About Ana Esterling:

Ana Everling is an artist who has spent her life focusing on the practice and performance of vocal music. Her passion lies within the heart of Romanian Folklore from Moldova. With her practice, she has developed a unique style that reflects a deep love for tradition and yet propels these folkloric sounds into a new dimension. Are we listening to jazz? Are we walking through a misty Romanian forest? Her storytelling and vision is one of a woman’s journey of studying music in art schools in Moldova to busking on the streets of Chicago and now sells out venues throughout the United States. One of her missions as a performer is to preserve a free form genre called “Doina” from disappearing. This effort lead her to be honored by the president of Moldova as she was given the title Artist Emerit for prodigious activity in culture, high professional mastery and substantial contribution to preserving and developing the spiritual values of Moldovan culture and promoting Moldova’s image abroad.
