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!”. This is the attitude we feel is needed to share what we love. Our goal is to expose people to a culture that they might not know well, and also bring foreigners abroad back home with music. Hoppa Project brings western and eastern trained musicians together in order to discover cultural connections.
