KITKA Women's Vocal Ensemble

A women’s vocal ensemble unlike any other, KITKA blends contemporary sensibility with specialized vocal techniques that have been distilled over centuries, performing works that originate over the length and breadth of Eastern Europe.

These sophisticated singers blend a contemporary sensibility with specialized vocal techniques from Eastern Europe that have been distilled over centuries. Using only the pure unaccompanied voice, they create a constantly shifting landscape of sound, pulsing with angular rhythms, where dramatic dynamics leap from delicate stillness to shattering resonance, and seamless unisons explode into lush incomprehensible chords.

 “KITKA’s songs are hauntingly beautiful, simple, yet otherworldly. The rich sound these women produce resonates as if energized by the universe itself, as if it were calling all live beings and still matter into togetherness and unity.”

KITKA's material ranges from ancient village duets to complex contemporary choral works.  The many languages in which they sing are largely unfamiliar to American ears — Albanian, Armenian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Georgian, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Ladino, Laz, Latvian, Macedonian, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Ukrainian, Yiddish. It is exactly this unfamiliarity that is so riveting, as KITKA’s sensitive precision lifts their work out of the merely musical into a universe beyond words, an experience that is primal, elemental

 “KITKA’s Simply amazing harmonies…truly this is the most wonderful singing I have ever heard.”
    —David Crosby, CROSBY, STILLS, AND NASH
