Dromia at the Carmel Valley Library on Wednesday, August 27
A special free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will presented on Wednesday, August 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the library's community room. It will feature Dromia in a program of Balkan folk music. The trio, formed in 2008, plays folk music from Greece, Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, and Turkey, as well as Roma (gypsy) melodies from this region. It has performed at many venues in Southern California, including San Diego's Folk Dance Center, the annual Greek festivals in San Diego and Cardiff, Balboa Park's Mingei International Museum and Spanish Village, Cafe Aman in Los Angeles, Kypseli Greek Dance Center in Sherman Oaks, and the Laguna Folkdancers' Festival in Newport Beach. Its members are Mary Marshall on various ethnic percussion instruments, Sanna Rosengren on vocals and violin, and Dan Ziagos on accordion and guitar. The program will last 45 minutes.
All members of the trio have been playing Balkan music for over 25 years, have performed with visiting Balkan musicians, and love folk dancing. Mary Marshall has performed with The Balkantones and Slavej in Oregon, and Eastern Exposure in San Diego, and she is a folk dance teacher. Sanna Rosengren has immersed herself in Balkan singing, harmony theory, and technique. She has also performed with Planina in Denver and with Harmonija, Sokalska Grupa, and Eastern Exposure in San Diego. Her recordings include the Harmonija CD Are We There Yet? Dan Ziagos grew up in a Greek-American home and began playing and studying Greek folk melodies as a child. He has also performed with Anoush and Turlu in the San Francisco Bay Area. His recordings include the Anoush CD Sweet!
