Culture at the Crossroads: Kitka and Milla with Chicago Tamburasi
The culminating event of the Culture at the Crossroads concert series will be a concert featuring Kitka and Milla Milojkovic with the Chicago Tamburasi. Two creative forces in Balkan music on the same program! Kitka striving to expand the boundaries of folksong as a living and evolving expressive art form, and Milla exploring the synthesis between jazz and Balkan music with the stellar sidemen of the Chicago Tamburasi.
Ethnic food at 7:30PM, concert at 8PM, and dancing afterwards.
Kitka is an American women's vocal arts ensemble inspired by traditional songs and vocal techniques from Eastern Europe. Dedicated to developing new audiences for music rooted in Balkan, Slavic, and Caucasian women's vocal traditions, Kitka also strives to expand the boundaries of folk song as a living and evolving expressive art form with adventuresome collaborations.
Milla Milojkovic is a well-known San Francisco jazz singer. Born to a Croatian mother who grew up in Bosnia, and a Serbian father, folk music and culture was a prominent feature of her youth. Milla enjoys the creative freedoms of jazz, and believes that there is a true synthesis between jazz and Balkan music, for both genres welcome improvisation and require chops. She will be accompanied by the stellar Chicago Tamburasi; Adis Sirbubalo, Danny Ovanin, Ryan Werner, Marko (suco) Dreher and Steve Ovanin.
