a group of singers and instrumentalists from the Denver-Boulder area specializing in traditional and contemporary folk music from Eastern Europe. We sing songs from Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Georgia, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Lithuania, Turkey and Ukraine, and Jewish and Rom (Gypsy) traditions from some of those areas. The word Planina means "mountain" in several south Slavic languages.
Members of Planina are among several groups performing very short sets as part of this community party being produced by Halina Palmer. The main event is YOU getting to participate in an open sing-along of holiday music. People of all ages and persuasions are welcome. There will be a Christmas tree and a Santa for photo ops, and hot spiced wine, cocoa and cider, and Old World cookies and treats coordinated by Halina (which means they will be delicious). You are encouraged to wear traditional costumes from any country, or holiday wear. Free and open to the public.
Join Planina for a celebration of the group’s 2018 cultural exploration in Bulgaria with an evening of new songs from the trip, favorites from the current repertoire, photographs, guest artists, and more.
