Some of the Ukraine’s most established artists, together with musicians from abroad, travel across the country sharing their personal musical journeys and knowledge with the next generations of musicians. Please contact Bogdan.gumenyuk@gmail.com if you would like to donate to the project or get involved in any way!!!
