Folkadelphia Session: Philadelphia Women’s Slavic Ensemble
We here at Folkadelphia are very pleased to be introducing this radio performance from the Philadelphia Women’s Slavic Ensemble, who are a community of all skills and backgrounds, singers who celebrate the music and singing styles of the Slavic folk tradition, which comes mainly from eastern Europe. This session was recorded at the WXPN performance studio and features the most amount of musicians we’ve had at one time: 29 people. Each song you’ll hear will have a brief introduction by director Cassie Glinkowski to give you some fantastic context to the music.
They have a number of public appearances coming up, including the Philly BalkanFest at The Rotunda on April 7th, and the Go West Craft Fest at Woodland Cemetery on April 27th. Below, listen to an archive of the full performance recorded by Folkadelphia’s James Clark Connor, as well as two videos captures by Gabriela Barbieri.
