The award-winning band Odyn v kanoe was formed in L’viv, Ukraine in 2010. They have been critically celebrated as the ‘fresh blood of Ukrainian music’ with a ‘sincere, pure’ sound and philosophy. The group has invigorated many traditional Ukrainian and Slavonic poems with their music. This concert in Cambridge marks their British debut.

The event is part of our Sixth Annual Vsesvit Evening, which consists of musical performances and literary readings of texts in the original language(s) and in English and Ukrainian translation. The Vsesvit Evening celebrates the mission of the journal Vsesvit (The Universe), the oldest active literary journal in Ukraine. Founded in 1925 by Oleksandr Dovzhenko, Vasyl Blakytnyi and Mykola Khvylovyi, the journal has translated over 4,000 works from 98 literatures into the Ukrainian language.

This talk is part of the Slavonic Studies series.
