Zrada’s sound originates equal parts in the fog-shrouded valleys of the Carpathians and the sweaty mosh-pits of Anthrax shows; however their music is mysterious and primal in a unique way. A folk-punk tour-de-force, their subversion of Eastern-European musical traditions, enigmatic imagery and raucous live shows are pushing Zrada to craft some of the most forward-thinking and captivating world music in Canada today. Based in Winnipeg since 2005, Zrada has been experimenting with the soundscapes of their ancestral Ukraine for over a decade. Striking vocal harmonies, powerful trumpet and violin melodies combine with jazz infused rhythms to create a wild and joyous dance floor experience.
