The Pletenitsa Balkan Choir was founded by Christiane Karam in 2011, as a means to explore the choral traditions and folk music adaptations of the Balkans, the Middle East, the Caucasus, as well as parts of the Mediterranean. It is primarily a women's chorus with some arrangements that incorporate male singers as well. It includes and welcomes singers from all over the world, and serves as a platform for cultural exchange, and an opportunity to come together and celebrate the beauty and spirit that connects us all. The Pletenitsa choir has performed to rave reviews in Boston and New York and has shared the stage with the likes of Zulal, Juliana Svetlichnya, Mario Frangoulis,  José Mercé, Javier Limon, Binka Dobreva and Tigran Hamasyan.
