One beautiful collaboration this Christmas is with Sebastian Doe, Croatian musician. Ana sang and wrote lyrics for the version of his song for Orthodox Christmas. Enjoy the music!

The gifts we got for the new year were performances. At the invitation of Gorica Popović, we had the honor of participating in Atelje 212‘s performance The Ship Sails for Belgrade.

In the New Year’s campaign intended for Shelter for children from the street and from the Safe House in Novi Sad, organized by the Apostoli Moto Club, we performed a part of the performance for children Centipede Rhymes.

We had a privilege of hosting a New Balkan Rhythm home session at Fruška gora with Vilma Talvitie in November. We hosted Vilma for two days: one day for the residency and second for recording of the session. We hope we will play together again soon.

Vilma Talvitie is a Finnish artist, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, based in Helsinki. She builds bridges between folk, world and pop music, singing about dark topics with a bright voice, influenced by Finn-Ugric folk singing techniques.

For the last years Vilma has been traveling and performing in 30 countries around Europe, Asia and Latin America, creating her concept “100 songs around the world”, and developing her unique instrument PianoBodyPercussion (combining piano, percussions, body percussions and dance). Vilma is currently releasing her first solo studio album. She holds a master in music from the University of the Arts Helsinki.
