KITKA performs Wintersongs
A highly-acclaimed, stunningly beautiful, multi-cultural vocal tribute to the winter season.
The ethereal, haunting and beautiful songs of Kitka’s Wintersongs return by popular demand.
This winter holiday tradition showcases seasonal music from a wide variety of Eastern European ethnic and spiritual traditions. For countless centuries, people around the world have utilized the power of community singing to infuse warmth, cheer, spirituality, wishes for peace, health, and good fortune into the long, dark, cold and difficult winter season.
Kitka’s program features songs ranging from rousing Slavic folk carols; to lush meditative Eastern Orthodox sacred choral works; to Baltic pagan incantations for the return of the Sun Goddess, to Caucasus Georgian hallelujahs; to Yiddish, Sephardic, and Hebrew songs for Chanukah; to Bosnian-Muslim devotional hymns; to rhythmic Balkan Romany tunes for the winter festivals.
Warm up the winter and celebrate the season with beautiful vocal harmonies.
“A stunning group unlike any other…absolutely electrifying!”
—Garrison Keillor, A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION
“Simply amazing harmonies…truly this is the most wonderful singing I have ever heard.”
—David Crosby, CROSBY, STILLS, AND NASH
