Taras Zhytynsky. Kozatski balady. (Cossack Ballads)

Taras Zhytynsky. Kozatski balady. (Cossack Ballads)
Without regard to that Taras Zhytynsky lives (if nothing has changed) in London his presence in the Ukrainian space is becoming more and more perceptible. At all events, you now see his already second solo album released in Ukraine and this is again a disc really worth paying attention to. Taras mainly sings folk songs and far not all of these songs are as known and popular as they deserve being. But here one should be grateful not only for revival of some songs, but also for how they sound in his performance. Taras Zhytynsky has the voice and intonations that it is just difficult not to trust to. One can hear that nothing pretentious takes place, nothing "on sale". It would seem that that's nothing much only the guitar and singing but all that sounds really honest and strong. To make it short natural. To such an extent that at some instant one even thinks: can it be that once these songs sounded otherwise? Even though Taras accompanies to himself with the guitar, in his manner some subconscious, internal link with the kobza and lyre players' tradition can be recognized in spite of that the guitar sounds quite modern. Although, probably there is no formal link let us leave it at discretion of experts. But, anyway, "Cossack Ballads", in our opinion, is one of those albums that are worth attentive listening.

Audio cassette/ ..This is, without exaggeration, a legendary album. And it was not even about the list of the project's authors.. The album was first released in 2000 and it was perhaps the first collection of insurgents' songs in modern arrangements in Ukraine. And it still, in my opinion, remains the best one.

And we are happy to admit that the tradition is kept on compilers of the series, as well as before, discover new original themes for the collections this is important, you should agree.
