Presented by Lula Music and Arts Centre & Small World Music

Critics have described the work of Halyna and Lesia Telnyuk as “a breath of fresh air,” “a tonic against despair,” and “the last bastion of true poetry and music in the domain of the contemporary Ukrainian song.” Straddling jazz and classical, the work explores issues such as the place of the poet in totalitarian society, the idea of internal freedom as a prerequisite for creativity, the search for oneself and for a sense of being.

For more than fifteen years, Canadian Ukranian painter Ihor Polishchuk has been producing work inspired by the work of the Telnyuk sisters. Polishchuk’ work will enrich and reveal further depths to the poetry of this performance.

Featuring vocalist Stacey Yerofeyeva, DoVira fuses the roots Ukrainian musical heritage with western styles such as jazz, rock, and electronic music.

Sponsored by Dr. O.K.

Dinner Menu

Lula's culinary team has created a distinctive menu that like Lula itself, is decidedly international with a Latin soul that shines through in everything we do. Check out Lula's new tropical fusion menu.


Lulaworld 2013 - Lula's Latin Soul

May 10 to 31: 16 Concerts! 5 CD Releases! More than 120 artists representing more than a dozen countries.

Each May, the annual LULAWORLD festival gives Lula Music and Arts Centre the opportunity to work with local artists to create special presentations that push our programming into new areas, to encourage first time collaborations and to include special guest artists from outside of Toronto as well as artists from musical cultures and genres that may not be represented at Lula on a weekly basis.

This year's festival opens with night of Ethiopian jazz and closes with an evening dedicated to the history of Brazilian samba with a special guest dancer / choreographer visiting from Brazil. Other projects featured in the festival include an evening that blends soul and world influences, a collaboration between international Ukrainian musicians with a local visual artist and an evening produced in conjunction with Jewish Music Week.

Although, our reach is wide, there's no denying that Lula was born with a Latin soul. When planning this year's festival, we looked at the latest projects by Toronto artists and were amazed by the depth, variety and caliber of the work being brought forth by Latin music communities over the last year. As a result, this year's festival includes many aspects and elements of Latin music as it blends with and informs other genres. This year's concerts (which include 5 CD releases!) will reveal the Latin soul as it is expressed joyfully through classical, hip hop, reggae, Afrobeat, Jewish music, jazz and straight-ahead salsa!

LULAWORLD is made possible by the support of the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council and the Ontario Arts Council as well as our sponsors CBC Radio, Toronto Hispano, Telelatino, Mill Street Brewery, Brazil Travel and Dr. O.K..

Lula Music and Arts Centre would like to thank its presenting partners: Tridha Arts Association, Batuki Music Society, Dos Mundos Arts and Media, Uma Nota, aluCine, Cuba in Toronto, United Soul and Solid Garage, Jewish Music Week in Toronto, Small World Music and Dance Migration.
