Anja & Zlatna is a vibrant ensemble which fuses the beauty of traditional melodies from the Balkans and beyond with 17th-century practices and improvisations.
Its unique sound is due in part to its original approach to instrumentation featuring the harpsichord. Sometimes one hears guitars, cimbalom, accordion kaval or ney. Vocalists Anja & Zlatna vary their techniques from traditional European to the Bulgarian chest voice and unexpected percussive timbres offer new musical delights.
Anja & Zlatna continues a Balkan journey where the music and stories make you feel just like you are there. What happens when you fall in love when young and untried? Could you relate to a girl who loves to take off her shoes and dance until sunrise? Have you been to Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance? Hear Anja & Zlatna sing and play their wonderful music from the Balkans.
