Eastern Block Party with Zemya and Cinderconk
Cinder Conk plays music drawn from the Black Sea  the wellspring of Europe's deepest and most diverse musical traditions. It is the sound of celebration and lament of those who have lived on its coasts for thousands of years  Roma, Jews, peasants, and nationalists. Cinder Conk mixes frenzied accordion riffs and thundering double bass counterpoint with a classic bardic lyricism that invites and transcends.

Zemya is eleven women singing vibrant world music.
They have performed around Maine for the past few years, attracting audiences with unusual harmonies and strong meaningful lyrics. From as far north as Belgrade south to the Portland area, the eleven women of Zemya blend beautiful and edgy harmonies without accompaniment. They share folk and traditional songs from the Balkans, United Kingdom, Africa, the Americas and more and they have fun doing it! Zemya means "earth" in Bulgarian, and these songs grow from the deep soul of the world's folk music heritage.
Zemya is:
Ann Swardlick, Ceci Gilson, Cordelia Lane, Eli Arlen, Hezzy Sylvester, Joy Ahrens, Nancy Findlan, Orlina Boteva, Sue Gawler, Sue West, and director Deborah Gordon.

The performance is part of Mayo Street Arts' Performing Arts and Culture Series, a series that highlights artistic diversity and builds community in East Bayside by engaging neighborhood communities in arts performances.
