As it is known, Poltavshyna is glorified not only by Sorochyntsi and the purest Ukrainian language. This region till now hardly not the richest on folklore songs. The proposed disc is called to show these riches, it is made brightly. Songs are sung by different collectives, but are equally qualitative. By the way, it is necessary to pay attention to work of collective "Drevo" (28, 29, 31). You already could hear its abilities, listening to Olexander Nesterov's album "Contaminated sounds". People which play authentic material whenever possible closer to the original, but pass it through a prism of music education. In this case songs get new paints.
