Ludy Dobri

Ludy Dobri (Good People) is a Lviv-based nu-folk band that collects and interprets traditional music from across Ukraine according to their eclectic tastes. Last summer they visited Toronto as part of the Organic Streetscape Project, a Canadian tour based around a collaboration between Canadian and Ukrainian musicians and artists that included exhibits and shows in several cities.
Stephanie Turenko had the opportunity to follow the band and document their experiences in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. The band loved playing in Kensingtom Market and was also able to play at the Gladstone hotel during Nuite Blanche and the Bloor Street West Ukrainian Festival.
