Ukrainian Village Voices

Musical Group, Board Member (web & digital)

UVV sings in the polyphonic village style and its repertoire is constantly evolving, frequently focusing on seasonal celebrations, ritual songs, as well as lyrical music. We often sing songs recorded by ethnomusicologists from the oldest dwellers of villages in Ukraine. 
Since 2013, the ensemble has performed for a wide range of audiences in the New York metropolitan area and other locales in New York State, as well as in Canada. Venues have ranged from folk music and seasonal festivals to museums, theaters, libraries, community centers, church halls, and sidewalk, park, radio and webcast concerts. UVV has been featured at Brooklyn Folk FestivalZlatne Uste Golden Festival, Roots n' Ruckus Fest, and Saint George Ukrainian Festival. [Performance CV here]
