Інформація з обкладинок:

A number of years have passed since Victor Mishalow’s last solo recording. Since then, many changes have taken place in the music world. This recording aims to capture new and different aspects of the bandura. Novel techniques are exploited, and different types of banduras are used. Melodically, although most of the material is based on traditional Ukrainian sources from the old Kobzar repertoire, some selections transcend into the modern. There is reference to current trends in world music, as well as new age, pop and even show tunes.

The following banduras are utilized: Lviv concert bandura (1988), Kharkiv-style bandura made by W. Vetzal (Canada), Kyiv-Kharkiv concert bandura made by I. Skliar (1967), Chernihiv concert bandura with nylon damping system made by I. Kezlia (1981), Chernihiv concert bandura with nylon strings and a Vetzal soundboard (1992), Kharkiv-style bandura made by Y. Pryjmak, Germany (1946) and renovated by W. Vetzal.

Bandurist Victor Mishalow was born in Sydney, Australia, and now resides in Toronto, Canada. He completed his music studies in Australia and Ukraine, specializing in Ukrainian music, language and education.
