I think, there is no people, who know something about Ukraine and haven't heard a word about kobza. Actually, it is musical symbol of Ukraine. Yuri Yatsenko is a professional musician, soloist of the Orchestra Of Folk Instruments of Ukraine
. On this CD you will hear soundings of kobza, enriched with considerable quantity of other folk instruments, and also solo works played by maestro. Kobza is irreplaceable tool in ensemble though without support it also sounds very floridly. So, if you like kobza - enjoy it, if not - get acquainted!
