Performer of the Week: Yitka Karlik

Born in the Czech Republic, Yitka Karlik has been playing in groups since the age of 16 and joined a professional band in Prague at 18. She immigrated to Canada in 1991.

Later, her adopted country got a taste of Yitka's musical talents. Her CD, Contradiction was nominated for a 2007 Hamilton Music Award (Folk/Traditional).

Yitka's enchanting work contains both modern folk/pop sensibilities and an old-world style sound. Her accent also adds to the exotic flavour.

You'll be able to hear her unique talents soon as she'll be visiting the Pearl Company on Nov. 13, 2009. Her CD is available at Dr. Disc, Cheapies, Crash Landing, Looney Tunes, and can be purchased online on CDBaby
