Kalush Orchestra: A Fundraiser for Ukraine

    Kalush Orchestra will embark on its first North American concert tour, where it will visit cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Toronto and others.

    Kalush Orchestra was created in 2021 as a band of six musicians, and as a spin-off of the first project KALUSH, founded in 2019. The name Kalush stems from group leader Oleh’s Psiuk hometown in the Western part of Ukraine.

    Kalush Orchestra is one of the young representatives of a vibrant Ukrainian-language hip-hop scene that has been trending in the past few years with dozens of top stars appearing in modern urban culture.

    The key point of difference of Kalush Orchestra from other bands in Ukraine is the combination of ethnic music elements with modern sound production, hip-hop dances and Ukrainian-language rap. 

    “The essence is that we take the old Ukrainian folklore that has been forgotten. We dig it out from many generations and add modern, contemporary elements, rap, and instruments. In the end we have a combination of what our ancestors had and what the young people like today. And those are our songs,” says Oleh.

    Now Kalush Orchestra is a band of six, with multi-instrumentalists Tymofii Muzychuk, Vitalii Duzhyk, Andriy Gandziuk, known as MC Dzhonni Dyvnyy, mysterious KylymMen (lead dancer under the nickname that translates as ‘Carpet-Man’), and Sasha Tab (vocalist of the band, also known as a member of the band "Salto Nazad").

    All Kalush Orchestra band members have prior experience in Ukraine TV shows, such as The Voice, Ukraine’s Got Talent, and others. They are also members and collaborators with other bands from Ukraine’s developing hip-hop scene. 

    “From our observations there were not many hip-hop songs in Eurovision, and certainly no rap groups as winners, so we are happy to bring this new angle to the Contest,” says Oleh.

    Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra have won the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, with their entry song Stefania. It happened on May 14 in Turin, Italy, a hip-hop band won a song contest with an additional 150 points.

    After that, the band raised $900,000 by auctioning off the glass microphone and a further $370,000 by raffling off the pink bucket hat frontman Oleh Psiuk wore during the performance.

    In June Kalush Orchestra performed their first UK gig at Glastonbury Festival. 

    The folk rap group opened their set in the early hours of Saturday morning, on Shangri-La's Truth Stage, with a set of 13 songs - 12 of which were written in just 10 days, according to their team.
