PORTLAND —

Passionate about the unifying power of music, Zemya is inspired by some of the world’s most colorful cultures. Their concerts include vocal selections from Bulgaria, Greece, Russia, Georgia, Croatia, Israel, South Africa and the British Isles — music they interpret with their own lush and exquisite harmonies and infectious energy.

Sharing both name and spirit with the Bulgarian word for “earth,” Zemya has been delighting and surprising Maine audiences of all ages for more than 12 years. Their voices weave together lush, expressive, often haunting melodies that transport listeners to the far corners of the globe.

Directed by Deborah Gordon, the ensemble includes Joy Ahrens, Barbara Beckelman, Hildy Ginsberg, Abby King, Mischa Schuler, and Ann Swardlick.

The concert will take place at 10 Mayo Street. Tickets are $15, $10 for students, available at the door or online at www.mayostreetarts.org/events.
