In traditional Ukrainian folk music there are a variety of spring songs. Some songs are sung early in the season when there is still snow on the ground with the intention of awakening the spring and sending winter away. Other songs and dances are done once spring has become more established and the earth emerges into the season of growth and renewal. This presentation by Nadia Tarnawsky will examine some of these variants as well as provide an opportunity to sing some vesnianky.
