Чом трава зелена (Why is the Grass Green)
"Kоли слухаєш такі гарні пісні із закордону, то наша Українська пісня ніколи незабудиться!!!"
This collection of 16 traditional and original Ukrainian songs was inspired by my grandfather Gregory, and the deep devotion he felt towards his Ukrainian heritage. The traditional folk songs are favorite melodies that he recalled from his childhood home. The four songs that he wrote at age 92 will always be a precious gift to us. We dedicate this album to my grandfather's memory, and to those that gave their lives for the freedom of Ukraine.
