Art song gets earthy and edgy with three compelling, genre-defying female vocalists. With a voice that ranges from ethereal to earth-shaking, the Ukrainian-born Mariana Sadovska finds fresh iterations of age-old Slavic melodies and aching traditional songs while accompanying herself on harmonium. She collaborates with Kronos Quartet in a "pagan requiem," exploring ideas of destruction and creation.
Emily Wells embraces hip-hop, gospel, symphonic flights of fancy, and quirky layered pop to create atmospheric, infectious songs with live loops of keys, strings, beats, and vocals.
Shara Worden's velvety, delicate voice floats beautifully over My Brightest Diamond's sonically inventive alt-rock experiments.
KRONOS at 40 is presented in association with Kronos Performing Arts Association, a non-profit organization.
