The Kubasonics’ new CD “Kubfunland” takes listeners on a wild ride through a variety of musical styles and textures.
The repertoire draws on a wealth of Ukrainian traditional material ranging from centuries old chants, ritual dance melodies, songs of love and of troubled relationships, toe-tapping party music, and even a set of Newfoundland dance tunes. All are given a refreshingly new interpretation in the Kubasonics’ arrangements. Top-notch musicianship combined with the sounds of an array of exotic folk instruments result in a unique sonic blend.
