Ensemble Polaris is a unique group founded to explore the 'idea of North' in music. Group members are expert performers from a variety of musical traditions and backgrounds. The resulting music has an eclectic palette of musical influences, colours, and techniques - early, folk, Klezmer, Hot Club of Paris, middle Eastern and southeast Asian, traditional Scandinavian, Celtic, Cape Breton, eastern European, classical, improvisatory, and avant-garde. It defies classification!
