Ukrainian Roots Music in Canada

Zabava is the Ukrainian word for dance party. In the 1980s a style of music known as zabava was developed by the bands that played these events. Fast polkas with a driving beat often incorporated elements of polka music from other cultures. The most popular of these groups was the Toronto band Burya led by accordionist Ron Cahute.
