Janam ( My Soul ) blends Balkan, Near Eastern and American roots and original music, creating rapturous acoustic textures, whirling rhythms and stunning vocal harmonies. Led by Kitka Women’s Vocal Ensemble veteran Juliana Graffagna, Janam unites some of the San Francisco Bay Area's most imaginative and devoted practitioners of Balkan and Near Eastern music, who weave together Eastern exoticism, gritty Appalachian folk melodies and their own inspired compositions.

This show will feature special guest Greg Jenkins on clarinet.

Vadalma:
Exploring vibrant, intimate arrangements of old Hungarian folk songs, Vadalma (“Wild Apple”) is a collaborative project led by Zina Bozzay with Matthew Szemela and Misha Khalikulov. Zina brings songs from village traditions around the Carpathian Basin, and together the musicians blend traditional and historical roots with their own diverse musical backgrounds to craft personal renditions of these rich songs.
