The PLATINA band was officially created in 2003. Though this is not an occasional or spontaneous phenomenon at contemporary stage. Long lasting hours of collaboration and inspiring, searching and experimenting favoured the appearing of such creative collective.
The idea of founding the band belongs to the guitarist Yuriy Kondratyuk. The band consists of experienced musicians who worked with famous Ukrainian performers (V. Pavlik, N. Mogilevska, Î. Ponomaryov, Ruslana).
As it turned out later, every musician dreamed about being a member of his or her own band and has been striving to his or her goal ror quite a long time. Owing to this fact there are friendly relationships inside the band, because each of them possess his or her own place. So what is PLATINA today? This is a constellation of five elements, five personalities.
