Finno-Balkan Voices

Finno-Balkan Voices

Finno-Balkan Voices comprises two groups of singers, the Finnish group Mamo and the Vaya Quartet from Bulgaria. Together, they form a line-up which combines two strong singing traditions. Their repertoire includes folk songs, commissioned pieces and songs written by the members of the ensemble. Eight unique voices combine to form an unusual and beautiful sound.

The idea for Finno-Balkan Voices came from Emmi Kujanpää. During her studies in the Plovdiv Academy of Music, Dance and Fine Arts in Bulgaria in 2009, she had a vision to combine the vocal traditions of Bulgaria and Finland. Since 2010, when the ensemble was founded, the singers have performed in both Finland and Bulgaria with great success. From the very beginning, Finno-Balkan Voices have been working together with Professor Dora Hristova, a legend of Bulgarian choral music.
