British group The Ukrainians release CD in Ukraine

British ethno-punk band The Ukrainians presented their latest (4th) album Respublika in Ukraine on March 3.

This group, a favourite on Nash Holos, is known for taking Ukrainian music mainstream. Their self-titled first album was released in 1991 and the song Oy Divchyno made it to the top of the British pop charts. They travelled to Ukraine in 1993 and performed at Maidan Nezalezhnosti.

The new album consists of Ukrainian folk songs remastered by the band, as well as some lively covers of Sex Pistols tracks. Ukrainian music lovers can purchase it at www.umka.com.ua and select retail outlets in Kyiv and elsewhere.
