Possessing a sumptuous voice and supple sense of rhythm, Santa Cruz-reared, Brooklyn-based Eva Salina is a groundbreaking interpreter of Balkan Romani songs. Mentored by some of the greatest living Balkan musicians, she’s attained a deeply informed and passionately felt repertoire of Romani tunes and vintage Balkan pop songs. She earned international acclaim with 2016’s ravishing Lema Lema, a brass-laden tribute to Romani legend Šaban Bajramović. Her 2018 follow up, Sudbina, captures her creatively charged collaboration with Peter “Perica” Stan, a Serbian/Romanian Roma accordionist known for his playful innovation and soulful, intuitive improvisations. Together they create a welcoming space where joy and sorrow seamlessly coexist, with mournful ballads nestling gently among songs of celebration.
