Anja & Zlatna perform and preserve the beauty of traditional melodies, fusing them with the structural architecture of Baroque and practices of 17th century and folk languages.
Their original approach to instrumentation features the harpsichord in a leading role. Sometimes one hears guitars, cimbalom or accordion, together painting rich sonic textures and fresh musical delights.
‘Thanks to life, which has given me so much. It gave me laughter and it gave me tears. With them I distinguish happiness from pain. The two elements that make up my song.’ [Mercedes Sosa, Gracias a la vida]
Anja & Zlatna seeks to celebrate the joys of life – be it the admiration of a loved one, a wistful daydream, flawless beauty or just another ordinary Balkan day. Let their performance guide you on an emotion-filled journey that rejoices in everyday delights and special moments.
