We have collected the best heritage of the Ukrainian culture, real popular hits in order to reconsider them today in a new way. Our talented vocalists, ballet dancers and choir, accompanied by the orchestra, have taken part in the concert.

If we remember who we are, our roots, we have the future. The connection from the past to the future,  from authenticity, nationality, as we sing “Oh, on Ivan Kupala” in my arrangement and in the adaptation of Kryzhanivsky, and through this prism of nationality, through our roots to the present, to the popular popular song “, – emphasizes Sergiy Didok the conductor-producer.
