Melos Folk Ensemble brings together some of Winnipeg’s finest singers, dancers, and musicians. Founded in 2006, it was the vision of a few to start a group that was self-contained, encompassed all of the elements of music, song, and dance, and one that was willing to embrace all areas of artistic creativity.
Unique and refreshing, Melos integrates the artistry of music, song, and dance to perform a wide range of works including traditional and contemporary Ukrainian and other folk music, as part of the Canadian multi-cultural experience.
With the belief that music, song, and dance, can touch the very spirit of the body and soul, Melos has had the privilege to perform to a vast array of audiences of varying backgrounds, as well as being able to perform at some truly interesting places. Whether mid-field at a football game, or ice level during a national sporting event, the Ensemble has won the hearts of many of its audiences. To date some of the venues that Melos has performed include professional sporting events, churches, community clubs, school functions, University faculty events, professional and corporate functions, nursing and personal care homes, weddings, banquets, and a variety of concerts and multi-cultural events.
Through progressive and an embracing spirt of artistic expressions, Melos continues to move forward with a renewed and energized resolve and purpose. The Ensemble feels truly humbled and blessed to continue to have the privilege of promoting Ukrainian culture through creation, development, and celebration…the experience known as Melos Folk Ensemble.Book Now!
