: A Balkan Journey – Concert by the Orfeia Vocal Ensemble
About: The Orfeia Vocal Ensemble will lead a magical journey through the rich musical heritage of the Balkans, which is famous for its sharp dissonances, haunting lyricism, and asymmetric rhythms. Orfeia will share its extensive repertoire, spanning the Bulgarian, Serbian, Bosnian, and Roma traditions by situating each song in its unique cultural context. The audience also will join in by learning a traditional Bulgarian village song. The concert, which is sponsored by the Takoma Park Arts cultural series, is free and no tickets are required. A $10 donation is suggested to support the performers. We hope to see you there!
