Troye Zillia. Paradise Birds. /digi-pack/.

Troye Zillia. Paradise Birds. /digi-pack/.
Not so long ago the bandura could only occasionally be heard in the young Ukrainian music but the situation is changing. And while in authors' materials the bandura can be spotted more frequently (Tin Sontsya, Heorhiy Matviiv, KRUT, ONUKA, etc.), in the realm of including the bandura into the slightly jazz-like arrangements of Ukrainian folk songs, Troye Zillia may become, if not the first, at least one of the brightest bands. The album "Paradise birds" is a perfect demonstration of that. This is a collection of Christmas carols and Christmas songs and one tends to expect that this kind of albums are unwrapped in an unhurried way, have a kind of enlightened, relaxed moods, or even the "pink syrup". Here the musicians did it differently. From the first seconds, the percussion unequivocally hints: that will be music with a joyful drive, and so it proves later, despite a couple of quite lyrical digressions. Even "Holy Night" the conventional model of elegiacity when performed by Troye Zillia makes one think of someone like Irish Romani, or something.. The same goes about the other songs they will not be difficult to recognize, but freshness of the approach will definitely feel nice.

Ladovytsi. A Bozhaya Maty po svitu khodyla. /digi-pack/. (Oh Mother of God walked along the world)

"Ladovytsi" have a very respectful attitude to preservation of the tradition thus, we are talking about reproduction of the authentic performance. However, you don't need to think about that just listen, because the songs are really good. They somehow imperceptibly dissolve the exhaustion and habit of the routine and fill with the hope for joy.

Chorus named G. Veryovka. Koljadky ta dukhovni pisni. /digi-pack/. (Christmas Carols and Spiritual Songs)

As I have an acquaintance who works at the airport, I can confidently say: when flying away from Ukraine, people search for discs by exactly this Ukrainian collective, in fact, more frequently than any other ones. Whatever you might say, the National Choir named after G.Veryovka is a real, bright, original legend. Living.

Folklore group "Rodyna". Hej, Rozhestvo! Schedryj vechor! (Hey, Christmas! Christmas Eve!)

Christmas is such holiday that requires cleanliness and internal joy. Not that it requires, but otherwise it just becomes impossible, turns into a farce. Well, and to create the corresponding celebratory atmosphere, there is nothing better than special songs. Those that are already hundreds of years old.

Jdem koljaduvaty! Children Sing. Golden Collection. (We Go to Carol!)

I think that everyone who during the holiday has been visited by children who came to sing songs and receive a gift knows there is great pleasure and joy in these songs. Especially if they are sung not hit or miss, but well otherwise the celebratory mood may be spoilt a bit. As to this disk, you need not doubt here, everything is sung either well, or very well.

Khreshchatyk choir. Ukrainian wreath. Ukrainian Christmas songs.

A powerful tenderness may be, the first characteristic, the first impression was like that. It looks as if it were not so difficult to sing a song well, but to sing a well-known song in such a way that the attention will be turned to you from the very first moment it is already the skill...

KRUT. Live Concert With Chamber Orchestra. /digi-pack/.

..competent engagement of an orchestra virtually automatically adds volume but there are nuances. In this case, this is author material, an indie project constructed around the bandura (and the ambition is to make the bandura sound modern, not emasculated) moreover, from the very beginning KRUT has been tending towards crossovers in his style solutions..
Domestic price: 231.95UAH, International price: $21.28USD

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.

Georgiy Matviyiv. Exit.

The musical art of Georgiy Matviyiv is a great example of continuation of the kobzar traditions. Informal and innovational in the same time, his attitude to the instrument realized in authors plays for the bandura and in authors performance of these plays, describing ancient kobzars traditions of the attitude to bandura, as to a "loyal wife"...

Vasyl Zhdankin. Revelations. /digi-pack/

It is the voice of a soldier who has nothing to loose except the last life battle. And the fathers voice who lull the baby at night. And a voice of a man who can work and gets a real joy working and shares with this happiness. There is a mans nature in his sounding...
