Yana Nikol

Expanding upon her extensive classical training, Bulgarian flutist, arranger and composer Yana Nikol passionately embraces the diverse folk music styles of different cultures. Yana is an active freelance musician in the Washington D.C. area sharing her musical prowess as a participant in various projects and ensembles that incorporate a vast array of musical genres. In 2018 Yana created Project Locrea – a musical alliance with varying instrumentation that introduces audiences to the different musical traditions of the world seen through the lenses of artistic creativity. Combining traditional instruments (Chinese dulcimer, Peruvian flutes) with western classical (flute, guitar) and jazz instruments (bass, drums), the project’s focus is on bringing better understanding and deeper connection between cultures.

Cristian Perez

With a strong foundation in classical, jazz and South American music, Argentine guitarist/composer Cristian Perez crafts a singular voice, rich in sensitivity and nuance, that freely explores the possibilities of music as an art form. His debut album “Anima Mundi” has received numerous reviews throughout the world (Italy, Australia, Russia, Germany, Bolivia, South Korea, etc.), and reached #13 in the CMJ World Music charts in the USA. Former Artist in Residence at Strathmore Music Center, Cristian has been featured on Vintage Guitar Magazine. His music has taken him to China, Canada, Dominican Republic, Bulgaria, South Korea, Bolivia, and he continues to be in high demand with a busy performing schedule.
