The eclectic cultural richness of Ladom Ensemble’s music is a reflection of our country’s cultural diversity. They share a passion for creating a sound that draws from their unique musical experiences, a sound that incorporates inspirations from Argentinian jazz, classical tango, Serbian folk dance, Persian classical dulcimer, amongst others. The group was formed, not to define or represent one specific tradition, but rather, to express what is a modern and authentic Canadian experience – a musical identity blossoming from many sources that reflect a beautiful new world. This elasticity of styles is their musical foundation. With their vast experiences, Ladom creates a new sound and experience that will appeal to all audiences.

The newest member of the ensemble, Michael Bridge, is lauded as “a wizard of the accordion.” Named one of CBC’s “30 Hot Classical Musicians Under 30,” Bridge purchased his first accordion at a garage sale for $5 when he was five-years-old, and two decades later, he’s redefining the perception of his traditional instrument.
