Re: “Little Bucharest Bistro

Little Bucharest has music this Friday, March 8, 2013 starting at 8:30 PM.
Harmonia features:
Alexander Fedoriouk - cimbalom ~ Steven Greenman - violin
Walt Mahovlich - accordion ~ Andrei Pidkivka - nai, sopilka, tilinca
Brano Brinarsy - bass and vocals ~ Beata Begeniova - vocals

Harmonia: The harmonic, rhythmic and tonal richness of Gypsy and village music from east of the Danube are channeled by this "musical gem" (NPR). Featuring top soloists from Ukraine and Slovakia and with roots in Hungary and Croatia, the ensemble includes violin, accordion, vocals, folk flutes and the 125-string cimbalom. Harmonia plugs into the energy and excitement of music from a rich variety of Eastern European traditions, making the depth and fire of these culture come alive. Technical brilliance only adds to Harmonia’s breathtaking performances; their rhythms move in a heartbeat from mellow and dissonant to loud and frenzied. As Songlines put it, “Prepare to be hammered!” This group from Cleveland Ohio is a must see. You will not be disappointed.
Visit www.harmoniaband.com for more about the group.
