Check out my ongoing Toronto based music projects.
Polky Village Band
"Valiant and cheerful"
Created by two courageous ladies from Poland, singer Ewelina Ferenc and dancer Ala Stasiuk, Polky Village Band is not a typical "polka band" but an authentic, energetic Polish-Canadian folk music group. The band performs traditional songs and dances that Ewelina and Ala learned while growing up back home, and now they share them with incredible Canadian musicians & friends they acquired in Toronto! They present music and traditional instruments currently reviving on the Polish music scene and create their own unique sound by adding Canadian and multicultural flavor!
“Beauty – in the voices, the look, and the sounds”
- Global Roots Canada.
Blisk is an all-female synthesis of polyphonic Balkan and Slavic song, dance and movement backed by hypnotic percussion. Experience a musical journey through Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia, Ukraine, Poland, Russia and beyond.
The members of the group, all residents of Toronto, hail from Poland, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, made their public debut in December 2017 at the Aga Khan Museum alongside JUNO-nominated Turkwaz.
Eastern European Wedding Band
“You made the wedding a memorable one. Too much fun. Our 93 year old grandmother was so moved she was dancing up a storm to your amazing music” - Darcy Rutkay
Would you like to hire an Eastern - European wedding folk band for your reception? Nothing more simple than that! I cooperate with many professional musicians in Toronto and my band and I can move to dance even those with two left feet!
