Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble
From

The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices, a mid-80s recording, introduced the wider world to the plaintive, haunting sounds of Balkan singing.  We’ll hear that original recording, as well as music from Ukraine's Mariana Sadovska with the women’s choir, Kitka, from their phenomenal record "The Rusalka Cycle." Also, hear Ingram Marshall's orchestral work, “Hidden Voices”, incorporating the sounds of Balkan funeral laments. Plus, music from two distant musical Central Asian cousins, the Bulgarian Choir Angelite and Huun-Huur-Tu, performing music together based on Bulgarian, Tuvan, and Russian traditions.  And more.
