A synthesis of polyphonic Eastern European song, dance, and movement backed by hypnotic percussion, Blisk is a musical journey through Ukraine, Poland, Russia, the Balkans – and beyond. Described as “beauty – in the voices, the look, and the sounds,” by Roots Music Canada, the Toronto-based, all-female quartet was brought together by a deep love and respect for the ancient songs and dances of these regions, bringing the tunes to life for our modern world through unique original compositions, storytelling, dance, and distinctive arrangements of traditional folk music.
