Albums:

Molotov 20, Marta Shpak. Osiayni. The modern treatment of traditional Ukrainian folk music. /digi-pack/. (Enlighted)


Rhythms of "Osiayni" bewitch with their soft, silent pace. Marta, in her turn, also obviously appears here not by chance. Her voice has a very interesting feature it somehow inexplicably combines in itself the past and the future. It seems to be native and somehow not from here.
Domestic price: 306.60UAH, International price: $21.90USD

Marta Shpak. Na svitanku. /digi-pack/. (At Dawn)


"At Dawn" by the way, Marta's first solo album is a moderate option for the combination of folklore and variety art. Actually, folklore motifs are woven into the music here and ethnic connotations often loom through the performance manner as well.
Domestic price: 194.60UAH, International price: $13.90USD
