Ukrainia aren’t your grandmother’s wedding dance band. Their music holds the old country passions, but their sound is clearly 21st century. Songs fuelled by the sweet breath of vodka are intense to the edge of mania. Their music will light your spirit, lift your body and transport you to another time in a surreal place – have your passports stamped, you are entering Ukrainia.
