Wisteria Ways, a house concert series in North Oakland/Rockridge, presents Ya Elah: Balkan and Middle Eastern style spiritual music

Ya Elah emerged from a longing to illuminate the beauty, mystery and power of the world’s many spiritual paths.

Equal parts musical fireworks/healing ritual/rollicking good time, Ya Elah sparkles with the influence of Bulgarian village songs, Middle Eastern melodies, and more from our world’s various musical traditions.  Our music combines the sacred texts and liturgies of many traditions to reveal the deep knowing that all life is one. Ya Elah aspires to inspire compassion among diverse cultures and hopes to help bring healing and a sense of wonder at the ways all have connected to the Divine. Join us for fun, healing, participatory singing and dancing!

Ya Elah is based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Members include Bon Singer (Director, voice, co-founder of Kitka; premiere director of Balkan music recognized worldwide); Diana Rowan (harp, percussion); Erica Hockette (voice); Evelie Delfino Såles Posch (voice, percussion, admin); Jeannette Ferber (voice).
