Following on from their critically acclaimed long-running instrumental collaboration Burnt Belief, Colin Edwin and Jon Durant have joined forces once again, this time with pre-eminent Ukrainian vocalist Inna Kovtun. The trio have drawn on their past influences and experiences to blend seemingly unrelated musical environments, including traditional Ukrainian and Slavic folk elements, modern electronica, Progressive Rock, and a range of deep atmospherics and dreamy ambient textures. The resulting album shares occupies an ethereal territory akin to the likes of Dead Can Dance or even The Cocteau Twins, and to Western ears, the unfamiliar vocalisations provide a compelling thread throughout.

Legendary band The Wedding Present release their ‘The Complete The Ukrainians BBC – John Peel Sessions’. The release include all three John Peel sessions re-mastered for the first time along with booklet + new sleeve artwork designed by original artist Jonathan Hitchen. With regular singer David Gedge relegated to guitar and backing vocals, Liggins takes centre-stage on vocal duties. His sonorous Ukrainian vocals on ‘Cherez Richku, Cherez Hai’ combined with Solowka’s edgy guitar make for an exciting mix of Ukrainian and Western musical styles, and is something of a reference point for a genre of music which now exists in Ukrainian communities around the World. The band still write and record their own style of Ukrainian music today, releasing eight studio albums and have toured all over Europe and in North America. The Wedding Present continued with David Gedge at the helm and they have gone on to become one of the UK’s most longstanding and much-loved indie bands, with eighteen British top fourty hit singles to their name. Not bad for a group that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry’s game. The band released their ninth studio album, ‘Going, Going…’, to critical acclaim in 2016.

Valentin Silvestrov composed Requiem for Larissa between 1997 and 1999 as a memorial to his wife, musicologist Larissa Bondarenko, who died in 1996. It is a big and unceasingly somber work, scored for chorus and orchestra. Understandably, this Requiem is to a degree reflective, incorporating musical themes drawn from older works that had special meaning to the couple. While Silvestrov's typically glacial tempos are in evidence here, some of the opening half of the piece has an angular spikiness that recalls serial techniques without actively engaging in them. Instrumentally, Requiem for Larissa is dark, atmospheric, and even a little cinematic; the choral parts are sparse and minimally applied. In the fourth-movement Largo, the voices take over and settle down into an ethereal texture that leavens the gloom somewhat, but by this time 25-and-a-half minutes have gone by and some listeners will have already tuned out owing to the toughness of the opening section.Requiem for Larissa is an intensely personal piece performed with respect and care by the Ukrainian National Chorus and Symphony Orchestra under conductor Vladimir Sirenko.

Ukranian band Obiymy Doschu was formed in 2004, with Kiev as their base of operations. Their first full-length production, "Elehia," was initially issued in 2009, and one year later the two-track single "Svitanok" appeared. In late spring of 2011 the band signed to the Russian label MALS Records, which reissued their initial album for an international audience, with the title track from the 2010 single added as a bonus feature. If you can imagine dark, melancholic music that utilizes details from classical and folk music to flavor a blend of acoustic rock and doom metal within a framework set inside the art rock universe, then you're pretty close to what Obiymy Doschu is all about.

Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov (b.1937) is an important contemporary voice in vocal music. In this new release, Silvestrov’s hauntingly beautiful vocal works are performed by the Latvian Radio Choir under their director Sigvards Kļava. During his artistic career, Silvestrov has explored a number of musical styles and techniques, such as avant-guard, post-modernism, neo-classicism, dodecaphony, aleatoric writing and pointillism. The fall of the Soviet Union, however, allowed Silvestrov to eventually compose spiritual works, inspired and influenced by his love of the Russian Orthodox Church music which Silvestrov imbues with his own unique sound and bursts of surprising harmonic moves. Silvestrov’s compositions are invested with the composer’s own unique personality, musical sensibility and sense of beauty.
