The Ukes Orchestra
No small part of The Ukes Orchestra vast popularity is due to their ability to play and sing any song – and any kind of song – and make it sound better than it has ever sounded before. Whether it is a folk song from Ukraine, a favorite from the charts, a fine old classic or the newest popular number. The Ukes sound warms it with their own great personal charm.
None of the Ukes songs have greater appeal than their sentimental songs of country origin, sung & played the Ukes way The beauty of a country song lies in its simplicity in melody and lyrics. The Ukes Orchestra have the big voices of Michael Boyko and Vodohraj singers, and the good sound to sing and play a country song as it should be sung. With completely relaxed unforced sincerity, a sincerity that makes of its message a universal expression of love, or longing, or loneliness for your own country – Ukraine. This album features The Ukes favorite songs, their sentimental tribute to the beauty of Ukraine and Ukrainians all over the world.
