The Berkeley-based group Kitka sings folk songs from Eastern Europe, Russia, Georgia, and the Ukraine

If you liked the last two Something Completelies, I think you'll love this one. Another threesome: Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir, with a great collection of spirituals, folk songs and musical cries of freedom; Kitka, a group that started in Berkeley some years ago, singing wonderful songs from Hungary, Bulgaria, Georgia (not the one with Atlanta in it), Russia (will this get me in trouble?), the Ukraine and like that; and Zap Mama, with Iko Iko, Poetry Man, and guests like Erykah Badu, and Meshell Ndegeocello. This is one you'll remember for some time to come.

And just wait for the October 18th show, with songs about...guns!
