ABOUT BLISK - https://www.bliskmusic.com/
"the beauty in the voices, the look, and the sounds"
- Roots Music Canada
BLISK is a musical journey travelling through Poland, Ukraine, Russia, the Balkans and beyond. This 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.
The bands original compositions are inspired by the places from which the members hail Poland, Ukraine, Russia/Kazakhstan, and Canada seamlessly intertwined and paired with traditional Eastern European repertoire that crosses cultural borders!
ABOUT ZLATNA MOUNTAIN
Zlatna Mountain musicians are from Vancouver, and share a love for Balkan music and dance. The name Zlatna Mountain means Gold Mountain, a term widely used by the Chinese immigrants who built the railroads in the late 19th century for the Gold Rush along the west coast of North America.
Zlatna Mountain's repertoire is from Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo, Bulgaria, and Bosnia Herzegovina. Zlatna Mountain showcases a variety of time signatures and harmonic structures. Note that the narrators of the stories are often animals and natural features. In these songs one can hear stories from a jaybird, a falcon, and a mountain. Listening to Zlatna Mountain can transport you to a fog-covered plain, a grape vineyard, a beautiful private garden, and [of course] mountains!
