May 27
Baba's Lounge

Kitchen OrkestraToronto/Halifax folk ensemble, Kitchen Orkestra, will make their debut at Baba's Lounge on May 27 at 8:30 pm.

Influenced by tastes of Celtic, Bluegrass, Balkan, Latin music, and other world folk traditions, Kitchen Orkestra engages audiences with interactive folk arrangements and lively original music. With their dynamic mix of fiddle, mandolin, vocals, upright bass, cajon, and global percussion, these four musicians enjoy testing the creative possibilities of their instruments, and combining them artfully, cooking thoughtful blends of grooves, textures, instrumental melodies, and voice. 

This quirky Canadian folk quartet released their first album, Entrée, in April 2017, as a heartfelt snapshot of the music they had been creating and performing in the year prior to the recording's release. Entrée showcases Kitchen Orkestra's ability to cast strong flavours and vivid stories into musical moods, ranging from danceable to contemplative to cinematic. 

The name Kitchen Orkestra is a combination of “Kitchen” (a creative space for tasty experimentation and fun) and “Orkestra” (a word for musical ensembles or “Orchestras” in many cultures and a title used by many Balkan music ensembles whose celebratory music influence some of our arrangements). Bandleader Hayley Ryerson first named the ensemble, when stirred by the energy and concept of “The Kitchen Party”, a Canadian Maritime tradition featuring music, food, conversation, and celebration.
