Bandura played by Nadia Pryimak
Bandura, also called kobza, a stringed instrument of the psaltery family considered the national musical instrument of Ukraine. It is used chiefly to accompany folk music. The modern bandura has an oval wooden body; a short, fretless neck attached to the soundboard in an off-center position and 56 to 68 chromatically tuned treble strings stretched over the soundboard.


Ukrainian folk dance performed by Orlovska Dance Studio as well as Kateryna Aloshyna, dancer and choreographer, involves everybody in social dancing!

A Ukrainian folk dance had originated as a male dance among the Zaporizhia Cossacks in the 16th century, but later danced by couples, male soloists, and mixed groups of dancers. The Hopak is often popularly referred to as the “National Dance of Ukraine”. See Hopak at SABC3 studio
