Just in time for Halloween/All Soul's Day/Samhain and other holidays which celebrate specters from the grave and beyond! Join Nadia Tarnawsky, Ukrainian American singer and Fulbright recipient, to learn a traditional song about death and dying from the United States of America, as well as a song with an eerily similar theme from Ukraine. Afraid that you don't read music? Don't worry! Ability to read music is not a prerequisite. Have deep seated fears about singing? Leave those troubles at the door! Just come with a willingness to make scary noises and sing some great songs.
Nadia Tarnawsky has been studying Eastern European singing techniques for nearly three decades and is a current Fulbright recipient. In 2002 she received a Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship which allowed her to travel to Ukraine to collect folk songs and folklore. She has taught Ukrainian village style singing in workshops for the Center for Traditional Music and Dance in New York city, Village Harmony in Vermont and Oregon, the Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble in San Francisco, and the Black Forest Fancies in New Orleans among others. In 2011 she received a Traditional Arts Fellowship from Artist Trust. She sang under the tutelage of Yevgeny Yefremov with Ensemble Hilka of New York in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Chornobyl disaster in Ukraine. A recording of this repertoire was recently released on the Smithsonian Folkways label. Most recently, she taught vocal technique in the village of Kriachkivka as part of Drevo Tabir.
