Planina is a group of singers and instrumentalists from the Denver-Boulder area that performs haunting and beautiful songs from eastern Europe, including music from Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Georgia, Hungary, Macedonia, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Lithuania, Turkey and Ukraine, and the Sephardic and Rom (Gypsy) traditions from some of those areas. The word Planina means "mountain" in several south Slavic languages.
