Da! Mozhem and the Nema Problema Chorale is a group of friends who have been playing together for well over a decade. The chorale consists of up to eight women, joined occasionally by male voices. The group has veterans from many excellent folklore bands such as the People's International Sliver String Macedonian Band, Born to Drone, Westwind and the Slavonian Traveling Band. The band plays pan-Balkan music with an emphasis on Bulgarian, Macedonian and Ex-Yugoslav traditions. Several members frequently travel to the Balkans to learn more about the folkloric music of the region. The group has several native language singers and plays on traditional instruments unique to the region as well as modern instruments.
