Dunava is a Seattle-based women’s vocal ensemble specializing in the a cappella folk music of Eastern Europe. Founded in 2005, Dunava is made up of singers from diverse musical backgrounds who all share a passion for complex and beautiful harmonies. The choir’s repertoire includes songs from the Balkans as well as other Slavic countries and the Caucasus.
Dunava is affiliated with the Radost Folk Ensemble, and has performed at Northwest Folklife Festival, Croatia Fest, the Seattle Folklore Society concert series, the Seattle Art Museum, and at Seattle Town Hall. In 2014 Dunava was the first American group to participate in the international folk festival “Silver Buckle” in Kjustendil, Bulgaria.
