KITKA is a women's vocal ensemble unlike any other. These sophisticated singers blend a contemporary sensibility with specialized vocal techniques from Eastern Europe that have been distilled over centuries. Propelled by the desire to revisit and reaffirm the rich Balkan heritage of cafe and cabaret music, Balkan Cabaret creates evenings that encourage eating, drinking, reminiscing and listening. Singing the sentimental and beautiful sevdah (often called the Bosnian Blues), vocalist Mary Sherhart explores sorrow and joy, loss and love, but she just as movingly performs rousing folk music with the other accomplished members of Balkan Cabaret.
