Sanctuary: A Cathedral Concert
ABOUT KITKA Kitka, meaning "bouquet" in Bulgarian and Macedonian, began in 1979 as a grassroots group of singers from diverse ethnic and musical backgrounds who shared a passion for the stunning dissonances, asymmetric rhythms, intricate ornamentation, lush harmonies, and resonant strength of Eastern European women's vocal traditions. Since it's informal beginnings, the group has evolved into a professional touring ensemble that has earned international recognition for it's artistry, versatility, and fresh approach to folk music. Through a busy itinerary of live and broadcast performances, recordings, educational programs, master artist residencies, commissioning programs, and adventuresome collaborations, Kitka has exposed millions to the haunting beauty of their unique body of repertoire. Kitka has released eight recordings on their own Diaphonica record label, most recently Sanctuary: A Cathedral Concert.
