We are honored to welcome the internationally renown vocal virtuoso- who left a promising career in opera to gather and preserve the ancient songs of folk and indigenous traditions for her Vermont Debut. Joined by Rising Appalachia’s Biko Casini and Jacob Matheus – this will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Peia in a very intimate venue.
As an archival songstress, Peia has gathered songs from ancient traditions that span across the globe- from the mountains of Bulgaria to the shores of Ireland, touching upon the wisdom and trials of the Native peoples of North and South America and preserving the enchantment of medieval chant and Indian Raga. She has traveled extensively to uncover melodies wrinkled and wise with time, laboring faithfully to revive their language, stories and original essence.
A powerful voice in the rising global community of people who are committed to restoring a balanced relationship with the Earth, Peia expresses her holistic vision and passion through her music, educational workshops and advocacy for indigenous and environmental rights groups.
Gifted with a broad, soaring vocal range and crystalline tone, Peia’s song pierces the heart with bell like clarity. She sings with depth and beauty, accompanying herself with charango, harmonium, and guitar. Her revolving collaborative ensemble weaves rich vocal harmonies, cello, an eclectic array of percussion, and flamenco guitar. Peia’s performances offer authentic re-imaginings of traditional musical treasures along with a stunning repertoire of her original songs.
