Over the last two weeks, we have made a number of changes to the Songs of Truth website: you can now visit the ‘Songs’ pages to read Julian Kytasty’s lively program notes for the Songs of Truth CD, read up on the history of the bandura and the kobzar tradition under ‘The Bandura’, meet our project contributors under ‘About’, and learn more about Julian’s many musical and theatrical projects and collaborations under ‘Julian Kytasty’. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, look up the instructional materials under ‘Resources’ and learn to play the bandura yourself!
Take a look at our new Songs pages! We’ve added transcriptions of the lyrics – in Ukrainian – with poetic translations created by Julian Kytasty. We’ll continue adding more content to the website in the coming weeks and months, including detailed notes about the histories and significances of each song, as well as the bandura and kobzar traditions and practices. Stay tuned!
