Run. Over the Border.

All those who have already had an occasion to listen to the first album of the "Run" group, but have not yet listen to the new album – you no longer know the "Run" group. Something has changed. This "something" is difficult to catch with words, but the perception is very clear – it seems the "Run" has indeed stitched through not one border, and not a single customs service was an obstacle to them (maybe, this time, artists were on duty there, not customs officers?), and not a single heart was superfluous... Therefore, stop hustling, during the next hour only music should be heard – light live flow in the boundless air – only it. In the world, certainly, there are quite a lot of people who play Celtic music – and even more say that they play it. But not everyone is able, having taken a correct basis, to correctly invest his or her own breathing into it – so that the harmony really came to life. "Run" – you will hear that yourself – taught their music not simply breathing. It sings and flies, it dances lightly, as only joy can dance – and real joy is not afraid of either sorrow, or a dream. For everything passes by, but for the heart, everything disappears, but for clear eyes – we only have salt left as a memory about the north, we only have apple-tree blossom left...

Marinita. Marinita. /digi-pack/.

Marinita is, in fact, Maryna Zakharova, who was the heart of the very original project Anno Domini. So, Marinita is a certain development to the story, testing herself in a new, even more open format: with the opportunity to collaborate without any special linking to a certain composition. The debut album under the new name...

Yuriy Kovtun. BraviBelli.

...the album at once creates elated, festive mood – but in a surprising way. In the correct way. Because, although about a half of the compositions can hardly be called merry ones – a smile is very expressly felt in them. Somewhere dim, somewhere transparent, somewhere dreamy, somewhere thoughtful – but it is present in each piece, and it warms.

Olexa Kabanov. Ambrelyre. Polyphonic wheel lyre.

Far not every musician is able to breathe in real life into age-old instruments, to let them sound brightly, deeply – not with glass strasses, but with jewels. Olexa Kabanov, no doubt, is. In his performance traditional melodies sound as if they did not have hundreds of years behind their back – to that extent they are live, close, and warm.

The Sokalsky Quartet. Koljady. (Christmas Carols)

You will come across Christmas carols of France, England, Wales, Sweden, Austria, the USA, Spain, Germany here – honestly speaking, the very list inspires respect. Moreover, all the songs are performed in original languages – and this is, you should agree, a piece of work. And it was worth it...

Folk Instrumental Orchestra of the International Culture & Art Centre Kyiv. Melodies Known Worldwide.

This is a masterly and harmonious performance of a great orchestra consisting of real masters, which is rated highly not only in Ukraine, but far beyond its bounds.

World known dances.

The name of a disc speaks for itself. Here are hopak, sirtaki, lezginka, hava-nagila. Executed on a synthesiser, these melodies are intended rather not for domestic listening, but for use at lessons of dances, or in the dramatised performances or concerts at school or kindergarten.

Olexa Kabanov. Wind from the Orient.

It seems that every musician who follows the way of self-perfection early or late faces the music culture of the East – and gets penetrated with it. In the end, it is difficult to stay indifferent to this beauty. Thus, the only thing left is to let it in, let it through and – let it go. Evidently, Olexa succeeded in it – you will hear that yourself.

Er.J.Orchestra. The Unicorn. (remastered). /digi-pack/.

This is the third album in the official discography of Er.J.Orchestra. And I really hope that it will be not a stop, not completion of the trilogy, but one of the many pearls on the thread. Such music simply must be incarnated, sound, fill the space – at least because honest beauty, dignity, authenticity live in it...

Run. Samhein. /digi-pack/

Samhein is the time beyond time, the few days absent from the calendar, the moment when our world collides with the other one, when spirits of the deceased descend from the hills and wander freely among the living. These are the last days for gathering crops, the time of the year's sum-up, the time to regain peace with yourself and with the world around you...

Ghurt YoGhurt. real live album.

Still everyone who is not indifferent to the Western musical tradition in its pro-Celtic variations. Having heard this album. I think. Will not be. Frustrated.

CoMaha (Maria Hmeleva). Nizhnist'. (Tenderness)

"CoMaha" is a project by Maria Hmeljova, the flutists of the group "YoGhurt" (actually, the other magicians from this music family did not stay aside either). And, you know, it is infrequent that one comes across such fragile, delicate music. And here everything is at its place, everything is transparent and sunny...

Исполнение прекрасное, но, ИМХО, немного подвела аппаратура и непогашенное эхо. Прошлый альбом, "Kid on the Mountain", лучше по качеству звука, я его даже сперва приняла за родной ирландский. Но ничего, в целом твердая четверка с плюсом, ждем добавки.

"Рун" и их музыка - просто Чудо! Эти музыканты, наверное, настоящие эльфы из прекрасной Ирландии и Шотландии... Вы дарите своим слушателям Сказку. Какое счастье, что вы есть. Низкий Вам поклон от благодарных слушателей.
