Korinya aims to revitalize the older folk style of Ukrainian music and bring it to events, weddings and festivals in the larger Ukrainian/North American community.
The band presents Ukrainian folk music in a fresh, grassroots way. Listening to their music evokes the voices of the steppes, the cheerful melody of the sopilka, and the strong, soulful sound of the fiddle -- sounds that so represent their Ukrainian roots. They are proud to have won 1st place at the Boyko Festival (Ukraine) in 2012. Members include Sana Shepko (violin), Zoya Shepko (accordion), Alina Kuzma (vocals), Maria Pleshkevich (percussion), and Stefan Shepko (sopilka).
