True Life Trio

Bulgaria to the Bayou

Eastern European Vocal Workshops

TLT singing workshops explore the unique harmonies, rhythms, vocal production and ornamentation of traditional women’s vocal music from Eastern Europe. The trio provides cultural context for the songs they present, including background information and anecdotes gleaned from their master singer mentors and their travels abroad. Participants will learn how to develop a personal, confident, and healthy vocal technique while droning, creating gorgeous harmonies, and resonating from head to toe. Vocal workshops are offered to small groups of singers as well as large choirs.


Educational Assemblies

True Life Trio is available for educational assemblies for grades K-12. These interactive workshops offer students a fun and interesting survey of traditional Balkan and Eastern European vocal styles, rhythms and musical forms. Through demonstrations, stories, participatory singing and vocal acrobatics, and rhythmic movement, students will come away with a great taste of Eastern European folk music traditions.
