Planina: Songs of Eastern Europe

December 5, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

This exciting group of musicians and singers hails from the Denver-Boulder area, but they all have metaphoric roots in Eastern Europe. Planina performs haunting and rousing music from the region, including songs from Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Lithuania, Turkey and Ukraine, and the Sephardic and Rom (Gypsy) traditions from some of those areas. Though mostly not eastern European by heritage, the members share a fascination with the penetrating harmonies, asymmetric rhythms and challenging vocal techniques of this region. They have been sharing their delight in this music with Colorado audiences since 1988.
