The Nightingale Trio: Izvora

By Kef Times Staff, Spring 2017

Nightingale Trio

Izvora, the Nightingale Trio's second full-length release, is rich with nuance and fire, and includes dazzling arrangements of ancient songs from Bulgaria, Macedonia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Russia and the Republic of Georgia. The 13-track album is more richly produced than the Trio’s 2013 release Letya, and demonstrates the trio’s growing mastery and confidence as emissaries of the new Balkan folk sound.

An emerging force on the global folk music scene, the Nightingale Trio serves as emissaries of the deep women's folk tradition from Eastern Europe and the Balkans. Nila Bala, Rachel LaViola, and Sarah Larsson.

$9 digital at Bandcamp.
