Music At ENFF

One of our special guests this year is ALEKSANDRA POPOVSKA, Macedonian-Dutch musician who is challenging the way we listen to the voice. The Hague-based singer, composer, choir leader and researcher, is renowned for adventurous approach to live performance and her creative projects fusing traditional music with contemporary/classical, live electronics.

Furthermore, special musical performance by BALKAN VROUWENKOOR AMSTERDAM. These passionate singers led by Julia Scepanovic have been performing songs from the Balkans and East Europe since 2010. The choir was founded in Amsterdam and it consists of women of all ages, from those in their early twenties to sixty plus.

Vocal ensemble CHERVONI KORALI (red choral – typical Ukrainian necklace) unites amateur singers who live in The Netherlands, love to sing Ukrainian songs and promote Ukrainian traditions and culture abroad.

Jazz guitarist, composer and educator LUDMIL KRUMOV will perform at the opening of ENFF with THE SMALL BULGARIAN FOLK JAZZ ORCHESTRA. A collective of Bulgarian instrumentalists who cross the boundaries of stylistic conventions, blending their diverse musical and life experience in amalgam of talent, characters, composition and spontaneous improvisations.
