RUSALKI

RUSALKI

is a world music a capella quartet based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

 

Founded in 1996, Rusalki sings traditional songs from Europe, Asia and Africa.

The group's original arrangements give the old songs a new lease of life and an unexpected sparkle. The group sings in more than thirty languages.

The program varies from Russian, Balkan and Roma to a more exotic mix of songs from Lapland, Kurdistan, Vietnam, Kenya, Nepal, Ireland, Pakistan and many other countries.

Most of the plural harmonies are sung without accompaniment, some with guitar or accordion. The quartet adds a touch of theatre to its performance to enhance the music and bridge the possible language gap. website
