Possessing a sumptuous voice and supple sense of rhythm, Santa Cruz-reared, Brooklyn-based Eva Salina is a groundbreaking interpreter of Balkan Romani songs.

Mentored by some of the greatest living Balkan musicians, she’s attained a deeply informed and passionately felt repertoire of Romani tunes and vintage Balkan pop songs.

Last year she released the breakthrough Lema Lema, a brass-laden tribute to Romani legend Šaban Bajramović. She performs in a duo with Peter “Perica” Stan, a Serbian/Romanian Roma accordionist known for his playful innovation and soulful, intuitive improvisations. Together they create a welcoming space where joy and sorrow seamlessly coexist, with mournful ballads nestling gently among songs of celebration.
