Vadalma (“Wild Apple”) creates vibrant, intimate arrangements of Hungarian village folk songs, featuring the rich singing traditions of Transylvania, Moldavia, Transdanubia, and other areas of the Carpathian Basin. Led by Zina Bozzay, with the fiery fiddling of Matthew Szemela and Misha Khalikulov’s soulful cello, these striking melodies, unique rhythms, and colorful lyrics are framed with both traditional and original accompaniment. Vadalma has collaborated with numerous artists from Hungary, including the Enyedi-Salamon Quartet, Berecz István, and Dűvő, and received many grants for their work, bringing a new face to this beautiful heritage around the US.
