EVA SALINA & PETER STAN are a small and mighty duo of accordion & voice, traveling through Vintage Pop sounds of Balkan Roma communities.
Together, they present soulful, expressive and intimate performances full to the brim with stories, history, insight, humor, melancholy and friendship. Amplifying voices of past generations of Romani women musicians while evolving living traditions, Eva & Peter employ tenderness, grace, and passion to keep Balkan Romani (gypsy) music vital and relevant for a new generation.

At GARNER Arts, this intimacy, passion and tenderness will be accompanied by a tea service, site-specific projections and a market of traditional textiles, jewelries and accessories, all curated in collaboration with Eva.
"...darkly glorious, an exploration of what it means to honor the past without glossing over the melancholy truths of it...Stripped-down arrangements of each song allow for a far more effective demonstration of strength than anything lusher likely would...” PopMatters
"...a radical shift...spare, rivetingly intimate reinvention..." New York Music Daily
“Music that delivers emotion in abundance despite, or perhaps because of, the fact that only vocal and accordion power it...a perfect symbiosis, with Salina’s voice moving easily from playful to poignant and Stan’s full mastery of the squeezebox enabling him to enhance every note and nuance while snaking his way through subtle variations on the melodies...glorious…” Roots World
