Artists 2023 – N0. 6: US Orchestra
by Steffen Henkel
In full Ukrainska Selska Orchestra (meaning ‘Ukrainian Village Orchestra’), this trio plays traditional instrumental music found on field expeditions and in music archives. Their music restores traditional dances from central Ukraine’s Poltava Oblast (province), the Podíllya region in western Ukraine into Moldova, and the Ukrainian diaspora which settled in the States and Canada from the end of the nineteenth into the beginning of the twentieth century.
