“A stunning group unlike any other ... absolutely electrifying!”

Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion

Kitka is an American women’s vocal ensemble inspired by traditional songs and vocal techniques from Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

Founded in 1979 as an offshoot of the Westwind International Folk Ensemble, Kitka began as a grassroots group of amateur singers from diverse ethnic and musical backgrounds who shared a passion for the stunning dissonances, asymmetric rhythms, intricate ornamentation, and resonant strength of traditional Eastern European women’s vocal music.

Since its informal beginnings, the group has evolved into an award-winning professional touring ensemble known for its artistry, versatility, and mastery of the demanding techniques of regional vocal styling, as well as for its innovative explorations in new music for female voices.
