BalaklavaBlues-383.png

"Balaklava Blues is a musical meditation of hope against the backdrop of Ukraine's chaos...
an earnest and engaging reflection on post traumatic stress and the attempts we make to move forward."

- CBC ARTS

"It’s a set of stark contradictions to spark your mind and move your feet; creators Mark and Marichka Marczyk
sing seemingly carefree melodies to poppy techno beats worthy of PC Music, as startling visuals of missiles being loaded
and machine guns being fired are projected behind them. Opposites attract in this set as jarring subtitles like, “this is not your place,
you can only stay here temporarily” are over-layed on top of colourful Soviet cartoons as techno beats build to a crescendo." 

- LATITUDE LATITUDE 2018 - THURSDAY REVIEW

Mark and Marichka Marczyk are the recipients of two Dora Awards, a Scotsman
Edinburgh Fringe First Award, and an Amnesty International Freedom of Speech Award.
