Pioneers of the world music scene in Albuquerque, New Mexico, members of GODDESS OF ARNO have been performing, teaching & studying traditional Balkan & East European folk music for over 30 years.
The award-winning 6 piece ensemble accompanies dramatic solo and powerful multi-part vocals with traditional ethnic string and percussion instruments as well as violin, guitar, saxophone, accordion and electric bass. Goddess of Arno’s repertoire includes instrumentals and traditional songs from Albania, the former Yugoslavia, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey & Hungary (many in the Romani language and style). Goddess of Arno’smusicians love the exotic rhythms and scales, which the southern Balkans absorbed from the Ottoman Empire. The virtuosity of the Balkan and Roma musicians is the source of inspiration and study for the band’s improvisations, phrasing and ornamentation.
