First Vasyl Zhdankin was heard great in 1989 while he had got The GP on the first festival “Chervona Ruta”. However, nothing has been heard about him for the latest 10 years. Thus, as for me it is for the first time while I hear about him. Moreover, you know this voice sounding explains why people have been waiting on his return through so many years. It’s for sure have to be waited on, because this bass voice has not only powerful force, it’s only pleasant timbre. The huge dramatic profundity, the capability to be either stern and strong or smooth, tender and limpid. It is the voice of a soldier who has nothing to loose except the last life battle. And the father’s voice who lull the baby at night. And a voice of a man who can work and gets a real joy working and shares with this happiness. There is a man’s nature in his sounding. Without it as well as without the woman’s nature the harmony is impossible. There are voices that cannot be called simply instruments. They are the personification of something more. They are not so many. And it’s seems that Vasyl Zhdankin voice is one of them.
