May be, it is really impossible to understand Ukrainian melos and Ukrainian music deeply if you have no examples for comparison. This disc is the fifth of the series of musical dialogues of Ukraine with other states performed by the Ensemble of Ancient Music of Kostyantyn Chechenya. Now we may hear, feel and compare in full. And we may find out that all that is one indivisible canvas. We may find out that melodies of different countries are similar to one another and at the same time they are different like children of the same parents. We may find out that the language is universal. The longer ago it was created, the deeper this universality is. And plainness for everybody irrespective of his nationality. In this sense I am not sure in pentathonics, but it is a bit different subject.
