Default Ukrainian Music

Kvitka Cisyk was a Ukrainian American, died young. Her performance of older and folk songs was superb. Slight accent. Best soul ever.

This thread makes me think of The Ukrainians, a UK band of Ukrainian descent who played a mix of rock and traditional Ukrainian music. Pretty good stuff.

They are great, been loving them for years... saw them live. How about these covers (sung in Ukrainian)

Those are good stuff! Have you heard this Smith's cover from them?

yes you know their lyrics in Ukrainian have nothing to do with the originals. Especially patriotic lyrics in place of "shiny boots of leather" Very funny.

Some of my favorite bands, hope you enjoy these songs:

Mandry - song about a hill you'd better stay away from



VV - very popular in 90s, here's an existentialist song, still love it



Okean Elzy - one of the best, a song called "I won't give in without a fight"



Plach Yeremiyi - a folk song about going to war

These guys rose to internet fame (or shame, you be the judge ) three years ago with a couple of covers.


(they were on the news and there were even covers of this cover of the Katy Perry's song)


(original here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOzkN8dHnjk)

Recently they also covered Du Hast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5xSxGhlHfc
