Vadalma (“Wild Apple”) creates vibrant, intimate arrangements of old Hungarian village folk songs, featuring the rich singing traditions of Transylvania, Moldavia, Transdanubia, and other areas of the Carpathian Basin.  With the fiery fiddling of Matthew Szemela, Misha Khalikulov’s soulful cello, and Zina Bozzay’s genuine singing, these striking melodies, unique rhythms, and colorful lyrics are framed with both traditional and original accompaniment.  Recipients of numerous grants, Vadalma brings a new face to this beautiful heritage around the US.

Zina Bozzay - voice, ütőgardon

Matthew Szemela - violin

Misha Khalikulov - cello

 

Trained by master folk singers in Hungary, Zina Bozzay has performed at the Táncháztalálkozó, Hungarian Heritage House, and National Theatre in Budapest, and has been a soloist at the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, Bay Area Hungarian Heritage Festival, Golden Festival in New York, and Kárpátok 50th Anniversary Gala in Los Angeles. 

 

Praised by the New York Times for this "outrageous fiddling", Matthew Szemela has toured the US, Europe, and Asia extensively, and appeared with artists as diverse as Sting, Susan Sarandon, Beyoncé Knowles, and Olivia Newton John. 

 

Cellist Misha Khalikulov, originally from Uzbekistan and raised in San Francisco, has toured 27 countries with his passionate, dynamic performances.
