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 travelling 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, 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.
