Bulgarian Voices Trio Concert

7581_887371794641358_6200726672908027632_nFrom the awesomeness that is Nadja Shannon-Dabek ’15: 

Do you adore Bulgarian music wholeheartedly? Do you enjoy listening to songs with crazy rhythms and incredible harmonies? Then we’ve got a treat for you!

“Vlada Tomova, known for her “phenomenal acrobatic vocalizations” (Boston Globe) joins with the dynamic vocalists Valentina Kvasova and Shelley Thomas to weave together traditional Bulgarian village styles with artfully arranged a cappella songs and reveal the disarming power and intimacy of the unaccompanied voice. Their reinterpretations of ancient songs tell old time tales of sweet or forbidden love, horses and wild mountains, potent wine, pepper planting, the moon holding secrets, and the sun falling in love with a beautiful girl and her song. Joyous, mysterious, mournful, exuberant, mesmerizing melodies; rich, unusual harmonies; and peculiar, odd rhythms come together to shimmer, intrigue, and delight the ear.

Preceding the show will be a workshop from 4-6 which will be geared towards Slavei, but anyone who is interested is welcome to join!You can also check these videos of their performances Live at Lincoln Center, and live at Fridman Gallery.

When: Workshop 4-6pm, Concert 7-8pm

From the wacky and silly Rachel Day ’16:

Across time and culture, storytelling and oral tradition are an indelible element of humankind. Connect with your primordial self and tell a story at The Sloth’s first event of the year!

The Sloth (based loosely off the group that wouldn’t let us use their name) provides a time and place where individuals can come together to share true stories from their life. We laugh, we cry, it’s all very cathartic.
