In 2007 Mosaica was formed in a coffee house in Maplewood, Minnesota when a core group of musicians accepted the challenge of putting together a playlist that covered all genres of music from Eastern European to Old Time to the popular standards and ballads of today. For the next 7 years Mosaica has developed its unique sound and repertoire.
Mosaica has performed at various festivals and venues including the Festival of Nations in St. Paul, Hobgoblin Music in Red Wing, Smaczne Jablka (Apple Fest) in Winona, Coventry Chapel in Saint Paul and the Polish American Cultural Institute of Minnesota annual Soup Festival.
Mosaica intends to feed your curiosity for music of the world. We perform this music because all of us love the respective songs in our repertoire. Out of all the possible origins of the numerous songs we perform, they all share one common origin, the heart. For more information, view their website at http://www.mosaicamusic.com/.
