ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The voices of the eight women of KITKA-sometimes earthy, sometimes ethereal, always soulful- shine brilliantly on this much-anticipated collection of 20 seasonal songs gathered from many Eastern European lands and spiritual traditions. Highlights include ritual songs, folk carols and sacred hymns from Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Macedonia, Moravia, Romania, Russia, and Ukraine that celebrate the Winter Solstice, Christmas, Chanukah, St. Basil's Day, Epiphany, and the New Year. These are songs that ring out to warm and brighten cold, dark nights; songs that ward off evil spirits; songs that bestow blessings for health and prosperity; songs that call out "allelujah," and songs that summon peace on earth and good tidings to all.

This collection of 20 gorgeous songs, collected from many lands and spiritual traditions throughout Eastern Europe, was recorded in the sublime acoustics of Skywalker Ranch by Leslie Ann Jones and produced by Grammy- nominee Linda Tillery. Accompanying KITKA are guest artists Rumen Shopov on tambura and bouzouki, Peter Maund on percussion, and Dan Cantrell on accordion. KITKA singers also accompany themselves on bells, percussion, violin, flute, and tamburas. A twelve-page booklet with beautiful artwork by Catherine Rose Crowther, song translations, and fascinating seasonal folklore is included with each disc.
