This album is a unique phenomenon in the modern Ukrainian music. Really. Interesting attempts to modernize the classical music have already been undertaken – it is worth mentioning the "Le Forze Del Destino". But. Here we have, first, interpretation of the European classics in the Latin American vein, which they definitely have not tried here so far, at least at the scale of an entire album. And, second – not only the music, but also the vocal manner has been reconsidered. Radically. An original idea – and, quite possibly, flawless implementation. Anyway, I see no reasons – none at all – to find faults. And I am happy with that...

To my mind, the key heroes of the album "Amor" are Tanya Sha and Svet. Everything else – these are six years of work, about thirty musicians more from several countries and continents, the lecture with Monteverdi's music as the penultimate point, etc. – that was needed just in order that the drink, already excellent, acquired some nobility. The special one that appears only with time – if it is filled with experience. However, there is another protagonist – death. More precisely – its impermanence, oddly enough. Thus – immortality. Arguments? Here you are: the "youngest" piece from the track list of the album (the aria "Vesti la giubba" ("Ridi Pagliaccio") from the opera "Pagliacci") – this year becomes exactly 120 years old, the "oldest" (the madrigal "Amor") is approximately 380 years old. So, what did they sing? – "...This music will be eternal, if I replace the battery"... That's it.

Roman Kolyada. Expectancy. /eco-pack/.


Several pieces in the beginning are just about how it was before. And then – you catches yourself thinking: no, this is not ragtime – but a clear echo, and the figure of a ballroom pianist emerges in your imagination.. And then – you discover that it was the beginning, because the music departs from the shore of abstract lyricism and starts its travel throughout the world..

Lviv chamber orchestra "Academia". With love in heart.


Lviv Chamber Orchestra, founded in 1959, was the first ensemble of that type in Ukraine. Till now it remains one of the best orchestras in Ukraine and may be not only in Ukraine. The orchestra often performs concerts and is a laureate and a winner of many festivals and contests.

Bohdan Matviychuk. Mezzo Forte.


..the dreamy melodies by Bohdan Matviychuk cause the desire to watch, to listen closer: there is that subtle degree of silence in them that makes it possible to hear – your own heart.. Mezzo forte, "not too loudly" – isn't it the way the lightest dreams, memories, and reflections come to us?..

Olena Hrebenjuk. "Le Forze Del Destino" project. /digi-pack/


I do not know whether I will grow fond of opera, but I really like this disc. In this case, modernization, fortunately, does not mean vulgarization. The sound is so soft, mild, deep that it is impossible to come off it.

Revenko Band. Felicity.


Airy, almost weightless, joyful – although with a light pensive note, but without anchors of sorrow. This is not slow, heated summer – rather, fresh coolness of early spring, which is not afraid to become an attentive autumn in the course of time.
Domestic price: 113.24UAH, International price: $11.92USD

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.

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: 255.74UAH, International price: $26.92USD

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: 132.24UAH, International price: $13.92USD

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...

Pur:Pur. Nevertheless. /digi-pack/.


You listen to it – and the feeling is as if right in front of your eyes the day turns longer, and the bitter and fresh, amber and transparent finds its way through the shy snow. After a long night.. The entire album dances at the crossroads of coolness and sunlight, goodbye and forgiveness..
Domestic price: 145.16UAH, International price: $15.28USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 221.16UAH, 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: 113.24UAH, 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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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: 151.24UAH, International price: $15.92USD

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: 122.74UAH, International price: $12.92USD

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.

Tanya Sha, Svet. 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..

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: 202.16UAH, International price: $21.28USD

Nino Katamadze, Insight. 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...

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: 132.24UAH, 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...

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... It’s 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.
