Songs of Our Families: World premiere of This Baba, a film by Bogdan Darev, and Bulgarian Voices of Seattle Women's Choir concert
The first half of the concert features Bulgarian Voices of Seattle Women's Choir and friends presenting songs they learned from family and friends, beloved songs and folklore enactments in the culmination of the Songs of Our Families Bulgarian Heritage Project. We are thrilled to include Michael Lawson (accordion) and David Bilides (tambura, kaval) in this special moment for the choir.

The world premiere of This Baba, a film by Bogdan Darev, will be the second half of the concert.

This Baba is the story of Bulgarian Voices singer Penka Encheva who was an extraordinary traditional singer as a young woman in her native country of Bulgaria. She had dreams of becoming a professional singer, but her path led her to another life, as a teacher. In 2010, at age 67, she came to America to live with her daughter's family and help care for her two young grandsons. Penka's is a universal story of grandmothers from every country across the globe who are divided between here and there, isolated by a lack of English, stuck in suburbs, missing their friends and loved ones back home. Here's a link to the trailer:
