Astarta. Astarta/Edwin. /digi-pack/.
It would seem that they have already tried all options with the Ukrainian folklore, it has been mixed with everything but the theme is still relevant. The secret is, after all, not only the particular perspective but also the quality of performance. Cooperation of Astarta (a side project by Eduard Prystupa) with Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree bass-player) is just an example of such quality implementation of ideas, when first you do not even try to understand what the essence is, but just listen. Listen carefully, because it is delicious. And then you can speak for a long time about the altered melody pattern, unexpected rhythms, interesting fusion of electronic and acoustic sound, features of compilation, which allow, in particular, the vocal to exist simultaneously and deep within the music texture and sort of beyond it about just everything. But in the end, anyway, one very simple thing matters: it touches, makes one think about the cooking recipe and not pay too much attention to this kind of thoughts. This album has a slow, almost meditative drive. A very interesting feeling. The apparent arbitrariness of many lines when correctly assembled turns into indispensability. Nothing incredibly sophisticated but it turns out really good.

ONUKA, NAOFI. MOZAKA. /digi-pack/. (Mosaics)


"Mosaics" is like a home with a thousand windows, behind each of them there being a new landscape, its own story... and what goes without words. A bright house where all these different stories complement each other. Actually, Onuka does define her style as electro-folk, and this is, again, an intersection of the archaic and the modern via an attempt to pronounce old signs in the modern language.

Tonya Matvienko. ANTONINA project. /digi-pack/.


The basis for this experiment was recordings of singing by Tonya Matvienko's granny Antonina made 40 years ago. Due to digitalization of the records Tonya is actually singing as a duet with her grandmother... However, this is not the only amusing thing about the project: the music component appears quite far from simple dance and variety rails.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

ONUKA. Onuka. /digi-pack/.


In music as elsewhere there are revolutionary and evolutionary steps. But in fact the line is not on the "r", but on the implementation quality. The project "Onuka" in general, and the album "Onuka" in particular are exactly about the implementation quality...

SAMATA. Vopli Vidopliassova. (collection edition). /digi-pack/.


..a new experiment by "Bukovyna molfars". 12 songs by Vopli Vidoplyasova (this time without lyrics) 12 tracks with which one can both work and relax. It should be admitted that music by VV after adding those mentioned elements of new age, acid jazz and ethnic ornaments comes of an entirely different nature, content and potency...

Dazzle Dreams Sound System. Nepal. (CD+DVD).


On February, 21, 2008, the folklore expedition of the project Dazzle Dreams Sound System left for Nepal. The primary objective of the project is searching and recording of countries' ethnic music music samples, accumulation of an original record library and its integration into their own music. During one week, the guys accumulated a great number of original samples, and they became part of new tracks by Dazzle Dreams.
Domestic price: 253.75UAH, International price: $23.28USD

SAMATA. Fire-show.


If music of the album were not interesting, even then this release would be worth buying for the sake of the booklet, because it is a separate transparent trip. However, we a lucky the music also opens for us something new indeed. Or, maybe, you know other works in the style of "Carpathians new-age with elements of ethnic jazz"?
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Kind of Zero. Happy people. /digi-pack/


The third album of Serhiy Kindzerskyy is a bright mixture of different styles, as he feels equally comfortable in such styles as Progressive, Breakz, DrumNbass, Electro-Tech. Moreover, it is not the first time when Kind of Zero actively involves live instruments into his work you can hear violin, pipe, electro- and bass-guitar on the new album.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Carpathiana. Eat My Borsch.


...performances by the group are special for their ability to change the space, with this music air becomes light, but very saturated, energetic. However, it is not surprising, in fact Carpathiana combine in their work club, electronic culture with the colors of Ukrainian folklore.
Domestic price: 133.85UAH, International price: $12.28USD

Stelsi. Tam... (There...)


Stelsi continues singing their own texts and, we should say, one discovers more and more bright bunter there. In the combination with influences of synth-pop aesthetics it sounds both funny, and original. It cannot but please us, because only people with a sense of humor are able to change anything...
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

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: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Roman Kolyada, Anastasia Kolodiuk. KoKo Melange. /mini-pack/.


..it seems that there has not been an album with such a seemingly obvious solution ethno vocals plus keyboards. It should be admitted that due to appearance of KoKo Melange even if this issue has not been completely resolved, at least they have set the quality bar high: it would not be interesting to do worse, while it's no longer that easy to do better.
Domestic price: 188.35UAH, International price: $17.28USD

Dakh Daughters. Air. /digi-pack/.


It is obvious that something extraordinary was expected from DD so that it were different from the first album but not inferior to it. The girls have met the both expectations, this is a cool art-house piece, quite far from the ordinary..
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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

Antin Mukharsky, HraBlya band. Mama-Anarkhia. /digi-pack/. (Mama the Anarchy)


Today it is called Severe Ukrainianization. Because one can definitely say: this punk chanson does not care about tolerance, its objective is to extract to light of the day all the obsolete cliches and to pretty well trample on them. In a loud, energetic way and with such joyful rage that will make one either writhe, or eventually start laughing and recover...
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

TaRuta, Roman Kolyada. Nebesna sotnya / Celestial Hundred. (EP). /digi-pack/.


...it is a very brief statement. But the theme of it does not require a lot of words, after all. The main thing was to say that with dignity, and they have succeeded. Concise in the form, rich in the semantic content, and bright in the music representation.
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Folknery. Korysni rechi. /digi-pack/. (Useful Things)


...while grounding on Ukrainian folk songs (not played out at all), the musicians threw into the pot a whole bunch of everything African rhythms, rock groove, ethnic and electronic instruments and they mixed that up well. The result turned out pretty hot to taste, diverse, sometimes quite unexpected.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

ILLaria. Vilna. (2nd edition). /digi-pack/. (Free)


...the album "Free" resembles that very puzzle, an element of mosaics that was lacking in order that the picture became integral, completed. It disregarding, let me repeat it, the status of the debut one seems to sum up some results, outline the visible and known space and, thus, free space for a step forward.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

TaRuta. EthnoLab. /digi-pack/.


..what is specific: the core of the Ukrainian archaic material is not hidden, not disguised as it could be and as it has already happened. On the contrary, the foundation is very expressive, while all the rest it is like pastel lighting. All those small sounds of country, rock, fusion, disco, club electronics they are as if New Year decorations on a living tree...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Dark Patrick. Rise of the Underworld. /mini-pack/.


..Its hard to pinpoint exact influences that aptly mirror what Dark Patrick is going for here, though a safe bet would want to include nods to numerous strata of organic electronica, soundtrack ambient, world ethnotronica, psych and trip-hop. Additionally, the band claims some affiliation to the fertile soils of reggae, dub and trance...

Iryna Zhytynska, Taras Zhytynsky. Duet.


The album "Duet" is a combination of not only two voices. This is synthesis of two very different manners of performance, schools, music styles, and aesthetics. Since Taras Zhytynsky is a rock singer, and Iryna Zhytynska is an opera singer (mezzo-soprano), a soloist of Wroclaw Opera House...
Domestic price: 122.95UAH, International price: $11.28USD

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: 129.93UAH, International price: $11.92USD

Mad Heads XL. UkrainSKA. /eco-pack/.


The familiar melodies will arise in an updated, sometimes unexpected form, unknown ones will have a chance not to be forgotten. Folk songs in the style of Mad Heads XL, the sound is based on modern ska-punk without clear style limits. Positive, good moods and frantic drive all the best from Mad Heads XL now in folk songs!
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Ojra. Krokovoje koleso. /digi-pack/


First I listened to the Ojras records somewhere at the end of 90-ties, yet then it was the attempt to join the archaic and the up-to-date. The staff of the group changed several times since then, and they didnt give up to search. Of course, a variety of creative paths they made gave its outcome: one of the best, I think, neo-folk records of all Ukrainian discography of the recent years.
Domestic price: 217.13UAH, International price: $19.92USD

DakhaBrakha. Na mezhi. /digi-pack/. (On the Verge)


..here, "On the Verge" the force of water is revealed very perceptibly, magic of quite a different level appears, intended for other purposes. That is, the first works were just to burn everything old, not able to live on to clear the space. The new work must feed the new, fresh relying on those roots that did not subdue to the action of fire. That verge from which creation of the new myth..

Folk band "Burdon". Taistra Chuhaistra.


Burdon is able even from some rather whimsical, complicated rhythms, tempos and melodies to produce such a refined, well-balanced space that both people and clouds, and trees quite freely, naturally start dancing in it isn't that a miracle And nobody interferes with anyone, steps on a shade vice versa, there is mutual complementing and filling. There is mutual understanding.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Folk band "Burdon". Re: Karpatia.


The mosaic that results is as bright as deep "Burdon" once again opens the beauty of old music virtually lost for large audiences. And, at the same time, throws a tank of oxygen into the flame of modern folk let it burn brightly and not die away...
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Olexa Kabanov. Dale of Muses.


The album "Valley of Muses" is, in fact, a Ukrainian project in the domain of world music at that, presumably, virtually the first one in Ukraine. It is strange and nice to hear how organically there sound together, for example, the lyre, the deeply Ukrainian violin, and the Indian percussion. Or the mandolin with the drymba why not a couple?
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

ILLaria. 13 misyatsiv. /digi-pack/. (13 Months)


...Ukrainian authenticity is primarily the mystical energy of the earth and the complete harmony with the space. This is very powerful music! The new disc by ILLARIA is a kind of a calendar of Ukrainian music traditions. It includes cover versions of well-known folk songs based on authentic archival records.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Oleh Skrypka. DJ O'Skrypka: Ethno disco party. /digi-pack/.


A compilation album by DJ O'Skrypka in the progressive "ethno-disco" style. Selected hits by the famous "Ukrainsky Vechornytsi" composed of dance tracks performed by Oleh Skrypka, the groups "Vopli Vidoplyasova", "Vasya Club", "Mandry", "Stelsi", "Soncekliosh" and other leading contemporary Ukrainian musicians.
Domestic price: 151.73UAH, International price: $13.92USD

Alibi. Folk. /digi-pack/.


...arrangements of this album very relevantly intertwine Ukrainian melodies with folk tunes of other nations. The palette is very broad from klezmer and to gospel and that, you know, positively impresses. Definitely "Alibi" grows over itself, and grows in an interesting way.
Domestic price: 173.53UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Pavlo Tabakov. Rizdvo dlja dvokh. (Christmas for Two)


Careful attitude to derivative material, interesting arrangements, general saturation of the musical component with various optional but so appropriate decorations all of that is here. And all of that makes the album "Christmas for Two", maybe, one of the best pop-albums devoted to the theme of Christmas during the several recent years.
Domestic price: 195.33UAH, International price: $17.92USD

Ruslana. Wild Energy.


"Amazon" became the messenger of changes though interesting but still a test of forces, reconnaissance of other territories. Now this is obvious, because "Wild Energy", in its turn, is a weighty result of those very deep quality transformations. The disc should, obviously, become the head stone in creating the image of a new Ruslana and it has everything necessary for that. This is really another quality of music, and not only music.
Domestic price: 140.83UAH, International price: $12.92USD

Ruslana. Amazonka. (Amazon)


Well, you may be confident she will surprise you. First with that she has finally managed to separate herself with a significant distance from the Ruslana who was glorified by Wild Dances. Sure, that was far not easy sure, that was vitally necessary. And, second, she will no doubt surprise you with HOW she has changed...

Serhiy Zakharec'. Huljay, molodyy! /digi-pack/. (Make Merry, Youth!)


The project "Make Merry, Youth!" is an attempt to connect in the ethno-pop music genre reconstructed samples of folk and professional traditions of the center and east of Ukraine, use authentic music instruments, playing techniques and sound scales for their full-fledged introduction into modern youth culture. And also to make the ear of a wide audience of listeners used to the new timbre...

Max Chorny. The New Sound of Ethnic Ukraine.


In spite of the fact that this album is an electronic one, personally I associate it with my childhood, though being a child I knew nothing about electronic music. May be, the explanation is that the album contains the melodies, which I heard by radio in those times.
