Kosmc'ki muzyky. Ukrainian ethnic music. (The Kosmach Musicians)

There exist Tibetan monks in this world who travel, relate, show and perform their Tibetan music. By any chance, have you ever heard them performing? If you have, probably you will be surprised with this recording, since the distance between the Tibet and the Carpathian Mountains is so big, but still the music of these regions has something in common, even something allied. The question is where from? Yet, on the other hand, both are mountains, and it means that they are closer to the sky. As you know, in the sky the roots grow and communicate according to their own laws, which are not at all earthly. That is why all that is not surprising. Quite different things should be surprising why people can seldom find a common language. Immediately one of the answers appears since when you communicate with the help of words, practically always there is something fallacious and incomplete present in this communication. It happens because every person has his or her personal thesaurus in his or her head. And one of the decisions may be heard right now because music is nearly the most universal language among all human and non-human languages. This is not even a theorem; it is simply a fact, and frankly speaking, a joyful fact. Its joy lies not in the hope for a possible harmonious communication, but in the fact that this communication exists now and keeps on existing. You should only see it. Or, to be exact, to hear. To feel.

Anton Jozhik Leyba (Hedgehog)
