- Hudaki Village Band, Music from the Heart of Ukraine
- The Hudaki Village Band is made up of nine master musicians from the Ukrainian Carpathians. In the Maramures region, a mountainous area of Southwest Ukraine on the border with Romania and Hungary, village musicians are called hudaki. Various ethnic musical influences make the traditional music multifaceted and unique.Archaic Slavic vocal traditions, Romanian melodies, Jewish rhythms and Romany temperament blend together in a local cross culture that has evolved over centuries of living side by side. In 20 years of performing at hundreds of festivals and concert halls across Europe, the band has learned to make their ancient music accessible to the uninitiated. They have played the most prestigious festivals in Hungary, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Belgium, France, and elsewhere. The members are Kateryna Yarynych (vocal), Olha Senynets (vocal, ütögardon), Vitaliy Kovach (vocal, guitar), Mykhailo Shutko (vocal, violin), Volodymyr Tishler (double bass), Serhiy Kovach (accordion, plonka), Volodymyr Korolenko (cymbalom), Vasyl Rushchak (drums, percussion), Yuri Bukovynets (clarinet, taragot, flutes).
