Operating as a collective, without a director, the Victoria-based Balkan Babes showcase a capella music of Eastern Europe, including Bulgaria, Croatia, Dalmatia, Georgia, Macedonia, Serbia, and Ukraine. In doing so, they enchant audiences with the penetrating harmonies and asymmetrical rhythms that characterize the rich and ancient musical traditions of the region. While the Balkan Babes strive for an authentic sound in vocal production and pronunciation, they also open up many songs to their own contemporary interpretations and arrangements.
IN PROGRESS... thank you for your patience!
