Aby MC, Tanya Radosteva. F5. /digi-pack/


There happen moments in life when suddenly you understand that you are happy not some time after, not some time ago – but right now, right here, just as you are – happy... This album is full of exactly such happiness – it exists right here and now, it quietly shines in each melody. Here, it is very cozy...
Domestic price: 221.16UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Aby MC. Ocetni standarty. (Acid Standards)


They strikingly harmoniously combine clear sorrow, sadness – with joy as clear. And that is why there is inside always a place left for light. Usually, children have this ability – and it does not matter how old they are...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

AtmAsfera. ..forgotten love.


On the one hand, everything is simple – it contains both a rich instrumental component, and the ethno-jazz-rock mixture with the psychedelic aftertaste, and, certainly, the magic seasoning of ancient language. On the other hand – everything is also simple: the soul was invested here, one can hear this – and, maybe, that is why the music penetrates so deeply...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Olga Voichenko, Sergey Kapeliushok, Pavlo Shepeta. Spivanochky moi. Ukrainian folk songs. /eco-pack/. (My Songs)


The recording is luxurious – perhaps, one could hardy put it in other words. This is something that so far we have not had: a vocal and instrumental album of Ukrainian folk songs at the intersection of jazz, chamber and symphonic, variety art music (such as, for example, songs by Frank Sinatra or Astrud Gilberto)...
Domestic price: 255.74UAH, International price: $26.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Light. /digi-pack/.


...the content of the album in the style aspect is ambiguous – but, definitely, interesting. This time to their branded ethno-chaos they have added quite a bit of very diverse elements: here you have soul, and D'n'B, and hip-hop, and art-rock, and almost jazz decorations. It appears cool.
Domestic price: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Dislocados. Pasaporte Universal. /digi-pack/.


Frankly speaking, none of the Umka.com.ua team was a fan of Hard Salsa – but, believe me, this in no way prevented us from enjoying what we heard. A very sunny, powerful work – and even an arrangement of the famous "Billie Jean" sounds completely organic here. However, it is not surprising...
Domestic price: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

DomRa. Kupal‘s‘ka.


Victor Solomin is virtually the only jazz domra-player in Ukraine, therefore the both of his ethno-jazz projects – "SolominBand" and "DomRa" – have here no immediate analogues just by definition. Besides, "DomRa" can boast two key instruments at once: those are the domra and the vocal, and it is they that provide the "ethnic component" of the sounding here.
Domestic price: 88.16UAH, International price: $9.28USD

Dudko quintet. Sofia.


"Sofia" is not something soft and sweet. Fresh improvisation music with the Slavonic flavor – bright and rather poignant music, which in no way fits for serving as just a background. It requires attentive listening, and it is just pleasant to listen to it attentively, to track the line of each instrument...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. Gabrielius. /digi-pack/


Only natural things can be like that – the sea in any weather, a streamlet somewhere in the mountains, the eyes of a horse or a deer, a green greeting of an old willow, a smile of an infant …
Domestic price: 673.74UAH, International price: $70.92USD

Er.J.Orchestra. On the Hill Again. (special CD+DVD edition). /digi-pack/


Sure, Er. J. Orchestra is one of the most interesting Ukrainian projects in the domain of ethno-fusion today. And not only Ukrainian ones. Actually, this music is so organically intertwined into the world sound fabric – it is impossible to limit it with any borders, geographic or stylistic, etc.
Domestic price: 601.16UAH, International price: $63.28USD

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn Live. (2CD).


...each of them separately does not really have almost anything too sophisticated, to say nothing about the superfluous – but these transparent lines interlace so pointedly and charmingly, that an indescribably rich matter of light appears. In the case of Er.J.Orchestra, it is not only about concert improvisations – the issue is discovery and creation of old-new worlds, no less.
Domestic price: 240.16UAH, International price: $25.28USD

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn. (remastered). /digi-pack/.


This is the third album in the official discography of Er.J.Orchestra. And I really hope that it will be not a stop, not completion of the trilogy, but one of the many pearls on the thread. Such music simply must be incarnated, sound, fill the space – at least because honest beauty, dignity, authenticity live in it...
Domestic price: 236.74UAH, International price: $24.92USD

Igor Zakus, Z-Band. Kolomyyky. /digi-pack/. (Kolomyikas)


"Kolomyikas" is a good album with bright pieces that are able to capture the audience as it is, even without associations with the material it derives from. In the end, there was no "weak link" in the team of the album’s creators. That is, probably, the reason why, without regard to the intense structure, there is within the music fabric – freedom, which makes it possible to breathe deeply.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Enver Izmailov Trio. Minaret.


From ballads to dance, from folklore through art rock to meditation and jazz – I would call this world fusion, as a lot of roots from the whole world have intertwined here. However, all the plays have their common root: the basis is creative re-consideration of music of Crimean Tatars and other Black Sea peoples.
Domestic price: 626.24UAH, International price: $65.92USD

Caipirinha. Caipirinha.


Very lively music, which almost imperceptibly but inexorably draws you into the circle of its fluctuations – even if you have never paid much attention to the Brazilian music.. At the same time – everything is so smooth and intelligent as it is possible when it comes to cool tunes, Latin American rhythms, and the energy of a warm holiday.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Green.


Very transparent, juicy, quiet and confident and yet full of irrepressible life – this is what this work appears like. Stylistically, it continues the trend including the albums "Black" and "Red" – the pure jazz-rock line, with no direct immersions into the lounge or symphonicity. But in a much softer, tender version.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Nino Katamadze, Insight. Yellow.


..And there ever is love for the music – no matter where musicians roam following the quest while working on new material. Yellow. Life-giving. Hot and humid. Warm. Dry and mirage-like. Joyful. Acute. Crumbling. Spicy. Soft. Diverse and – alive... Listen.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

LBB. Lemko Bluegrass Band. /digi-pack/.


An album that's a joke, a discovery, a surprise, a challenge – combining the folk music of the Carpathians with the North American folk. LBB have danced that subtly but stoutly: monologues about dialogues of cultures are not really needed when you have such illustrations at hand..
Domestic price: 141.74UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Marinita. Marinita. /digi-pack/.


Marinita is, in fact, Maryna Zakharova, who was the heart of the very original project Anno Domini. So, Marinita is a certain development to the story, testing herself in a new, even more open format: with the opportunity to collaborate without any special linking to a certain composition. The debut album under the new name...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Kristina Marti, Laura Marti. Chanapar. /digi-pack/.


Sincere, masterful, colorful, delicious – fragrant ethno-jazz and abundance of subtle patterns, and none of the project participants stay in the shade. But the singing... So bright, sharp, emotional – sometimes tender and transparent, cozy – sometimes so deep that when listening you forget to breathe...
Domestic price: 145.16UAH, International price: $15.28USD

Motion Trio. Pictures from the Street.


It seems to me that none who has at least once heard performance by Motion Trio – and the more so none who has seen it – will ever forget, mix it up with anybody. And the thing is not only original composition – although you will hardly find among performers of jazz, art rock, folk fusion another trio what would consist exceptionally of accordions.
Domestic price: 173.66UAH, International price: $18.28USD

Vagif Mustafa-zadeh. One Day in Kyiv.


Masterly patterns painted in the air by gentle movements of fantasy and skill are extremely tender and tempestuous at the same time. They resemble the southern heat reproduced at the transparent windowpane by frost and rime.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Gregory Nemirovsky. SonGs in the Key of Odd. /eco-pack/.


As the title promises, the album has turned out quite strange – but in a good sense. This is the strangeness that can only be afforded by good, versatile musicians – otherwise, originality may easily turn into farce, showing off. This did not happen here – one virtually feels with one's skin in what a thin, delicate way all of that is compiled.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Pelican Jazz Quartet. From Spain to Brasil. /re-edition, digi-pack/.


...the disc by a completely different jazz project by Serhiy Krasheninnikov – Pelican Jazz Quartet. I hope you will enjoy this music – spontaneous, slightly peppery, far from finished grinding, unpredictable, as is Life itself. Indeed, Jazz is free music of free people! Free both in life, and in their self-expression...
Domestic price: 107.16UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Pravytsya. Kryvy tanets. /digi-pack/. (Crooked Dance)


"Pravytsya" do not limit themselves to a certain style – in their interpretations one can hear jazz, blues, soul, rock aspects, even the Ukrainian country music in the Irish style. Without unnecessary extravagance, but fancy – and, at the same time, I would say, very cautious..
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Yuliya Roma. Raduysya. Ukrainian carols. /digi-pack/. (Rejoice)


To enrich them with modern colors without destroying the subtle paths of the light joy inherent in Christmas carols and shchedrivkas – which is not an easy task. Since it requires great attention and tolerance. Finally, it just requires love for this music, for the roots – and love that is creative. And it seems – they have succeeded.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

SV Savana. Two Ways.


That's right: it is a fusion of diverse, multi-style guitar music and spicy rhythmic patterns – all of that together sounds very emotional and surprisingly rich. Another proof of that in order to create interesting, live music one does not necessarily need to gather a bunch of people.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Smack Band. Just Music.


..from the first seconds the strong stream of jazz-rock and fusion strikes – the Latin American component is first completely hidden. It emerges gradually, as if the balance is leveled – but folk-rock waves in the spirit of Jethro Tull also emerge, and then gestures toward the ambient and the Scandinavian electronic jazz, and that's far from being all ...
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Smack Band. Coisa Ligeira. /digi-pack/.


The content of the new album by Smack Band completely corresponds to its name – it is really light and soft. That is what one needs on a sunny day to tune in unison with it (the day). That is what one needs in the event of a period of rain – so that it were lighter on the heart..
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Fusion Orchestra. Apocrypha. /digi-pack/


Yes, in this music you can still hear well the hot southern sun – but still, on the foreground, you have original cool elegance. And one can feel based on which law the space of the disc is designed: rather not to satiate, but to extend this space as much as possible – but softly.
Domestic price: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Fusion Orchestra. Octagon. /digi-pack/


It is great pleasure – to listen to music that has let in, changed, satiated and breathed out so many bright impressions, lives, root... When music is wide open – everybody can drink from it, see one's face in it, find in its one's real.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Igor Khoma. Ukrainian jazz.


Even today not too much of such music is being created in Ukraine – to say nothing about the middle of the last century.. Igor Khoma managed to involve really wonderful musicians into his band – the rhythm sections, the winds, the strings and the keys in various plays pleasantly surprise. But still the most striking thing is the authentic Ukrainian spirit of the music represented here.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Anya Tchaykovska, Acoustic Quartet. Krosna. /premium, digi-pack/. (Hoop)


(this disc is an exclusive thing, and you cannot buy it. But you can get it as a present). Living water – that's how this music is heard. And it catches you and carries on the waves, and even over them, and it does not let you freeze – and at the same time it fascinates you as if you stand in the middle of the wind and shine. Total magic, what can I say..
Domestic price: 0.00UAH, International price: $0.00USD

ShockolaD. Schedryi vechir z dobrym jazzom. /re-edition, mini-pack/. (Christmas Eve Wiz Good Jazz)


In its previous album "Pokosy", ShockolaD stepped away from jazz for an almost safe distance – the key definition of the work would be "ethno-lounge". Well, and this time the group seems to have decided to remix all familiar ingredients – both the ethno, and jazz, and acoustic lounge – and, sure, to season it with a few new colors.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

ShockolaD, Ewa Novel. Nova. /digi-pack/.


..the circle is closed for them to reach something new: from the initial composition, only Anastasia Litvinyuk and Ihor Hnydyn have stayed, the rest of the lines are within responsibility of our Polish brethren led by Ewa Novel. And somehow quite expectedly the band's music has regained its distinct ethno-jazz colors, stepping aside from the previous lounge rails.
Domestic price: 135.66UAH, International price: $14.28USD

Shopping Hour. Sunce Viter. (premium edition). /digi-pack/. (The Sun Wind)


Is the studio version different from the concert one? No doubt. Without disclosing all secrets, it is enough to say that it remains up to date to go beyond one language and one culture. In my opinion, the album represents the Ukrainian music, but the music which is done by the new generation. It is the product of the new world. The entire world.
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Shopping Hour. Amor. /digi-pack/.


This album is a phenomenon in the modern Ukrainian music. Here we have, first, interpretation of the European classics in the Latin American vein, which they definitely have not tried here so far. And, second – not only the music, but also the vocal manner has been reconsidered. Radically..
Domestic price: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Shopping Hour. Sunce Viter. /digi-pack/. (The Sun Wind)


Music contents of this release do not differ from the premium edition (apart from a hidden surprise track). Differences relate only to the external design – besides, there is no booklet with the lyrics here. Hence the lower price of this edition compared to the premium one.
