Medna Usta was formed in 1985 in Santa Cruz, California, by a group of women drawn together by their love of Bulgarian and Macedonian folk music. Singing and performing on traditional Bulgarian folk instruments, Medna Usta gained a loyal following during the late 1980s in Northern California. They are seasoned performers and have performed and taught at the Centrum International Festival in Port Townsend.
