“I am being blown away by all this! I am just so happy to be here,” he said, out of breath, his voice trembling with excitement.

Mandry had just played on Kyiv’s European Square on Nov. 25 in front of a crowd protesting against the government’s Nov. 21 decision to suspend the country’s European integration drive. It was the fifth day of protests in Kyiv.

Musicians are key components of these events, a distraction from the bone-chilling weather and a welcome break from listening to politicians drone on, no matter how skilled their oratory.
In their ninth day as of Nov. 29, the EuroMaidan rallies have featured more than a dozen popular bands and singers. Plach Yeremii, Gaidamaky, Mandry, Motor’rola, Kozak System, Atmasfera, Maria Burmaka and Ot Vinta are among who have played at Maidan Nezalezhnosti and European Square – for free, they say.
