UHEC Presents: Ukrainian Music of Summer
Join us for this exploration of summer cycle folk songs of Ukraine and learn about other summer traditions, including wreath-making. We are fortunate to have Zoya and Sana Shepko of the Korinya: Ukrainian Folk Band, who will share their interpretations of Ukrainian summer songs. Their mother, Halyna Shepko, will show how to make a wreath from summer field flowers.
Zoya and Sana Shepko are sisters that grew up with Ukrainian music as part of their childhood. Starting a family band in 2005, which later developed into a young, contemporary folk band Korinya: Ukrainian Folk Band. Korinya has performed several times in Ukraine, and in 2012 earned the title of National Artists of Ukraine by winning 1st place at the Boyko Festival.
