Telnyuk Sisters

In contemporary Ukrainian music Halyna and Lesya Telnyuk have unique status. Critics have qualified the artists' work as "a breath of fresh air", "a tonic against dispair", and "a mystery play of word and music", appropriately terming them "the last bastion of true poetry and music in the domain of the contemporary Ukrainian song". The Telnyuk Sisters' concerts represent unique literary-musical compositions, a synthesis of poetry and song.

They feature accomplished standing and explore wide-ranging concerns, such as the place of the poet in totalitarian society, internal freedom as a prerequisite for creativity, the question of a search for oneself, for a sence of being: The concert-goer is emmerced into an extraordinary atmosphere, as thought she/he were present at some esoteric happening for those who are privy to a secret, yet at the same time is left with the feeling of being part of a circle of good friends. This is the result of the delicate and sincere dialogue that the duet conducts with their audience.

The sisters are called "dissidents of show-business" and "banished princesses". They insist on poetry for their lyrics and (unlike the predominant practice) prefere "live" performances, maintaing high aesthetic and professional standards and principles. The audience has responded warmly to the musical stance declared by the Telnyuk Sisters. Their concerts in Ukraine always draw capacity crowds.

Members of the band:

Halya Telnyuk - vocal
Lesya Telnyuk - vocal, bandura, keyboards
Oleg de Putyatin - bass-guitar, guitar, percussion
Roman Surzha - guitar
Ivan Nebesny - keyboards
Mykola Tomasyshyn - drums

Albums:

Telnyuk Sisters. Tysha i Grim. (Silence and thunder)


Cheerful mixture of jazz, rock. But the main thing is that this album is an integral work of art which blazes and cherishes, embraces and pushes, enervates and inspires.
Domestic price: 498.30UAH, International price: $45.30USD

Telnyuk Sisters. Nazavzhdy. Bohdan-Ihor Antonych. (single). /digi-pack/ (Forever)


I will not thoroughly describe the recording for you because I consider it pure beauty. It will show you everything itself about tenderness, melancholy, and an insight, and the indescribable silence of words pronounced and it will condemn none. Let it be so.
Domestic price: 124.08UAH, International price: $11.28USD

Telnyuk Sisters. REHEARSAL (studio video project). (DVD).


The term "rehearsal" in this case it is about its special meaning: video recording of a studio "main run-through" to which musicians, as a rule, invite their buddies and friends. With this initiative "Telnyuk: Sisters" have finalized their work with the project "Yellow Dandelion". The full stop, the first puff of the wind and the seeds fly out into the world..
Domestic price: 175.12UAH, International price: $15.92USD

Telnyuk Sisters. Live at the Glenn Gould Studio. /Road of Glass/. (DVD-r).


An ingeniously simple idea implemented in an impeccably polished form that's what it is. Now, it is only Lesya and Halya from the previous project composition who remain and three celloists have joined. Months of daily (!) rehearsals hence the incredible cohesion. But it is not only about the form and performance...
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Telnyuk Sisters, National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. Nash Shevchenko. /DVD/. (Our Shevchenko)


The concert film "Our Shevchenko" is not a kind of a formal tribute. It looks like the thunderous silence of an inner challenge in the search for truth. The severe, exacting truth, often inconvenient, incompatible with the comfortable habit of ignoring what destroys the calm, makes one realize one's own limits and, perhaps, go beyond them.
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Songs:

Vasyl Stus. (and others). Zhyvyj holos Vasylia Stusa. (The live voice of Vasyl Stus)


..Why is this disc so interesting? First of all, the voice of Stus himself sounds at it as he recites his own poems. Poems, recited by an author aloud always differ from an authors poems recited by us, who are not authors, in their sounding and intonations..
Domestic price: 152.90UAH, International price: $13.90USD

Mazepa fest. Poltava 2008.


This one is a really powerful record the best of the series. And, definitely, one of the best rock albums in general for the last couple of months. Besides, it presents a number of songs that havent had any official release yet thats exclusive!
Domestic price: 102.30UAH, International price: $9.30USD

Novyy zvuk etnichnoji Ukrajiny. (New Sound of the Ethnic Ukraine)


This collection, on the large account, is a successor of the popular series "Nova Ukrajina. The Best" a deserved successor. Based on the title, the disc "New Sound of the Ethnic Ukraine" should comprise pieces by the performers whose creativity has a perceptible influence of the Ukrainian folklore either in lyrics or in music. Basically, that is a sort of that.
Domestic price: 163.90UAH, International price: $14.90USD

The Best Ukrainian Ballads. P.3.


See yourself what a wide styles palette is offered by the collection: pop-rock, reggae, art-rock, hip-hop, folk-rock, heavy blues, post-rock... Nevertheless, the disc looks integral there is a certain inner line that truly unites, links such, seemingly, different approaches to creativity.
