Ukrainian music website

Aleksey Zakharenko from Kyiv, and webmaster of the OrigenMusic website, recently sent me a bunch of fabulous Ukrainian music CDs that will be getting airplay on Nash Holos in the weeks ahead.

Very professional, high-calibre musicianship and a fairly eclectic musical variety, ranging from lost songs of Ukrainian villagers to New Age opera. He is also a liturgical music expert (Ukrainian and Russian). Apparently, some of his church bell tracks have been used in recent Hollywood movies.

The website is in English ... the translations are a tad choppy, but comprehensible enough for the "Ukrainian-impaired" visitor to be able to browse the site comfortably and come away with more historical knowledge and order a CD or two!
