Just came across this lovely video showcasing the splendours of Ukraine.
The few typos and oddly translated idioms ("dissolve into meadows" and "inhale a gulp of fresh air") only enhance the charm of the outstanding videography ... and music.
The group btw is called Stelsi and I hope they'll agree to send me some of their awesome music to share on the show.
The video was made in 2008, the year that I visited Ukraine with my mom, two sisters and two nieces. Now I am feeling very nostalgic about that trip, so maybe this is the time to revisit it and share the rest of my memories here.
I also recorded some live music at a restaurant we visited in Kyiv by a group called Cheremosh. Unfortunately they have no website or CDs, but I can tell you they were terrific! And I can share their music with listeners of Nash Holos. :-)
So much to blog, so little time! But, I'll try my best to keep up and bring it all to you in good time.
In the meantime, enjoy the video!
