Varimezov Family Band

April 18, 2015 at 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Undisputed stars of Bulgarian Traditional Music, the Varimezov Family in concert. Bulgarian vocal music is one of the most captivating sounds of the world. At the apex of this tradition are Ivan and Tzvetanka Varimezov. In this rare appearance they are joined by daughters Radka and Tanya. They share the program with high voltage, folk-delicious yet avant garde Appalachian harmonies by moira smiley & VOCO quartet whose music is inspired by the Varimezov family.
