Ihtimanska is a Montreal based duo of saxophone (Ariane Morin) and accordion (Yoni Kaston) playing creative takes on traditional and classical Turkish and Bulgarian music from a wide cross section of the repertoire. Complex Bulgarian choral arrangements and funky-metered dance tunes, music from Ottoman courts and Sufi ceremony, and centuries old protest songs from repressed villages, with a complicity and sweetness.

Ihtimanska has performed in North-America and Istanbul, acclaimed by respected ethnomusicologists such as Yves Moreau and Zev Feldman, and were the proud recipients of the prize "Coup de Coeur" by Place des Arts and Vision Diversité at the Vitrine de la Musique Locale Métissé in 2015.
