About this Event

BLISK is a synthesis of polyphonic Eastern European and Balkan song, dance and movement backed by hypnotic percussion. It is described as a musical journey traveling through Ukraine, Poland, Macedonia, Serbia and beyond. The group was brought together by a deep love and respect for these ancient songs and dances, bringing the tunes to life in the modern world through unique staging and arrangements.

Originally put together for multiple performances at the Toronto Ukrainian Festival in September 2017, Blisk made its official public debut in December of 2017 at the Aga Khan Museum opening for JUNO-nominated group Turkwaz. Since then, they have performed at Sofar Sounds Toronto, the Global Toronto Conference, Mundial Montreal, and SING! Toronto Vocal Arts Festival.

Roots Music Canada has described BLISK as “beauty – in the voices, the look, and the sounds.” Based in Toronto, the members of BLISK hail from Canada, Ukraine, Poland and Kazakhstan. We are excited to welcome their Old Country music here to Lions Bay!

Lions Bay House Concerts' Spring2Summer Series Lead Sponsor: Thyra McKilligan of Re/Max Masters has been a North Shore resident for over 25 years, but her specialty is Lions Bay.
