Five Seasons Ukrainian Calendar – Ritual songs with a twist

Op vrijdag 18 december om 20.00 uur verzorgt Trio SonCe een bijzonder concert in ‘t Mosterdzaadje.
Dit trio bestaat uit Maryanka Golovchenko (Ukraine/Netherlands) – vocal
Pau Sola Masafrets (Cataluña, Spain/Netherlands) – cello en Cengiz Arslanpay (Turkey/Netherlands) – woodwinds and modular synths

The Five Seasons project is created by a combination of a female voice, cello, modular electronics, and woodwinds. This is a story in 9 pieces. The main idea of this project goes around the concept of the cyclicality of life, of nature; the flow of time and life. Five Seasons is a project about natural returns, interconnectedness, trees, and snow, and humans.
The program is based on traditional calendar ritual songs from different parts of Ukraine. Christmas carols/Winter Solstice (Koliadka, Shchedrivka); Spring carols; Green Festivities ritual song (Pinksteren); Summer Solstice songs (Kupalska); Wedding song and a Lullaby.

The nine music stories are:

  1. Winter | Christmas magic
  2. Spring | Grey Geese
  3. Spring | Triptych
  4. Summer | Green Festivities
  5. Summer | Mint
  6. Acoustic | Lullaby
  7. Summer | Solstice
  8. Autumn | Wedding
  9. Winter | Kyiv

We are inspired by the mix of folk music and improvisation. Folk music has similarities wherever it comes from. The idea that it is old and goes back in generations gives a very solid roots for the crown of music to emerge. The old song is a bridge between the past and the future. At the same time our project has a lot of freedom in it! The old song has the energy that directs us but further on it can be transformed in many different forms. This music is very interpretative. We are the building blocks that are leaving their own marks and what we make becomes something different from what it was in the first place and still it is stable on the inside…
