Toronto’s own Polky was created by courageous Polish women, singer Ewelina Ferenc, dancer Ala Stasiuk, and multi-instrumentalist Marta Solek. Polky, meaning “Polish women,” came together through a shared passion for Eastern European music’s enigmatic and upbeat style. Joined by Canadian musicians, Polky brings its original sound to Eastern European traditional musical forms by adding a uniquely Canadian and multicultural flavour. Polky will help us to honour the brave people of the Ukraine, putting their lives on the line to protect the basic democratic rights and values we take for granted here in Canada. We stand with Ukraine.
