Vasyl Zhdankin. Revelations. /digi-pack/
(item from the "Rare Discs" section)
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.

KRUT. Live Concert With Chamber Orchestra. /digi-pack/.

..competent engagement of an orchestra virtually automatically adds volume – but there are nuances. In this case, this is author material, an indie project constructed around the bandura (and the ambition is to make the bandura sound modern, not emasculated) – moreover, from the very beginning KRUT has been tending towards crossovers in his style solutions..

Troye Zillia. Paradise Birds. /digi-pack/.

This is a collection of Christmas songs – and one tends to expect that this kind of albums are unwrapped in an unhurried way, have a kind of enlightened, relaxed moods, or even the "pink syrup". Here – the musicians did it differently. From the first seconds, the percussion unequivocally hints: that will be music with a joyful drive, and so it proves later...

KRUT. Arche. /digi-pack/.

..a full-fledged author album wrapped around the bandura so that the music intertwines several styles, from jazz and soul to blues and pop funk. Thus, "Arche" appeals not only (and not so much) to the Ukrainian tradition: it is an attempt to break stereotypes and at a dialog of cultures. A worthy attempt and vivid dialog.

Georgiy Matviyiv. Exit.

The musical art of Georgiy Matviyiv is a great example of continuation of the kobzar traditions. Informal and innovational in the same time, his attitude to the instrument realized in authors plays for the bandura and in authors performance of these plays, describing ancient kobzars traditions of the attitude to bandura, as to a "loyal wife"...
