Echoes Playlist
Stellamara is a Bay Area band creating a world music of the imagination, filtered through eastern European refrains, spun in Persian grooves, blended in medieval modalities and supercharged by San Francisco's multi-cultural sensibilities. It's all centered by the vocal incantations of Sonja Drakulich, whose voice evokes Bulgarian choirs and middle eastern ululations in this richly layered, percussive world fusion. They've just released their first CD in 8 years, called THE SEVEN VALLEYS (Lucidity Music.) In their Oakland home, Stellamara boards a music caravan from Persia to Bulgaria.
