Street Brass: Lemon Bucket Orkestra


Canada's only balkan-klezmer-gypsy-party-punk-super-band was born on the streets of Toronto as a 2010. The original quartet of guerrilla-folk troubadours quickly amassed a battalion of troops armed with brass and bows and started touring the world; they’ve since been nominated for several awards, heralded as ground-breaking by international media, and performed at festivals across the globe. Their greatest achievement might be their ability to embody the dynamic space between "home" and "exotic" and to welcome audiences into the celebration of that space.

The band has even gone as far as the eastern front of the war in Ukraine, using their music as catharsis, support and a platform for storytelling and information-sharing in a political arena obfuscated by propaganda and misinformation. Their most recent performance project, Counting Sheep, is an interactive video-music-theatre-dinner-play that tells the story of the Maidan Revolution through traditional central and eastern Ukrainian choral songs and welcomes audience members to feel what band-members Mark Marczyk and Marichka Kudriavtseva felt when the protests in Kyiv escalated and snipers opened fire just over a year ago.
