This a great cd. The fusion of the music with their poetry is the best ever. . The music itself is innovative and driving. This is clearly one of their best.albums.I recommend it enthusiastically.

Музыка хорошая. Лично для меня стали открытием англоязычные песни. никогда их не слушал раньше (хотя и знал о существовании такой группы). Теперь же вижу - очень достойное прошлое, отличоне настоящее и наверное лучезарное будущее. Всем, кто ценит радость и хорошее настроение рекомендую. Надія Є.

This cd has some very fine pieces and the singing is quite powerful . The dynamics of the choir (when they sing softly , is quite heavenly) what i would like to hear is a more powerful sound especially from the sopranos and basses. This cd had the potential to be something special in my humble opinion .
Looking forward to future cds from this excellent choir .

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".

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
