Live on Airborne Event with Dan Bodah 12/24/12 by Koliadnyky of Kryvorivnia

Album Description

Released:December 24th, 2012

The Koliadnyky are a group of Hutsuls from a little Carpathian mountain town who sing magic songs every Christmastime to ensure that Spring comes again. The music includes the sound of the trembita, a 12 foot long horn made from a lightning-struck birch tree, and the words stem from pre-Christian days. Joining them will be members of Toronto's guerilla-folk party punks, the Lemon Bucket Orkestra. Wild times are assured if you will only lend us your ears!

Check out Dan Bodah's playlist of this live set in order to hear a description of the meaning of the songs played (in addition to the first track, "Trembita," which was not included here).

Variations of koliada are still celebrated in most nations of Europe, and many of our own USA winter celebrations are based in these ancient rites, such as our caroling.

The remarkable photographer Charles Fréger traveled all over Europe photographing one element of the ancient winter celebration - the wild men. National Geographic magazine gave him a gorgeous spread in 2013. You might enjoy seeing his online exhibit of these fantastical natural wild men costumes on his website.
