Fleur. Prikosnoveniye. /digi-pack/. (A touch)
  Елена , Москва
17-09-2007 08:32

Диск просто волшебный. Название как нельзя точно передает атмосферу альбома - прикосновение к чарующей вселенной Флер. Любимые песни - "Колыбельная для Солнца" и "Уходи, февраль". С них, собственно, началось мое "прикосновение".


"Bozhychi" folk ensemble. Sho z Kyjeva ta j do Rusalyma. Kolyada songs. (From Kyiv to Jerusalem)
  , Perkinsville

I feel this may be a prime example of simple, country folk singing - especially when I hear sheep bleating in the background at the beginning of one track, adding to its charm. I am not especially fond of the loud singing by female singers which is nearly shouted. This CD is not one of my favorites, but still is interesting in its palette of a wide variety of folk songs.


Ivan Kozlovs'kyj. Chorni brovy, kari ochi. Ukrainian folk songs. P.2.
  , Perkinsville, USA
16-09-2007 01:46

An OK CD but not one of my favorites. Too much sliding of note/phrases and some tracks are speaking, not singing. Perhaps if I understood Ukrainian I would enjoy the spoken tracks which appear to have much feeling. I would not buy another CD of this artist.


Alexandr Malinin. Chervona kalyna.
  , Perkinsville, USA
16-09-2007 01:43

A fantastic Russian tenor singer of Ukrainian music some of which which sets the feet tapping and makes the heart happy (even though I do not understand the language). Other tracks are filled with emotion and feeling which shows in his singing, as though it comes from his deep inner being and making it a delight to hear. There is nothing mediocre about this fine artist even though there is some sliding of notes. This CD will be enjoyed for a very long time.


Mykola Shopsha. Nevmyruscha pisnya. (Immortal Song)
  , Perkinsville, USA
16-09-2007 01:05

This cd of bass singer Mykola Shopsha is wonderful for anyone who loves to listen to the bass voice as much as I do. It is not heavy but melodic with much expression and perfection. Mykola's is not the deepest bass voice I have heard, but is very impressive in it's delivery of beautiful Ukrainian music. A true delight to the ear, even though I do not understand the language. A delectable range of music which is a delight.


The Best of Ukrainian Folklore. International Festival of Ukrainian Music and Song "Gorytsvit". (DVD).
  , Perkinsville, USA
15-09-2007 23:02

This is a wonderful DVD of Ukrainian folk music with beautiful scenery, since it was filmed in the rural country side. Again, this part of the Ukraine looks astonishingly like my own native New England State of Vermont. Although I do not understand Ukrainian the music and photography is more than enough for me. For anyone who loves the folk music of the Ukraine it is a wonderful CD. It will be enjoyed for a very long time.


Vitaly Bilonozhko. Davayte razom zaspivayem, brattya!
  , Одеса, Найкраща країна

Дуже гарний альбом! Якщо вам є що згадати, ви сповнені любові
до рідної землі і вам не байдужа мила Україна - то ці пісні для вас.
Дякую тобі Віталію за справжю національну свідомість!


Kvitka (Kasey) Cisyk. Two Colors.
  , Brisbane, Australia
15-09-2007 18:58

The loss of such a talented voice is not to be replaced easily. I have both CD's and they are regarded as two of the best in my collection.The breadth of her voice is amazing, with youthfullness and maturity combined.You can hear the young girl singing and also the mature mother within, with wisdom and tolerance.Never may these cd's stop being played.


Mandry. Doroha. (Road)
  , Brisbane, Australia
15-09-2007 18:48

Top stuff! Doroha sounds like you are on a road and the clarity of voice makes the difference.Ukrainian singers are known for clear singing which makes it worth listening to.Another CD being worn out in the car whilst driving around at work.
Let's hope the boys decide to release more English speaking versions so the rest of the world can hear them.


Ani Lorak. Rozkazhy... (Tell me...)
  , Brisbane, Australia
15-09-2007 18:41

I have to agree with all of you, specialy, Fr@nky.Man! you said it all.Have nearly worn out the CD playing it in the car.Such a cheeky teenage sounding voice should be registered and released with a warning note."May cause delusions of romantic enhancement,use with care" My apprentices want to emigrate to Ukraine after seeing the cover photo and hearing her sing.
What is important ,above all else, is the clear crisp voice and presentation.You can actually understand what she is singing about.

Диск ОЧЕНЬ классный, даже если кто НЕ любит классику, все равно рекомендую впечатление обещаю. Я был сам на этом концерте, но после концерта очень долго ждал диск и вот дождался, смотрю ДИСК по 5 раз на день!


Innesa. Gerdan. New sound of ethnic Ukraine.
  , Houston, TX, USA
12-09-2007 18:34

Love it! Melodic, majestic, and expressive. A new spin on violin music. Usually attempts to combine traditional string instruments with electonic music fail miserably, but not so with this CD. After listening to the song samples, I knew I had to have it. Now that I have received it, I cannot stop listening to it. Quite a performance.


Folk group "Vesnyanka". Oj, zahraly muzychen'ky.
  , Perkinsville, USA

Is it possible to feel at home in a country you have never visited? This CD with its folk music of the Ukraine makes me feel that way. Some of the tracks are the type of music played at our rural country folk dances with fiddle playing. One track sounds like a calliope (a steam driven music maker which plays music on whistles and/or piano/organ keys within the machine). A true delight! The music is ideal for dancing and sets the feet tapping and making a happy heart. If you want to be filled with joy, I highly recommend this CD.


Ensemble of classic singing "Voices of Ukraine". Muzykа molytv. (Music of praying)
  , Perkinsville, USA
11-09-2007 17:33

Accolades to this professional and wonderful choir who sing Ukrainian Church music at its finest. The acoustics of the Eastern European Churches are incredible, making the singing ethereal as though it is coming directly from Heaven. It is like nothing I have ever heard in the USA. It is one of my favorites for this kind of singing. As always, I am in absolute awe of the a cappella singing of the beautiful music of the Church. If anyone is stressed out, this will bring peace and quiet to the spirit and soul.


Folk-show group "Ukrainian vechornytsi". Ukrajina – ljubov moja. (Ukraine – My Love)
  , Perkinsville, USA
11-09-2007 16:54

WOW! This CD is a treasure and recommended to anyone who loves Ukrainian folk music. The Ukraine has so many diverse folk instruments it is interesting to learn of their origins and use. I had to research the kobza since I was not familiar with it. Similar to the mandolin, it's roots in the Ukraine go back to the 1300's, and similar instruments may have been used in as early as 500. It was traditionally used by a bard or minstrel. There is a diversity of music from lively folk, to quieter tracks all are done professionally giving much enjoyment to the listener. This CD will be enjoyed for many years to come.
