Ever wish Christmas carols were a little bit more exciting?

You’re in luck. This week several Ukrainian rock and jazz stars invite you to a Christmas after-party with Christmas carols as you’ve never heard them.

The Lviv group “Dyvni” and Taras Chubay from the band “Plach Yeremiyi” headline a musical event that takes original Ukrainian carols and turns them around, using new instruments, styles and arrangements. Some songs are accompanied by a simple acoustic guitar, others by a full orchestra.

Apart from traditional and musicians’ own original Ukrainian carols in new arrangements, the concert will feature lyrical songs about winter. Hopefully, the concert will be something of a compensation for the lack of snow and other types of fun associated with a real winter.

Wed, Jan. 15, 6 p.m., Dom Hudozhnika, 1-5 Artema St., tickets: Hr 80 – 120.
