‘In truth it’s not how far afield we’re taken by Uncharted Waters that reflects Ensemble Polaris’ particular genius. It’s how the group leads us to re-discover what we’ve loved all along — a heartbreaking melody, a snappy dance beat — in the guise of some unexpected form.’ Peter Goddard, The Toronto Star
Welcome to the online home for Ensemble Polaris. We’ve been called ‘Arctic fusion’ and ‘an exhilarating fusion of world, classical and folk,’ we’ve also been called ‘Bonkers but brilliant!’ Based in Toronto, we create music using a wide range of sounds, influences and processes. Check out the tracks on our Music page, watch a video or two, and find out more about us.
