Vadalma (“Wild Apple”) creates vibrant, intimate settings of Hungarian village folk songs, featuring the rich singing traditions of Transylvania, Moldova, Transdanubia, and other areas of the Carpathian Basin. These striking melodies, unique rhythms, and colorful lyrics are framed with both traditional and original accompaniment. Zina Bozzay - voice, arrangements; Matthew Szemela - violin; Misha Khalikulov - cello; with special guests Fábián Éva - voice, ütőgardon; Navratil Andrea - voice; and Agócs Gergely - Transdanubian long flute.
Vadalma learns all of their repertoire directly from last living village singers and archival field recordings, and has collaborated in shared performances with numerous musicians from Hungary. More info at www.zinabozzay.com/vadalma
