds, rhythms and dances that vividly portray Eastern European village life.
