Email a Friend
From

Listen to music from Eastern Europe on this New Sounds, including music from the legendary Czech violinist Iva Bittová, Estonian composer Veljo Tormis, Polish purveyors of hardcore-folk, the Warsaw Village Band, and others. Czech violinist/vocalist/composer Iva Bittová draws from her Jewish-Gypsy roots and never shies away from extremes in either her violin-playing or vocalizing. Hear her alternately inviting and disturbingly searing work, “The Vampires’ Ball.” Also, there’s new music from the Polish group Warsaw Village Band, in collaboration with the Gallician singer and multi-instrumentlist, Mercedes Peón, from a forthcoming 2015 record. Then, listen to music by the Czech singer/cellist duo Tara Fuki, who sing most of their repertoire in Polish. Plus, music by the female vocal choir known as Kitka in collaboration with the German-based Ukrainian composer/singer Marianna Sadovska, and more.
