 We began a series of concerts of Ukrainian music in Körber Stiftung in Hamburg, presenting the legend - Eugene Efremov and ensemble DREVO! Main feeling - gratitude. The next stop with dear DREVO and DYVYNA  during a festival in Norway on July 6-7. Among other things, we raised 805 Euros for a new violin (instead of the one destroyed by the war) for Serhiy Okhrimchuk. Thank you alll We conitue to resists!

The first musician I met in Germany and with whom later created the Borderland project, was composer and pianist Jarry Singla. Jarry,  Christian Ramond, were between the first artists-friends , who immediately responded to our call for solidarity, supporting us during the demonstrations, sending donations to the army, playing many charity concerts.
And now Jarry did offer to dedicate the concert-presentation of his project „Eastern Flowers" during the Representation of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia to the European Union in Brussels, to the Solidarity with Ukraine event. Proposed and organized.
Thanks to Jarry, I was able to mention by name the artists who, instead of performing and creating, are fighting for all of us. Who stay in Ukraine and defend our freedom.During the concert we did rise  1087,50 Euro cash and more than 1000 were  transferred to my account. Thank you!

We will not stop! Ukrainе is resisting! Till the victory!

Freie Akademie der Künste

Zwei Frauen aus Lwiw – die Schriftstellerin Natalka Sniadanko und die Musikerin Mariana Sadovska sind für einen gemeinsamen Benefiz-Abend mit Musik und Literatur zu Gast in der Akademie. In ihrem 2021 übersetzten Generationenroman Der Erzherzog, der den Schwarzmarkt regierte, Matrosen liebte und mein Großvater wurde (Haymon Verlag, Innsbruck) schließt die ukrainische Schriftstellerin Natalka Sniadanko die unterschiedlichen historischen Epochen, die die Ukraine prägen, eindrucksvoll kurz. Erzählend springt sie zwischen Lwiw und Wien, zwischen der Habsburger Monarchie, der Sowjetunion und unserer Gegenwart hin und her. Im März musste Sniadanko die Ukraine mit ihren Kindern zusammen verlassen. Derzeit ist sie Gastautorin im Deutschen Literaturarchiv Marbach. Sadovska lebt bereits seit 20 Jahren in Köln.

In ihren energiegeladenen Programmen verarbeitet sie verschiedenste Einflüsse zu – wie sie sie selbst bezeichnet – “trans­tra­di­tio­neller” Musik. Sie ist durch ukrainische Dörfer gefahren, um alte Lieder zu finden und jüdische Orte aufzusuchen. Ihre Kompositionen sind ebenso von traditioneller Musik aus der Ukraine inspiriert wie von modernen internationalen Klängen. Nun treffen sich die beiden Künstlerinnen, die schon oft miteinander gearbeitet haben, wieder, um zu lesen, zu singen und über die aktuelle Lage in der Ukraine zu sprechen.

 

Moderation: Jan Bürger Natalka Sniadanko wurde 1973 in Lwiw geboren. Sie studierte dort und in Freiburg i. Br., übersetzt aus dem Deutschen und Polnischen und zählt seit ihrem Debütroman Sammlung der Leidenschaften (2001) zu den bekanntesten ukrainischen Schriftstellerinnen ihrer Generation. Mariana Sadovska kam 1972 ebenfalls in Lwiw zur Welt. Sie wurde bekannt als Sängerin und Komponistin, die auf virtuose Weise traditionelle ukrainische Musik mit internationalen musikalischen Strömungen verbindet.

I just say THANK YOU

Allianz Kulturstiftung and Outernational in cooperation with Akademie der Künste Berlin and inm - initiative neue musik berlin e.V. are organizing a solidarity concert for Ukraine: Our thoughts are with all the sufferers of this war - inside and outside the country. Because the war against Ukraine is at the same time a war against Europe. The focus of the evening is the Outernational project "Songs of Wounding" with the Ukrainian singer Mariana Sadovska. In an extensive research, the singer and performer has made audio recordings in Ukrainian villages, exploring various singing techniques forgotten in the collective memory.Composer Max Andrzejewski has set these to new music in close dialogue with Sadovska. In addition, singers Viktoria Leléka and Ganna Gryniva will perform Ukrainian songs. Accompanying the musical part, literary and artistic voices from the region and Germany will set an example of cross-border solidarity. Among others, the author Navid Kermani will be present.

This will be followed by a discussion between Berlin's Senator for Culture Klaus Lederer, the conductor and activist Vitali Alekseenok and Esra Kücük, Managing Director of the Allianz Cultural Foundation, on funding and support opportunities for artists in exile.

Due to the health situation, I canceled my trip to America yesterday. Performances with dearest Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble singers in San Francisco, collaboration with dearest Elsa MenendezJuli Hendren in Albuquerque and a big charity concert at the Metropolitan Museum together with dearest Due to the health situation, I canceled my trip to America yesterday. Performances with dearest KITKA singers in San Francisco, collaboration with dearest friends in Albuquerque and a big charity concert at the Metropolitan Museum together with dearest Maria SonevytskyEva Salina, Julian Kytasty and Frank London were planned. I hoped to continue raising funds to support the Ukrainian army, and the Metropolitan Museum will be raising funds to support museums in Ukraine. All this will happen without me this time. But I will step out only for a moment - I will regain strength and with double energy I will continue to fight against the Ruzzian evil. Until the victory! After all, at the level of friends and at the political level, America still supports Ukraine in such an incredible way! This is especially touching, knowing how American artists suffered during the pandemic…. And here in Germany it is necessary to continue „beating this rock“ - what I will do tomorrow in Hamburg together with dear Natalka Sniadanko! Join us !!!!!
