Many of you have been asking about when OBI will be back to live shows. Though our answer will be primarily determined by the state of the pandemic, we wanted to—in the meantime—share with you a collection of videos in December and January from our 2019 holiday show at the Cedar Cultural Center, “Kolyada: Winter Songs from the Black Sea.” If you were there, you know it was a really, really fun collaborative concert between OBI, percussionist Peter O’Gorman, Mila Vocal Ensemble, and Nomadi.
In these videos, you’ll hear Christmas and New Year carols from Romania, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Georgia, Russia, plus some songs to bring general good cheer. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel, if you haven’t already, so you can get notified as soon as a new video is posted (hint: Only a select few will be posted here on our website, so it’s worth it to subscribe)! We’ll also let you know on our Facebook Artist Page, so be sure you’re following us there as well for news and updates.
We wish you all a healthy, happy, and joyous winter holiday season!
