Glas plays the soulful roots music of Macedonia. Off-kilter rhythms, unexpected harmonies, and intricate ornaments come together in a tradition born in an older way of living, when life was lived close to the bone. Songs sprang up around the table and in the fields, with friends and family, at work and at play, and told stories of life lived in hardship. Working as an acoustic duo based in Brooklyn, Vedran Boshkovski and Corinna Snyder create an intimate setting for audiences to connect to vivacious, poignant music from another place and time.
