Electric Earth Concerts kicks off its ninth season, presenting “Love Songs from Around the World,” with Bosnian-Dutch accordionist–composer Merima Kljuco and singer Jelena Milušić on Friday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Church in Jaffrey.

Series fans will remember Kljuco’s riveting performance of The Sarajevo Haggadah last year. And now for something completely different – she is joined by Milušić, her friend and colleague, in a performance of songs from their new album “Lume”, illustrating love’s many phases – from passion to despair – inspired by melodies from Sephardic, Croatian, Romanian and Kosovar music.

Ključo is a frequent guest soloist with orchestras including the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Holland Symphonia, and has worked with internationally renowned artists and ensembles such as Theodore Bikel, MusikFabrik and the Schönberg Ensemble.

Expressive and bold, Milušić is a singer who easily transforms her voice to the needs of various genres. Being fluent in different musical idioms ranging from blues, jazz, and rock to traditional Balkan and World music, she has performed in a wide variety of musical styles and settings.

Tickets are $30, and are available at http://electricearthconcerts.org or at the door. Students may attend for free for college students.
