Maclovia Quintana

Doumbek

Maclovia Quintana was born and raised in Santa Fe, NM. Her father is a professional musician, and she was surrounded by music from an early age. She has been performing Balkan music since college, when she joined the Yale Women’s Slavic Chorus, a group she sang with for 10 years. She studied doumbek with Polly Tapia Ferber in Santa Fe. In 2012, she co-founded the Balkan band Orkestar BAM, in which she was singer and percussionist. Orkestar BAM played in New Haven and the greater New York City area for five years. She has recently relocated to San Francisco, where she is working on a yet-to-be named Balkan psychedelic musical project.
