Kurbasy

11/16/2018 | Meany Center for the Performing Arts

Theatre University District

From the Carpathian mountains, Kurbasy traces contemporary connections to an archaic past. Making their first ever U.S. tour, the actress-singers are a beautifully blended vocal trio intermixing multi-faceted music, folk-influenced costumes and phantasmagoric images to explore Ukraine’s rich trove of calendar song cycles, lullabies and legends. With tight vocal harmonies and resonant lyrics, Kurbasy’s sonic-theatrical performances conjure the natural world, beliefs and rituals. It’s Ukrainian magical realism in rich, gorgeous sight and sound.
