Traditional Wedding Music of Ukrainians. Music Heritage of Ukraine.
It is not a secret, especially for our constant visitors, that in Poltava region musical tradition has been preserved a little bit better than in any other region of Ukraine. It also concerns ceremonies and rites, in his particular case it concerns a wedding ceremony. In our time a wedding party is as a rule the case of several hours, if not minutes. Many yeas ago wedding festivities lasted several days. It is quite understandable that such an event could not take place without dancing and singing. This disc contains musical compositions that accompanied the key events of the ceremony – arrival of bridesmen and bridesmaids to the house of a bride, arrival of a bridegroom, dressing up of a bride, leading of a bride and a bridegroom to the altar. There are also dramatic moments here, such as unplaiting or parting of a bride with her family. Still, a certain period of time passes between the events, and this time should be filled in as well, that’s why the disc contains ballads, jokes and dances. Thus, the disc gives the listener a chance to gain the entire insight of a traditional Ukrainian wedding party – the way it used to be in Poltava region in old times. Especially since the performance here is authentic.

"Drevo", female ensemble from the Kryachkivka village. Bahatoholossja. (live). /mini-pack/. (Polyphony)

One song, another one, and here it already seems that when performing they appear in some different dimension, fly up in sorrow and tranquility. Here the song fades, and in an instant the audience applauds sincerely - and these applauses seem to abruptly bring the women back on the scene. Possibly, too abruptly – and again they squint at the light, smile awkwardly. But in another moment a new song starts – and a new splash, new release in tranquility...

Kolo richky, kolo brodu. Music Heritage of Ukraine. /digi-pack/. (At a River, at a Ford)

Songs of the full year cycle are intertwined into the whole of the fabric – from winter holidays and up to the harvest time. They are mixed with lyric songs, ballads – but there are also a wedding and a cradle melody, and a few dancing ones. Thus, this disc does not set the purpose to recreate the vision of a specific rite or cycle.

Holosy mynuloho. Zhyvi perekazy Poltavschyny. Music Heritage of Ukraine. /digi-pack/. (Voices of the Past. Live Narratives of Poltavschina)

The album offers to the listener traditional Poltava music of various styles and epochs – without arrangements, in the pure form. Such recordings may grow almost impossible in a very close future. Thus, listen – and do not say that you did not see it.

Є такий гарний український мультфільм - Жив був пес... Нашій малечі він дуже подобається... І от якось ми із жінкою посперечалися, чи є пісня "Та косив батько, косив я" народною, чи ні... У всьому інтернеті я знайшов лише два посилання на цю пісню... Одне з них - на цьому сайті... Ми замовили диск та отримали просто чудову підбірку полісько-слобожанських українських пісень... Дуже рекомендую всім поціновувачам...
