Vassily Gerello, Favorite Ukranian Songs
maty moja (My Dear Mother)
The Ukrainian culture is remarkable for its rich musicality and wide variety of musical instruments, dances and songs. The fact that Ukraine was a multinational melting pot is clearly reflected in music, which absorbed influences both from East and West.
The lyric songs in this album are the real gems of Ukrainian music. They were created in the 19th century and just as in Russian songs and romances, they were performed so often that the names of their authors are mostly forgotten.
