Bandura music site

If you're looking for bandura music, a great place to start is at The Kytasty Foundation.

The Kytasty Foundation was established in 2001 to continue the work and honor the memories of Hryhory Kytasty and Dr. Victor Kytasty. The mission of the foundation is to provide an educational resource of Ukrainian culture by creating and maintaining a permanent online library of freely available and downloadable literature, music, and history.

It is a treasure trove of downloadable mp3s, music scores including pdfs of original manuscripts, historical documents and biographical information on bandura maestro Hryhory Kytasty (1907-1984).

Any time spent there will be most enjoyable ... and enlightening!

Many thanks to Irena Bell, host of the Ukrainian Program on CHIN Radio Ottawa, for sharing this treasure.

Dr. Victor Kytasty was a good man. As head of the America House Library in Kyiv, he greatly contributed to my self-education. I can never thank him enough for helping Ukrainians like me to acquire the knowledge with which to defy the tyranny of place.
