"A stunning group unlike any otherabsolutely electrifying!"Garrison Keillor, A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION

"Even God stops to listen when KITKAunamplified, without sets, props, instruments, or even lyrics most people can understandopens its collective mouth. The sound is so chillingly beautiful, by anyone's standards, that the entire audience sits enraptured, most of them with eyes shut. My own eyes flooded with tears."
Summer Burkes, THE GUARDIAN

"Simply amazing harmonies...truly this is the most wonderful singing I have ever heard."


"The singing of KITKA was tangy, excellently in tune and verbally communicative."Andrew Porter, THE NEW YORKER

"KITKA shares the same haunting repertoire as Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares plus Bosnian, Croatian, Macedonian, Russian, and Ukrainian folk materialbut KITKA's sonority is much more supple and lyrical than its Bulgarian counterpart."

"Their power and energy is exotic and exhilarating showcasing the beauty and vitality of female voices." Heidi Zemach, NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO

"[KITKA's] music's power is in the lusty, full voiced singing and glottal gymnastics, which are capable of taking the top of your head right off."
Bill Tilland, OPTION

"KITKA trafficked in ghostly harmonies and delicious discord. The eight vocalists sang dissonant and diaphanous lovesongs, laments, and lullabies. The voices soared." Sam Hurwitt, THE PACIFIC SUN

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. Kitka's activities include an Oakland-based home series of concerts and vocal workshops; regional, national, and international touring; programs in the schools; recording, publication, and broadcast projects; master artist residencies; commissioning; community service work; and adventuresome collaborations.
