Take note – story published 1 year ago

The acclaimed vocal group 'Latvian Voices' has released a beautiful and emotional rendition of a traditional Ukrainian folk song on its YouTube channel.

The choir teams up with Ukrainian soloist Maria Savenko to sing "Ой, полечко - поле" (Oh, little field). It was recorded at the Latvian National Library and comes with an invitation to other vocal groups around the world to do likewise.

Dear a cappella community all around the world,
We invite you to join us in the movement of solidarity with Ukraine and its music. Choose a song from Ukrainian music, sing it, make a video and share it.
We have a voice, and now is the time to speak up! Speak up for Ukraine, for democracy, humanity and unity. A cappella stands with Ukraine. Latvian Voices are honoured to perform together with Maria Savenko from Ukraine.
Here is Maria's story: I am from Donetsk, Ukraine. Now it is a dark time for my country because Russia invaded our land. And one of the cultural weapons is Ukrainian song. This song is devoted to all warriors who fell while defending Ukraine.
