A Carpathian Folk Ensemble
Sat Aug 5, 2006
Folk melodies of the Carpathian region are brought to life by the virtuoso playing of Cheres. The musical arsenal of cimbalom, violins, bass, flutes, accordion, panpipe, double pipe and a variety of other percussion are complimented by the traditional, hand-embroidered garments worn by people in Western Ukraine.
"The music of the Carpathian Ukrainians is fiery, energetic and boisterous, and the musicians of the Cheres Ukrainian Folk Ensemble gave it everything they've got. Their performance of Hutsul and Bukovynian melodies - with a Hungarian czardas and a Romanian hora thrown in for good measure - drew exultant cheers from Town Hall spectators." --Helen Smindak of The Ukrainian Weekly, reviewing a 2003 performance
