BIO

Katerina García is a Czech-Spanish singer born in Prague, raised in Barcelona and currently living in Dublin, Ireland. Katerina began to sing Irish traditional music in the band Celtic Rej, in 1997. In 1998 she co-founded the Prague-based band Dún an Doras, where she performed until 2007 and with which she recorded the albums Bossa Nudski (Mars Productions, 1999), Demo 2002, Sweet & Sour (Indies, 2003) and Rua (Indies, 2005).  

Since 2001 she has been collaborating with multi-instrumentalist and renowned banjo player Lubos Malina in the band Garcia – both their albums released to-date, Woven Ways (Supraphon, 2007) and Before Dawn (Indies Happy Trails, 2010) were nominated for the Czech Anděl music awards. She has also collaborated with numerous musicians across various genres (Czech bluegrass band Druhá tráva, Malina Brothers, Czech singer Pavel Bobek, American producer and guitarist Steve Walsh, Irish traditional musicians Alan Doherty and James Ryan, and the Dublin-based Traditional Arts Collective, among others). In 2006 she founded, together with her sister Barbara García and Bosnian singer and guitarist Predrag Duronjič, the band Kal y Kanto, where she performed Sephardic and Balkan traditional music. In the years 2013 - 2019 she performed this repertoire with the band Kon Sira. In 2021 she released the album Vprostřed noci... (In the Deep of Night) in collaboration with Luboš Malina and Steve Walsh (production). The album is a cycle of 10 musical compositions based on poems written mainly by Czech poet Věra Provazníková.  

Katerina currently lectures in the Department of Hispanic Studies at Trinity College Dublin.

KATEŘINA GARCÍA & BAND

KATERINA GARCÍA & BAND

As a culturally and linguistically mixed collective of musicians, we perform songs from the traditions of the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, that is, the Iberian Peninsula and the Judeo-Spanish song tradition of the Balkan Peninsula and Turkey, as well as from Central Europe, specifically Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia. All these song traditions are further combined and enriched by elements and influences from Irish traditional music, and ultimately woven into a colourful musical tapestry, where the cultural and artistic backgrounds of each of our collective’s members are represented. Come and join us on our musical journey across the European continent.
