Album Notes
In Slavic folklore, Rusalki are the restless spirits of women who have died unjust, untimely or unnatural deaths. They inhabit the waters, forests, and fields, luring people to them with their mesmerizing songs and wild laughter. Performed by the eight powerful vocalists of Kitka, The Rusalka Cycle is a riveting dream-like journey that weaves traditional Eastern European folk song together with original music by Mariana Sadovska. This CD features Kitka singing as you’ve never heard them sing before. With stirring accompaniment by cellists Moses Sedler and Elaine Kreston, and percussionist Kevin Mummey, this CD captures the highly dramatic and risk-taking performance piece that took the San Francisco Bay Area by storm in the fall of 2005. Plans are currently underway to tour The Rusalka Cycle nationally and internationally in 2007-2008.

The Rusalka Cycle
Strange, weird at first, but the mystery of the music and refrains grow on you leaving you wanting to hear more.
