cd coverPanacea is an eclectic blend of five of the San Francisco Bay area's most individual and sought after musicians. With a myriad of successful music careers between them, these five dynamic performers have joined their unique and diverse talents to form what is being called a wildly playful ensemble. Santuri player Robin Petrie has recorded and toured extensively, playing and singing Celtic and European folk music. Nicole LeCorgne specializes in Middle Eastern and Balkan percussion. Bon Brown Singer is well known as a vocalist and the original artistic director of the Kitka women's chorus. Shira Kammen tours here and abroad as a medieval and early music vocalist and instrumentalist. Accordionist Nada Lewis has led several renowned Balkan and klezmer ensembles in the Bay area. Together their repertoire is as diverse as their experience, with music that travels from Finland to Israel and spends quite a bit of time in the Balkans along the way.
