About NY Bulgarian Women’s Choir “Yasna Voices”
Yasna Voices is a diverse, joyful, expansive group of singers, sharing a passion for ensemble harmony, folk traditions and experimentation. Weaving together traditional Bulgarian village songs with artfully arranged a cappella pieces in the style of Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares and spontaneous group improvisation, the ensemble reveals the disarming power and intimacy of the unaccompanied voice. Their reinterpretations of ancient songs tell timeless tales of sweet or forbidden love, horses and wild mountains, potent wine, pepper planting, the secrets of the moon, and the sun’s falling in love with a beautiful girl and her song.
Using space creatively, Yasna Voices has collaborated with dance and theater ensembles, and multimedia artists, and is equally at home at folk festivals, modern art museums, or community events. Founded by Bulgarian-born vocalist & composer Vlada Tomova, and binging a rich amalgam of individual heritages, the singers come from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland, Russia, and the USA.
