Ukrainian song and dance party. Golden Collection.

When the disc has such a name, theres no need to add anything, because everything is clear. Nevertheless, lets develop this idea a bit. The thing is that a party will be a party, but in the Ukrainian village it is exactly the so called troyisti musyky (trio of performers) who are not simply performers. I will not be mistaken if I say that troyisti musyky have always congratulated a common Ukrainian, that is a common villager, with birth, entertained him during his whole life and even attended his funeral. Troyisti. There was hardly a decent tavern in which they did not perform. And now it is the same way an alive music always attracts more attention and commands more respect towards a house. Still, going back to this particular disc, I will state something else. It is not an entirely entertaining recording, though music recorded at it is really various, cheerful and alive. I would like to stress alive. Forty one tracks forty one groups from the whole country, and at that theres no synthesizers here. It is, Id rather say, a force.

This CD is filled with very lively music, ideal for singing and dancing (if one has more energy than I do!). Although I am not fond of the Ukrainian bilyj holos singing, it is part of the music of the country and important to preserve. The purely instrumental tracks are a delight for those who enjoy folk music. Some of the music strongly resembles some of the folk music of the USA, which of course is a melting pot. I am sure some melodies have traveled across numerous countries and seas to be played in numerous places around the world. All in all this is a CD that folk music lovers would do well to add to their music library.

Somewhat dissappointing--there are some decent tracks but overall very raw, poorly mixed technically,i.e.-many tracks have percussion as the most prominent instrument. Far too many 1 minute melodies.
