Polkas.nl presents The Best Of Cilka Dolgan

 

Cilka Dolgan has been a major contributor to the music as a singer, lyricist, and composer. Her Best Of CD features 19 polkas & waltzes in Slovenian & Cleveland-Style. This entire album is full of Cilka's bestsellers including Save The Last Dance, Happy Accordeon, Who's Who Polka, Friends Polka, Tavern In The Valley and Polka Dance.

 

Cilka developed her mellow alto voice while singing at the Cleveland Institute of Music and with the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra chorus.  She has been the recipient of many honors, becoming the first living woman to be named to the Polka Hall of Fame for lifetime polka achievement in 1990, and the Penn-Ohio Polka Person of the Year in 2011.  Cleveland Magazine named her one of the city's most interesting people in 1988. Cilka was inducted into the Collinwood High School Hall of Fame 2002. She was president of the National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame for twelve years.

 

Her translations of more than 60 Slovenian songs into English enhanced the polka in America and her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.  Cilka's lyrics are included on six songs that were voted as Greatest All-Time Hits by the National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame.  

Fans appreciate the words she wrote for Back Home to Pennsylvania, I'll Wait for You, Save the Last Dance, Hey, Prijatelj, the Happy Accordion, Roses of Love, Friends Polka, Darling Who Will Ever Love You, and Beautiful Slovenia.  These songs were readily adopted by many polka bands across the country.  Cilka's singing has been featured on ten albums, with accompaniment by such polka stars as the Almars, the Second Generation, Fred Ziwich International Sound Machine and the Sumradas.  She wrote the words and music for the Polka Dance, Slovenian Country House Polka, Who's Who Polka, and Zeke and Charlie Polka. First time on CD.
