Rumelia Collective is a Santa Fe based core group of three women who play traditional and contemporary music of the Balkans and Eastern Europe. All of the members of the group have studied the traditions of the region as well as western music and live and work as teachers and promoters of the traditions of this style of world music.
Rumelia Collective has performed at festivals, camps, and for folk dance groups in Washington, Oregon, Colorado, New York, Minnesota, and New Mexico. Weaving an intricate and mesmerizing blend of contemporary and traditional folk elements in their sultry arrangements of Balkan, Roma, Turkish, Greek and Sephardic tunes, Rumelia deftly spins the odd time signatures and melodies into a rousing sound that will have you up and out of your seat.
