Following our June 20-22 world premiere performances, Kitka recorded I will remember everything. Now we are pleased to release the album!

“Holiness that is earthy, exotic. This is the vocal power of the women of Kitka, a mesmerizing choral ensemble. With Wintersongs, Kitka taps into something primal and dramatic.”

“Kitka immerses us in the passion and celebration at the root of all earth-centered culture.”
