Since 1976, Radost Folk Ensemble has presented the dance, music and song of Eastern Europe throughout the Pacific Northwest. The Radost repertoire includes the traditions of Croatia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia, Ukraine and Russia with authentic costumes and live music on traditional instruments. Joining the Ensemble is Dunava, a Seattle-based women's vocal ensemble specializing in the a cappella folk music of Eastern Europe. Founded in 2005, the group is made up of singers from diverse musical backgrounds who share a passion for complex and beautiful harmonies. The choir's repertoire includes songs from the Balkans as well as other Slavic countries and the Caucasus.
