This event will be a part of a large-scale nationwide tour that will include over 20 cities in eight Canadian provinces all the way from the West to the East. Maryna will meet Ukrainians and Canadians in every corner of the country, unravel for them the beauty of Ukrainian song, thank them for their continuing support of Ukraine, and most importantly, raise funds to support Ukrainians on the front lines defending their country from the russian invasion.
KRUT will bring to Canada an unrivaled experience of the bandura, a native Ukrainian 65 string folk instrument. Her performances impress with the charm of her voice, heartfelt lyrics, and fabulous musical arrangements, creating a unique and inimitable sound.
Maryna Krut expresses a great joy and excitement about her first major tour of Canada, “My purpose is to introduce you to the incredible Ukrainian instrument, the bandura. I’m bringing you stories from Donetsk region and carols from Galychyna region in the West of Ukraine. We will immerse ourselves in the beauty of Ukrainian song; I will open the unique world of the bandura sound, unraveling it in a new way for each of you. The program will include Ukrainian carols and shchedrivkas, all time favorite songs and my original songs from various albums.”
Maryna regularly performs for Ukrainian military in the combat zones. Like no one else, she understands the importance of helping those who are risking their lives for the sake of their country’s independence and freedom. The singer will be carrying this message across Canada.
All concerts of the tour will also feature fundraising auctions. The proceeds will be combined and transferred to the “Second Front Ukraine Foundation” to support their project “Iron Birds for Ukraine” (https://secondfrontukraine.com/ironbirds) where it will be used to purchase drones for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Please come to enjoy the evening of beautiful Ukrainian music and support Ukrainian defenders during the time leading up to the 2nd anniversary of the full-scale war.
