Ukrainian Village Music Is A Gem!
Zoltan B. | Berkeley, CA United States | 08/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There will always be unappreciative and disappointed individuals in this world who will not take a liking to a fiddle. One reviewer bemoaned..."out of tune intruments", and "disturbing" music. Hmm. Perhaps the "reviewer" is out of tune...with the folk music genre. If the performers on this rare CD wanted to play perfect music perfectly, they would have joined the Mantovani Orchestra. Let's not forget that it sounded much better in a barn, than on a CD. The Ukrainian Village Music CD is a wonderful example of vintage Ukrainian folk music played at village weddings and other social occasions prior to WWII. The CD cover alone is worth the price - it puts to shame many "new wave" bands in terms of image. Worth grabbing before it goes out of print!"

"Being of Ukrainian descent, I was intrigued initially by the historical aspect of this CD, but concerned that the quality of the music might be disappointing. Was I wrong! This is great, foot-stomping Ukrainian folk music."

"True rural Ukrainian folk music is found in this CD! (Trendy British/Celtic folkies could learn a thing or two from these raw, foot stomping gems.) If you're looking for the huge orchestated sound, this is not for you. If you want to expose yourself to fiddle music for the people, pick this up!"
