Blisk is a synthesis of polyphonic Eastern European and Balkan song, dance and movement backed by hypnotic percussion. Experience a musical journey travelling through Ukraine, Poland, Macedonia, Serbia and beyond. Based in Toronto, the members of the group hail from Canada, Ukraine, Poland and Kazakhstan and were brought together by a deep love and respect for these ancient songs and dances, bringing the tunes to life in the modern world. They made their public debut in December 2017 at the Aga Khan Museum opening for JUNO-nominated Turkwaz. They performed at the Toronto Ukrainian Festival, Sofar Sounds Toronto and the Global Toronto Conference.

Burdon (“bour-don” – drone) is a folk band from Lviv, in the west of Ukraine.

Olena Yeremenko – violin, nyckelharpa, vocal Oksana Hrynko – vocal, accordion Bohdana Bonchuk – vocal, gardon Mikhail Kachalov – fiddle Lubomyr Ishchuk – drums, percussion, winds Ivan Ohar – double bass Rost Tatomyr – bouzouki, vocal

The young musicians formed the group in 2002 and have quickly developed their music-making to an impressive level and built up a rich repertoire of traditional tunes, rural ritual songs, old ballads and cheerful dances.

Burdon’s repertoire is mostly based on traditional music from Ukraine and the mysterious Carpathian region, the crossroads of Romania, Hungary and Poland. Their spirited live performances combines an age-old tunes with modern arrangements, Nordic influences with Balkan grooves which altogether paint a vivid, dramatic world full of excitement, love, mystic and enchantment.

With all this multicultural mix Burdon creates its own unique sound with female vocals, fiddles, nickelharpa, bouzouki, gardon, double bass and crazy percussions. They have easily captured audiences around Ukraine or playing festivals in Poland, Hungary, Germany, Belgium, Skandinavia and Canada.

In 2015 the band won the main prize “Eiserner Eversteiner” of 24th annual international competition “FolkHerbst” in Germany. Musicians still experimenting with new instruments, new sounds and beautiful Ukrainian songs that form the basis of their music.
