Albums:

TaRuta. Narodzheni v LYUBOVI. /digi-pack/. (Born in LOVE)


11 tracks, but they are somehow so saturated and diverse that it may seem there are twice more of them. First, there are both author's and folk texts there – and some author's ones really resemble folk songs, this is a compliment.. And second – within one album, actually, three manners and ways of performing are mixed: skilful "folk" singing, powerful ethno-rock and the "acoustics"..

TaRuta. EthnoLab. /digi-pack/.


..what is specific: the core of the Ukrainian archaic material is not hidden, not disguised as it could be and as it has already happened. On the contrary, the foundation is very expressive, while all the rest – it is like pastel lighting. All those small sounds of country, rock, fusion, disco, club electronics – they are as if New Year decorations on a living tree...

TaRuta, Roman Kolyada. Nebesna sotnya / Celestial Hundred. (EP). /digi-pack/.


...it is a very brief statement. But – the theme of it does not require a lot of words, after all. The main thing was to say that with dignity, and they have succeeded. Concise in the form, rich in the semantic content, and bright in the music representation.

Songs:

Yevshanzillya 4. Rock Collection 2010. (mp3).


In 2010, following the tradition now, "Yevshanzillya" (already for the fourth year in succession) has become the first rock collection in the New Year. And, again as usual, the main focus is not on pop-rock and heavy alternative – as it happens in the majority of rock collections – but on a wide range of every other rock music.

Mlyn. All-Ukrainian Music Collection. /digi-pack/. (Mill)


...However, they thus somehow fit into the concept of "ethno-rock" – but nevertheless the entire picture comes out very colorful. And – it is nice that within the same style one can hear so diverse, unconventional, brilliant music.

Tanya Sha, MuzBat. Neskoreny ProRock. Olena Teliha. /songbook+CD/. (Unsubdued ProRock. Olena Teliha)


(this edition is an exclusive thing, and you cannot buy it. But you can get it as a present). – The emotionality, tension, and passion of Teliha's poetic language impress and attract. Moreover, her experience is inscribed in urban landscapes, everything seems to be happening right now and to you personally.. – Tanya Sha

MuzBat. Neskoreny ProRock. Taras Shevchenko. /songbook+CD/. (Unsubdued ProRock. Taras Shevchenko)


(this edition is an exclusive thing, and you cannot buy it. But you can get it as a present). – Shevchenko will surprise you: rock fits his poems wonderfully, it is also his element. Moreover, the rock music element fits naturally to Shevchenko's words: they are just as stubborn and rebellious..
