Ukrainian Songs from a Taiga Village
This article presents field recordings of songs from the Ukrainian song tradition of the Khmelnitskii region. The songs were preserved by the gifted singer Anna Ivanovna Kuyava (Bernot) born in 1930 and living more than 60 years in the village of Tagna, in the Zalarinskii district, Irkustk province, Siberia. The singer’s repertoire includes a wide range of genres. The performances preserve the original modal features and rich melismata of Ukrainian folk song. Originally published in Zhivaya Starina, 2022.
