    Aug 15

    Cleveland, OH, US | 7:00pm

    Harmonia performs as part of Arts in August this Friday, August 15 at 7:00 PM. The harmonic, rhythmic and tonal richness of Gypsy and village music from east of the Danube are channeled by this "musical gem" (National Public Radio). Featuring top soloists from Ukraine and Slovakia and with roots in Hungary and Croatia, this Cleveland-based ensemble includes violin, accordion, vocals, folk flutes and the 125-string hammered-dulcimer-like cimbalom (played by Alexander Fedoriouk, "a cimbalom supremo—prepare to be hammered" Songlines). Combining original and traditional music, Harmonia plugs into the energy and excitement of music from a rich variety of Eastern European traditions. Harmonia makes the depth, fire, and passion of Gypsy, Hungarian, Slovak, Romanian, Ukrainian, Rusyn, Croatian, and Serbian music and 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. . Imagine the energy of the Pogues, only with a female singer and no drummer. A joy by any standard.

Press

"They kicked things off with a short but impressive set of Romanian Gypsy music,... Mahovlich wailed on clarinet...Things really got cooking when Fedoriouk took hammers to cimbalom. His fiery playing was jaw-droppingly fast, evoking gasps from the audience."

— PEGGY J. LATKOVICH, The Free Times Cleveland, Ohio
