Korinya: Ukrainian Folk Band

Korinya ("roots" in English), began as a family band in 2005. It has since developed into a young, contemporary folk band that presents Ukrainian folk music with a fresh, grassroots sound. Hear the voices of the steppes, the cheerful melody of the sopilka, and the soulful fiddle-playing that tie this band to their roots. Members include Sana Shepko (violin), Zoya Shepko (accordion), Alina Kuzma (vocals), Maria Pleshkevich (percussion), Stefan Shepko (sopilka), and Nick Hladio (double bass). 

The band has performed several times in Ukraine, including a charity tour in 2010, where they traveled to orphanages and convalescent homes. This trip was followed by another in 2012, where Korinya won first place at the Boyko Festival. Korinya performs at festivals, weddings and other events across Canada and the US, including the Bloor West Village Toronto Ukrainian Festival, the Clearwater's Great Hudson River Revival, and the Capital Ukrainian Festival in Ottawa. Korinya has performed at LaMama Experimental Theatre of New York City, and has been the featured party band at Kosa Kolektiv's Malanka in Toronto as well as the Cleveland Malanka in Ohio. As of 2018, the group has two full-length albums: Korinya (2013), and Zemlya (2017). You can find Korinya's music on CD Baby, Bandcamp, Spotify and iTunes.
