agesDivi Zheni (Wild Women) is an all-female chorus and orchestra who perform truly authentic Bulgarian  folk songs either a capella or accompanied by ethnic instruments such as the tambura, dumbek, and tupan. Members of this group come from all backgrounds and range in age from young to old.  Their repertoire includes both village and more popular dance songs which they perform at individual concerts, festivals and dance events. Founded in 2000, they not only appear locally, but nationally and overseas in Bulgaria as well.

The ensemble is directed by internationally renowned Bulgarian folk artist Tatiana Sarbinska. As a recipient of the prestigious honor of National Treasure status, compliments of the Bulgarian government, she is recognized as instrumental in the preservation of her country’s native music culture. Thus, it is under her tutelage that Divi Zheni is able to perform successfully in the  true Bulgarian folk style.  She has had and still enjoys an illustrious career as a vocalist and has recorded her own cds Makedonsko Devojche  and Katerino Mome.  Since 1991, she has shared her numerous talents in the United States through the direction of various ensembles, music events, and workshops.

I would also like to introduce here the ensemble Zornitsa, the male counterpart to Divi Zheni.

In addition to appearances at folk music events around the New England area, they have also performed in Bulgaria where they were aired on Bulgarian National television.
