About The Hoppa Project
Hoppa Project aims to promote music from Eastern Europe and the Middle East by performing the music of the region with a wide range of styles from folk to newly commissioned contemporary music. Hoppa is an exclamation that is commonly used in the region to say “Come on! Let’s go!” The project brings western and eastern trained musicians together in order to discover cultural connections. Their goal is to expose people to a culture they might not know well and to bring foreigners abroad back home with music.
