Nevenka is a Los Angeles-based women's folk chorus performing music from Eastern Europe. Nevenka's repertoire includes songs from Bulgaria, Macedonia, Croatia, Albania, Russia, Greece, and Georgia, as well as Ladino Sephardic and Rom (Gypsy) songs.
The group was formed in 1976 by women who shared a common interest in the complex harmonies and compelling rhythms typical in Balkan music.
Very much in the Eastern European tradition, Nevenka includes women of all ages making music together.
