Lemon Bucket Orkestra are Toronto's original guerrilla-folk party-punk massive. The multi-award-winning ensemble has been heralded as a groundbreaking, genre-bending phenomenon by media and fans alike, and over the past 13 years they have performed all over the world from WOMAD in New Zealand and Pohoda in Slovakia, to Festival D’Été in Québec City, and Luminato in Toronto. The Guardian proclaimed that their performances are "gorgeously sung and passionately played" and The New York Times declared them "charismatic...handsome and ambitious.”

Equal parts exhilarating precision and reckless abandon, LBO’s live shows are a truly immersive experience ranging from the ecstatic to the cathartic and all points in between. Now they have been weaving that unique blend of energy and emotion onto their upcoming album Cuckoo. Set for release in May 2024, the new record pens strong lines through powerful Ukrainian polyphony, driving Balkan rhythms, and a deep undertone of modern Western sensibilities. This mixture of Eastern Europe and the America's is further elevated with the special feature of Macedonian master trumpeter, hailing from Kocani Orkestar, Nizo Alimov.
