MUSIC: Svitlana Nianio - Kytytsi
Svitlana Nianio made her debut with Kyiv's Tsukor Bila Smert. Kytytsi is Svitlana's very first solo album. The aura of her voice and simplicity of her compositions suggest folk roots.
However, its base is in fact derived from musical avant-garde of today. Straight from the heart of ancient folk songs comes the tenderness in her voice; Svitlana frames it with sounds of pure New York minimal tradition. Deeply rooted in primeval myths, her music creates a world of magic realism, in which the temporal dimension and the other world constantly move and permeate.
