Nadia Tarnawsky has been studying Eastern European singing techniques for nearly two decades. In 2002 she received a Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship, which allowed her to travel to Ukraine to collect folk songs and folklore. Since 2008, she has been teaching Ukrainian village style singing in workshops for the Center for Traditional Music and Dance in NYC. In 2011, she sang under the tutelage of Yevgeny Yefremov with Ensemble Hilka of New York in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine. Upon moving to Seattle, she and Brandon Vance formed the band Alchymeia. In 2013, Nadia co-created a dance-theater piece with Jenna Bean Veatch entitled 50 Heartbreaks and I'm Still in Love with Youkraine, which premiered at Annex Theater and was also performed at the New Orleans Fringe Festival.
