Variát in Post-Muzica series

Today as a part of Post-Muzica series there will be a premiere of audio-visual work from Variát “For The Heart Of Kyiv”

”Some fights are old, some have roots in ancient times, embedded in myths and legends, carrying the spirit from one generation to another. Our enemy would come with different names and different faces, but always with the same deathwish for us. Today they call themselves russians, before they were soviets, earlier they were muscovites. They want us to obey, or to die. They can’t exist without us, and they can’t accept our existence. They want us to become them, but for us, it is worse than death. Over and over again, century after century, generation after generation we rise from the ashes and carry on our fire of freedom and great love to life. And this fight today must be the last one. This monster, this last inhumane empire called russia must finally stop existing. We, Ukrainians, together with many other nations which suffered so much for such a long time, deserve to have a future where we breathe and develop freely. This fight, this great total war is not for territory or history, this war is for the spirit of freedom, for the light against darkness. And our victory will detonate countless other nations on their leap toward liberation, and this will change the world and start a new era. We don’t know when this war will end, but we know how. Glory to freedom, glory to life!”

(Dmytro Fedorenko)

Radio On Berlin with Dmytro Fedorenko

Radio On’s friendship with Dmytro started in the winter of 2013-2014. In a weekly series of skype connections we listened to his reports from the Maidan uprising. Those events turned out to be decisive in the further development of Ukraine as an independent state. Russia didn’t agree with the new government. The war in Donbass, the annexation of Crimea were small steps towards the massive invasion we witness now.

Dmytro came to our studio to talk about all this, and give some insights from an Ukrainian point of view: the wars in Georgia and Chechnya were much more than images and words on TV and in the newspapers.

To not allow the curtain of darkness unfold over our souls we also talked about how the end of his label Kvitnu opened ways to new horizons. You will hear the name and history of Oles Berdnyk, Soviet and post-soviet moods, Startrek, Zelensky, family, friends, days with three hours of sleep and friends somewhere in Berlin talking about this while trying to keep a light heart.

A message from Dmytro Fedorenko

Dear friends,

With this corona-panic and closing and canceling of everything, many artists who actually do depend on their live shows as their main or only income, are really in trouble. Canceling of one month fees would hurt anyone. Artists are not being compensated for these cancellations. There is no company who would pay artists their fees no matter what.Many artists are looking for a different type of support, but there is something obvious that could work right away. Here’s the idea you might consider for these days and weeks:If you planned to go to some event of an artist you love, and this artist’s gig was canceled, please simply go to artist’s personal Bandcamp and spend those little cash you planned for the door ticket and beer on simply buying a vinyl, cassette, CD or download. Buy one track! Nearly every artist has a Bandcamp, all money from these sales go directly to artist’s pockets. Don’t stream on Spotify, buy on Bandcamp today. Trust me, even just a few bucks matter.This is not an abstract thing now. Today you can really support music by doing something real, even if small but really real.Go, find your beloved artist’s Bandcamp and make an action!
