Marit Olivia (Viola, Violin) and Mae Kessler (Violin) have been playing folk and original music in bands locally and internationally for over 10 years.

In Varda, their latest project together, they craft captivating and lively duets of traditional Eastern European Jewish music (Klezmer) and traditional Scandinavian tunes.

It was their excitement to share this music with one another that sparked the formation of Varda, and they love being able to share their love of these rich musical traditions with audiences.
