Slaveya – from the Bulgarian for nightingale – is a women’s vocal ensemble in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area specializing in East European a cappella folk music.  Slaveya's repertoire reflects village life: the harvest, war heroes, matchmaking, love and flirtation, birth and death, and are traditionally sung at work or while participating in community festivities and seasonal celebrations. Slaveya is inspired by the vocal heritage of the Balkans, Caucasus Georgia, and neighboring regions.  In addition to folk songs, Slaveya interprets sacred vocal music from the Orthodox traditions of the Balkans and Georgia.
