I have known about Kitka for a long time. I am acquainted with Shira Cion, one of their members who's also their Executive Director, and I run into her frequently at non-profit gatherings. But up till recently I hadn't actually heard their music.
My new beau, Jeff, got to hear them this Summer Solstice at the Garden of Memory concert. I was playing in another ensemble at the same event so I wasn't able to go hear them. Jeff was blown away and bought me their new album Sanctuary as a present.
I have been listening to it regularly. It's vital, visceral, Goddessy choral music.
