ONUKA

The distinctive sound of ONUKA is an organic mix of electronics, modern pop and Ukrainian folk traditions. ONUKA was formed by two nationally renowned Ukrainian musicians: Eugen Filatov and Nata Zhyzhchenko. ONUKA’s signature sound is an organic mix of Electronica, Modern Pop and Ukrainian Folk traditions. ONUKA have – for the very first time – translated the richness of Ukraine’s Heritage into contemporary forms, all for a much wider audience.

In May 2017, ONUKA became a special guest of the Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev, the performance caused a great commotion among the European public. Within a few days, the EP VIDLIK topped the Hit lists in many European countries, including the Netherlands. Since the band formation ONUKA has given more than 100 concerts in Ukraine.

ONUKA, literally means “granddaughter,” is an ode to Nata’s grandfather, a man who devoted his entire life to making traditional Ukrainian instruments. The bandura, sopilka and trembita are all traditional Ukrainian instruments that are still unknown to the general public.

ONUKA’s debut EP ‘Look’ appeared in May 2014 and immediately jumped to the # 1 position in the Ukrainian Itunes lists. The album followed in October with the same range in the hit list of Itunes. The band now has more than 4 million views on Youtube and has already won several prizes including ‘Discovery Of The Year’ (Kiss FM, the most popular radio station in Ukraine) and an ‘ELLE Style Award for Musician Of The Year’. On stage, the duo gains a full band that plays keyboards, drums, traditional flute, two trombones, French horn, bandura and other traditional Ukrainian instruments and samplers.

"ONUKA’s music is timeless making the world around change its pace and the audience experience different states of body and soul: somehow you keep shifting from dancing rhythmic mood to something eternal and ageless, simultaneously learning more about Ukrainian vivid culture."
