Vostok and Sudanda East Van House Concert
An intimate evening with two great bands sharing music from Eastern Europe and the Sudan!

Doors at 7:30. Music at 8:00.

Vostok is a female vocal trio who perform music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans. "Vostok" means The East - we share Eastern European music, and we hail from East Vancouver. Singers Aliya Griffin, Emily Villavicencio, and Jessica Hood deliver a rich and varied set in more than ten languages and dialects.  Their repetoire includes a Russian-Karelian lullaby, a dissonant Bulgarian chant, a Ukrainian spring song first heard on a Kiev subway, a Chechen lament for homeland, and a Yiddish song of yearning. Vostok takes the listener from bliss to despair and back again.

Sudanda was formed in 2004 around the music of Alaaeldin Abdalla, a composer, singer and oud player.  He is originally from the Sudan and now living in Vancouver.  Alaaeldins music draws on traditional Sudanese forms, and he composes music for contemporary Sudanese poets. In 1991, Alaaeldin was forced to leave the Sudan, because the new government at that time brought violence and abuse of human rights, and repression of artists of all kinds. After coming to Vancouver, he met other musicians, and formed Sudanda in 2004.  The name of the band is a combination of Sudan and Canada. Current band members include Earle Peach on guitar and bass, Jane Kalmakoff on accordion, James Griffiths on trumpet, and Wesley Skakun on percussion.

A night not to be missed!
