See Dunai at the Toronto Ukrainian Festival

Here's a sneak peek of what Dunai may have in store for you this coming weekend at the Toronto Ukrainian Festival.

They're playing a traditional Ukrainian folksong, Yikhaly Kozaky (Їхали Козаки), actually quite a gruesome and tragic tale played in a very upbeat polka style ... which is the norm for this song btw.

Well, who said Ukrainians don't have a sense of humour? OK it can be somewhat twisted at times but, what they hey. If you can't laugh what's the point of being alive?

For the Ukrainian-impaired, they give the plotline in English before they start playing.
