WHAT IS SLAVALACHIA?
SLAVALACHIA (Slavic + Appalachian) is an uncharted land that exists only in our shared creativity. During our collaboration and odyssey to Slavalachia, we face challenges, overcome language and cultural barriers, share our cultures and create a new one through music.
We are forging new territory regarding the preservation, popularization, and experimentation of traditional music.
This first full-length Slavalachia album will be built around traditional tunes from Belarus, Ukraine, and the Appalachian region of the USA. All musicians will contribute their creativity and culture to the chosen tunes.
A full length documentary The Road to Slavalachia will tell a story about all the musicians participants.The film is following their "journey" to Slavalachia.
