In fact, it seems to us that even the simple list of the musicians who took part in this project is very and very eloquent – these are the people who are creating the music glory of Ukraine literally all over the world. But even if they invited here only one out of this whole list – all the same it would be interesting to hear what results from that. No, a plenty of "stars" as they are do not yet guarantee significance of results, this is clear. But, on the other hand, here they are not fashionable rowdies from music – all these people have created themselves with everyday labor. The people having the nice habit of doing everything at a high quality level. Moreover, the main engine of this recording, Olexander Sparynsky, has already repeatedly proved his creative professionalism – we could only mention his, figuratively speaking, polyphonic projects: "Christ's Christmas 2000" or "Go Out, Vesnyanky!" In the end, "Spells of Kupala Night" is also a sort of polyphony, in which ancient ceremonies, modern technologies, authentic singing, improvisation thought, etc. interlace. Nevertheless, the mixture appears very easy for perception, friendly even to an unprepared listener. Thus, you now have in front of you – a modern view of the Kupala Night mystery. Welcome..
