Orfeia is an all-woman vocal ensemble dedicated to preserving and sharing traditional music from Bulgaria and Eastern Europe.
Orfeia s repertoire spans the rich and varied musical heritage of Eastern Europe, Bulgaria, Russia, Georgia and the Balkans, from traditional to sacred and from the Middle Ages to modern day. The captivating and diverse sounds of the Balkans are given voice through unique harmonies and rhythms, unusual vocal ornaments, village songs, custom songs with overlapping lines, antiphonal songs with drones, seasonal music, and children s songs.
Hill Center is thrilled to welcome Orfeia as part of our Global Sounds series. Dounouya (DOON-EE-YA) is the West African word for The Whole World. This series of singular concerts, curated and hosted by Jim Thomson, features musicians at the forefront of the global music scene. Thomson will facilitate a brief conversation with the artist. This concert is presented in partnership with Multiflora Productions as a part of the Multiflora Music Festival 2017.
