Chicheri. Ukrainian folk songs performed by Ukrainian vocal-instrumental ensembles. Golden Collection.
The oldest of these recordings was made as early as 1972 and the latest one was made in 1992, when Ukraine became an independent state. So, this disc covers twenty years, during which three epochs have changed. Children of those days now have their own children, but songs have their own time dimension. Today everybody sings them, tomorrow – practically nobody does it, the day after tomorrow they will be recalled again and very often will be performed the way they are performed today. The same happened with these songs, and not only because they are folk ones, that is – almost eternal. There are two reasons for that, I think. One of them lies in memory, to be exact – in nostalgia for those times. To be even more exact – nostalgia for youth, when it is so easy to perceive brightness and beauty of life. Still, there is one more reason why people recollect these songs as they were performed exactly by groups of those days. You see, it is not the first attempt to perform folk songs with the help of modern instruments and devices and to interpret their music into modern language. Besides, twenty years present a real history within the history itself. At that, today, I think, we do not estimate the success of these attempts. We are just listening. As we listened long ago. As we listen now.

No music instrument is able to surpass the force of expressiveness of the human voice – or almost unable. At least, it is with voice that they compare sounding of an instrument – when it sounds so beautiful and live that it seems to be a miracle...
