Yuliyana Krivoshapkina at The Old Church 05/17/20
Yuliyana Krivoshapkina is a virtuoso performer, both in voice and with the khomus. The Khomus, an instrument of the Sakha Republic, is like the jew's harp but is loud and has a strikingly expansive range which Yuliyana can play across three octaves. In performance, she imitates the sounds of nature, birds and animals, drawing on the wisdom and traditions of the Yakut people to portray the timeless relationship between human peoples and the universe. Her costuming and stage presence is always fabulous!
