Yasna Voices: Vocal music from Bulgaria and beyond, via Brooklyn

Hear this show now:

In the first hour of the show: Yasna Voices, an all-female a cappella ensemble led by Vlada Tomova, explores Bulgarian and other vocal traditions. The group recently received a Community grant from the Brooklyn Arts Council to develop a new project - Women's Work Woven Through Song - in which it interprets women's work songs from around the world. Yasna Voices tells us all about it and sings about it too.

Yasna Voices premieres Women's Work Woven Through Song Saturday Oct 23rd at 4pm at the Brooklyn Public Library central branch at Grand Army Plaza.

To learn more about Yasna Voices including performance dates and info about the group's new cd, contact Vlada Tomova via
