Olexandr Ihnatusha. Bily vovk. /digi-pack/. (White Wolve)

Olexandr Ihnatusha. Bily vovk. /digi-pack/. (White Wolve)

It is very pleasant. And also a bit nostalgic, but once again - it has a pleasant content. The explanation may be found in the fact that Oleksandr Ihnatusha is a producer. At a certain moment it seems as if you were listening not to a simple musical album, but to a collection of songs from films. From old and kind films about love, striving, laugh and tears, nonsense and serious questions of life. About the truth of our life – not that truth, which one can find in papers or TV news, but the truth, which one can find in the eyes of a smiling person. Sometimes this person is five years old, sometimes – seventeen, sometimes – as much as usual people do not live. At another moment it reminds the songs of bards – not those who live in the British Isles, but those who live in post-Soviet countries. After that it seems as if you had opened a music box which has been found in the thickets of adult belongings – in it melodies and lyrics have been hidden, and very often it happens that adults lack them. The next moment you understand that the actors who perform in this theatre have such expressive faces that they need no masks or make-up. May be, they play parts. Or may be those parts play them. Everything is honest. Then it becomes cosy.

Vjacheslav Hursenko. Sokolyata. /cassette/.

Audio cassette/ ..He is a successor of a certain art tradition, a performer with his own face and style. With a nice face and a clear style.

Ihor Bilyi. Ya – ne lyalka. /digi-pack/. (I Am Not a Puppet)

Actually, this is the author's album – Igor Bily is the author of all the lyrics, and he did not organize any band to that end. All the songs are for two guitars. Concise, clear, and simple enough. However, the key emphasis is still on the lyrics – it is worth listening, hearing, and understanding. Attentive songs are always relevant.

Volodymyr Shynkaruk. Shestystrunnyy doshch. Vam, molodym... (Six-String Rain. For you, the young...)

...if the inner world of a person is multidimensional – it is possible to wander in these dimensions infinitely, and about each of them it is possible to tell some story. Volodymyr Shynkaruk seems to have in store an infinite number of such histories – and he knows how to tell them honestly, deeply, interestingly. So that at a certain instant his stories become – your own.

Volodymyr Shynkaruk. Perekoty-nebo. (TumbleSky)

This seems to be that very bardic song, although in the sounding there is now more transparent, delicate sense, which is conveyed not with words, but exactly with music. But at the same time, the word has not become less significant. As it should be when the issue is intelligent, thought over, internally experienced texts, not just rhymed lines of certain meters.

Eduard Drach. Nebo Ukrajiny.

Edward Drach appeals to the Kyivska Rus history either in strict historical or at a poetic foreshortening at least in this album. Actually, that is what he us a poet for. More precisely - the bard.

Serhij Moroz. Jarij, Dushe...

Vasyl Stus is one of those poets who are known to everybody who knows at least something about Ukrainian poetry. That’s why it is not a surprise to anyone that from time to time musicians of quite different styles and trends turn to his literary heritage...
