In an attempt to help the relief efforts, the albums made in collaboration with Ukrainian musicians, namely the Astarta/Edwin and EDK releases (and others forthcoming.…) are now available on a new Bandcamp page set up specifically to raise funds for the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal here: AEAppeal.bandcamp.com
As well as raising funds, it’s important that Ukrainian music, perhaps lesser known outside the country, is able to reach as many people as possible, in order to present an example of something positive from Ukraine, and to let the wider world know that Ukrainians posses a distinct and rich culture of their own, so therefore everything will be available on a “pay as you like” basis, and will remain so, but I would like to encourage everyone who can, to please make a donation to aid the humanitarian efforts.
The war in Ukraine is destroying the lives of many people, and the musicians we’ve made these recordings with have, along with many of their compatriots, had their lives completely upended, so please share, tweet, download, donate.
The bulk of these recordings are based around traditional folk forms and melodies, passed from one generation to the next, long may they continue to do so......
Featured Musicians: Inna Kovtun, Yulia Malyarenko, Eduard "Dilya" Prystupa, Bogdan Kerichok, levgen Zharinov, with Colin Edwin, Jon Durant, Steve Bingham, Pat Mastelotto, Roberto Gualdi
