Anno Domini. Galilee.

Reviews (2)
Anno Domini. Galilee.

If we begin from the end, we could do it so: this is a wonderful, heartfelt, clear, high-quality album and at present this is the best album in the reserve of Anno Domini. And if we begin from the beginning... "Galilee" was recorded in a far not easy way. One night, the three came together in the concerto hall of Kharkiv Philharmonic Society and recorded live the whole album at once the vocal+piano, guitar and percussion. This became the basis. Then the recording traveled to Israel the guitar of Dmytro Gorelik was added some more. From there to the Crimea, where Narket Ramazanov recorded the flute, then to the USA, there a small chamber orchestra was added, then again to Ukraine. Last strokes of percussion, and months of laborious assembling, for they had to overlay all studio parts on the live master record, remember? Thus, it is not by chance that the polygraph contains a large photo of the sound producer Evgen Astafyev, he became one of main heroes of the album. The album is, let me repeat, wonderful without any exaggerations. All previous experience, all best qualities of Anno Domini acquired new depth here, started shining with new colors. Tolerant (you want to say tender) combination of classics, varied ethnics, transparent jazz charms, warms. Special gratitude to Boris Zaharov for the poems, these are not texts this is poetry. And the voice of Marina Zaharova... only a woman who knows love and freedom knows the both at the same time can sing so. The mother conscious of that every child has his/her own way can...

Dakh Daughters. If. /digi-pack/.


..a studio album is a different story, it offers an opportunity to hear, not to see: music balancing on the brink of theater. Due to the art of intonation, which sometimes reaches its extreme and takes a step further but also due to the art of silence, which only rarely acts as a pause, taking a breath, but mostly it keeps producing supplementary senses.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Shlyakh. /premium, digi-pack/. (The Road)


This album was ready in the autumn of 2016 but the musicians were in doubt, as a result they literally re-created it from scratch (the sound producer was Yuryi Hustochka). And it turned out superb, literally. Fragile like the frosty crust on morning snow, thick and fragrant like masala an album of hope, an album of surprise. Steppe blues..
Domestic price: 162.63UAH, International price: $14.92USD

Khrystyna Soloviy. Zhyva voda. Premium edition. /digi-pack/. (Living Water)


Recording of the debut album was supported, among others, by Olexiy Morozov, Denys Dudko, Alik Fantaev, Milos Jelic... In short, it has happily happened. It sounds interesting and it is not only due to the relaxed, delicious arrangement clarity or the sincerity of intonations. There is also a sort of a special tint in the timbre..
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Jamala. All Or Nothing. /digi-pack/.


..It feels like listening to two albums simultaneously, one of which contains a colorful, complex mixture of styles, from soul and disco to electro-pop, with a bright admixture of classical training and jazz thinking. And the second one blues, in all of its beautiful simplicity...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Jamala. For Every Heart: Live at Arena Concert Plaza. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/.


The concert performance it is different, and not only due to presence of a new song. The sound, nuances of arrangements, team of musicians but, above all the energy. And this is the case when, even while just listening to the recording, you experience a kind of happening not least due to Jamala's affection for gospel.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Boombox. Seredniy vik. /digi-pack/. (Middle Age)


The new album by Boombox is another very significant reason to mention the year 2011 as one of the most yielding years for the non-ordinary Ukrainian popular music. No doubt despite the title, "Middle Age", no crisis is in question here. On the contrary.
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Pur:Pur. Papercuts. (EP). /digi-pack/.


The same case when you listen and you just delicious, let it be said that this nearly weightless blend call. And that is why, perhaps, it seems that musicians Pur:Pur can easily fit in any cultural landscape or, conversely, to write it in your sunny space.
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Jamala. For Every Heart. /digi-pack/


Jamala and the debut album illustrates this very nicely creates light music in the best Western tradition. And not just coolly at a high quality level. Her love for soul, funk, jazz, burlesque and even classical music it's all here, in this music so many things are mixed that you cannot guess everything at once...
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Svet, Tanya Sha. Ten Step Journey.


Fortunately, sometimes you run across the albums about which it is very difficult to say anything because you just frankly like them. Because, in spite of external simplicity, they contain so many ideas, various subtleties one's ears just go astray..) Because the music tells you stories without words, while the words tell you stories full to the brims with music..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Anniebri. Lo-Fi Feeling.


It would seem just vocal and the piano. But this only verbally looks rather ascetic in actual fact, a surprisingly powerful emotional current lives inside there. Actually, the way the voice and the piano sound makes Hanna Brizhata, aka Anniebri, a truly unordinary phenomenon on our scene. Honestly speaking, I can hardly think about a single Ukrainian album resembling "Lo-Fi Feeling"...
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. Vnochi. /digi-pack/. (At Night)


In spite of that At Night compositions do not meet the pop-format, the album is aimed at mass audience. The name, voice and the specific, characteristic of only Svyatoslav Vakarchuk melodics of the compositions will help fans of Ukrainian music become acquainted with new music forms, to seize new music territories.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Tanok Na Maydani Kongo, Skhid-Side. Jazzy. Live.


...the songs, which are well-known to us, are performed in a jazz manner, and people say that Skhid-Side ("East-Side") is in fact one of the best jazz bands of Ukraine... Especially because in this particular case it is not only jazz, but also TNMKongo - this mixture turns out to be strikingly successful...
Domestic price: 155.65UAH, International price: $14.28USD

LoTus, Rosava. LoTus feat. Rosava.


As a rule the idea of heroic nature has never even crossed the minds of the heroic figures. Moreover they can even get frightened if one alludes to this. But still they continue doing their work. Just because it is their... Its no use in objecting to the fact that real musicians, the same as the real music, begin with an ability to listen carefully. To listen and to hear.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Anton Pyvovarov. Lemkian Suite. /digi-pack/.


..the fact that a Kyivite turns to Lemkian songs is unexpected and interesting. The musicians are very caution about the authentic material, they do not shutter the songs architecture. Instead, they delicately unwrap and decorate the main lines, having arrived in their arrangements at a certain common denominator for the generally diverse plays..
Domestic price: 184.43UAH, International price: $16.92USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Ewa Novel, ShockolaD. 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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. 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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Acoustic Quartet, Anya Tchaykovska. 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: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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: 206.23UAH, International price: $18.92USD

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: 199.25UAH, International price: $18.28USD

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: 242.85UAH, International price: $22.28USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. 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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

DomRa. Kupalska.


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: 86.33UAH, International price: $7.92USD

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: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

Insight, Nino Katamadze. Blue.


...the fact that creation of the concert concept and recording of the album took place in Kyiv, and the sound direction, mixing and mastering of the album was also done by Kyivites these are no doubt pleasant and significant nuances. To be related to appearance of such music this is a noble business. Nino Katamadze is just truly special, and that is the essence...
Domestic price: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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 albums 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: 166.55UAH, International price: $15.28USD

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: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Yuriy Kovtun. BraviBelli.


...the album at once creates elated, festive mood but in a surprising way. In the correct way. Because, although about a half of the compositions can hardly be called merry ones a smile is very expressly felt in them. Somewhere dim, somewhere transparent, somewhere dreamy, somewhere thoughtful but it is present in each piece, and it warms.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

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: 598.63UAH, International price: $54.92USD

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: 1012.83UAH, International price: $92.92USD

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.
