“Vesna” (Spring) is the name of this project devised by Mariana Sadovska, Christian Thomé and Markus Braun. In their music, Ukrainian singing, archaic sounds and instruments are played in contemporary styles, engaging in a dialogue between past and future, East and West, acoustic instruments and electronic sounds. Questions of origins and identity, freedom and future, of youth, grief, hope and love have always been at the core of these age-old song lyrics. Through the fullscale invasion of Ukraine, they have been introduced into our present times with a new sense of topicality.
