THE VOICES OF UKRAINE
Our of the depth of Ukrainian music comes the voice of Ana Kargaltseva, who this day may be fleeing with the other people of Ukraine. I recorded her voice earlier in her career. The song she sings has to do with the moon… “Moon Don’t Shine.” (Click on each audio to hear songs. All sung in Ukrainian)
Her next song is one that is typical of the lively Ukrainian music, “The Violin is Playing in the Street.”
“The Kozak Wedding” is a steering melody with male voices.
“My Lovely Land” is a sad reminder that Ukraine was a beautiful place until the bombs fell.
ENGLISH WORDS TO THE UKRAINIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM
The glory and freedom of Ukraine has not yet perished
Luck will still smile on us brother-Ukrainians.
Our enemies will die, as the dew does in the sunshine,
and we, too, brothers, we’ll live happily in our land.
We’ll not spare either our souls or bodies to get freedom
and we’ll prove that we brothers are of Kozak kin.
