An International Christmas with Daria Kulesh

2548 2548 people viewed this event.

Christmas in January? Why not – join Daria Kulesh for a very international, multilingual performance full of twists, turns, quirky customs, bizarre facts, warm humour and a bit of practical magic associated with Orthodox Christmas. Mixing music and storytelling in a cauldron of playful theatricality, it’s a rather un-Orthodox celebration. Every year, this now traditional gathering at the Kitchen Garden Cafe is a little bit different, with surprises and special guests to keep you on your toes!

Daria Kulesh has been described by Mike Harding as “one of the finest voices and one of the most intriguing and interesting songwriters on the present folk scene”. Her debut release Eternal Child was described as “phenomenal”, her second album Long Lost Home has enjoyed rave reviews and multiple awards, including LCM Album of the Year, the third album Earthly Delights was named “one of the year’s finest albums” by Folk Radio UK, and her latest studio release EVE is “a terrific collection from the heart that reminds what a singular talent she is”, according to FATEA Magazine.

Daria has toured extensively in the UK and Europe, sharing stories and songs that are deeply personal but feel universal and timeless. Every performance is an “emotional, compelling and uplifiting experience”, leaving the audiences “completely spellbound”. Born in Russia but based in the UK for the last 15 years, she fearlessly explores her heritage and turbulent family history in Ingushetia (North Caucasus) with songs that “aren’t just sung, but lived”.

“Refreshingly different, powerful songwriting” (FolkWorld).
“Intensely personal and immensely resonant… incredibly moving” (TwickFolk).
“Haunting and enigmatic” (The Sunday Times).
