We are Polky Village Band

Polky Village Band performs authentic energetic folk songs from various regions of Poland.

Ewelina Ferenc is a singer and ethnomusicologist originally from Katowice, Poland, who's travelling spirit unexpectedly brought her music and voice to Canada in 2015.
Moreover she came for 2 weeks and stayed for 2 years for music and love which made Canada her new home. 
And this is how the Polky Village Band's story began ;)

Here, she met professional Polish dancer and choreographer Ala Stasiuk, originally from Zielona Gòra. Together they were eager to share the music they learned growing up in Poland with some incredible Canadian musicians & friends they acquired in Toronto.


The band performs and teaches traditional dance workshops at numerous cultural events around the Great Toronto Area. 
Polky Village band is always ready to make you dance, even if you've got two left feet!
