Meden Glas (meaning “sweet as honey” or conversely, “a “silvery, metallic timbre”)
is a Toronto-based band and project that joins like-minded singer-instrumentalists who share a passion for ear-bending sounds and grassroots music from the Balkans (Bulgaria, Macedonia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Albania, Greece, and Turkey) in addition to peripheral musical cultures (Italian, Russian, Kurdish, Iranian, and Romani ). Drawing from solid musical expertise tied to their own individual ethnicity and a strong commitment to extensive research and intensive study of other musical cultures, Meden Glas members have captivated audiences with their mastery of diverse vocal styles that project with chilling resonance, soulful sweetness, and microtonal affect.
