Across Borders is an evening of international music and song from Europe, the Balkans, and the Americas performed by Balkan Central Womens Folk Choir and Chubritza International Folk Band.
Balkan Central Womens Folk Choir was created by Susie Burke when she moved to Los Osos in 2016. Susie brings her beautiful voice and many years of experience performing and directing Balkan music with various groups in Los Angeles, beginning in 1974 with the AMAN Folk Ensemble where she served as their vocal director from 1984-86. Upon arriving in the Central Coast, Ms. Burke was delighted to find local women who share her love of singing world music. Today Balkan Central is a group of nine women with varied backgrounds who enjoy singing together.
Based in Arcata, Chubritza International Folk Band was founded in 1993. Chubritza is the name of a Bulgarian table spice, which is usually served as sharena sol, a mixture of savory, salt and paprika. The name reflects the bands variety and mixture of international musical tastes and textures, while retaining a Balkan and Eastern European emphasis. Chubritza plays international dance music for folk dance events, weddings, bar mitzvahs, cultural celebrations, parties and festivals
Please join us after the show for a reception and light refreshments.
