NY Bulgarian Women's Choir Yasna Voices

 

 

Yasna Voices is a diverse, joyful, expansive group of singers, sharing a passion for ensemble harmony, folk traditions and experimentation. Weaving together traditional Bulgarian village style songs with artfully arranged a cappella pieces in the style of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares and spontaneous group improvisation, the ensemble reveals the disarming power and intimacy of the unaccompanied voice. Their interpretations of ancient songs tell timeless tales of sweet or forbidden love, horses and wild mountains, potent wine, pepper planting, the secrets of the moon, and the sun’s falling in love with a beautiful girl and her song.

 

Using space creatively, Yasna Voices has collaborated with dance and theater ensembles, and multimedia artists, and is equally at home at folk festivals, modern art museums, or community events. Bringing a rich amalgam of individual heritages, Yasna Voices has included singers from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Macedonia, Poland, Russia, and the USA. 

 

Founded and led by Vlada Tomova, Yasna Voices has presented concerts at Symphony Space and Manhattan JCC, among many others at home in New York City, and Northeast USA, and internationally in Havana, Cuba, and Koprivshtitsa Folk Festival, Bulgaria. The ensemble has collaborated with legendary Bulgarian folk singers Yanka Rupkina, and Kremena Stancheva, with the National Choir of CubaNational Folkloric Choir of Cuba, Children’s Choir LunitaBosilek Bulgarian Folk Dance Ensemble, Young Bulgarian Voices New York, Gorana Dance, and Luna Theatre, among others.

Dolunay Duo

With an array of original compositions offered alongside renditions of Turkish and Rumeli standards, the music of Dolunay (Turkish for “full moon”) infuses classic and contemporary traditions with an urban grit that can only be found in New York City’s confluence of musical and cultural forces.
