Famous Ukrainian pop songs?
I was looking for a discussion on Duolingo about pop songs in Ukrainian, but I didn't found anything like that. So, do you know some popular songs? I just know Злата Огневич, Ані Лорак, Джамала and Вєрка Сердючка who are true Ukrainian (well, as I heard, Zlata isn't whole Ukrainian), if I'm not mistaken. But they sing mostly in Russian.
What can you recommend me?
Thanks in advance! Дуже дякую!
I am not sure if this is what your looking for, and this is the only ukranian song ive ever heard, here it is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOTh59OlLoU&list=LLDnLx97eXMlNq82vBefsk2A&index=14
(I wanted to make a discussion about my favorite Ukrainian songs, with some pop also. When I make it, I'll update this with the post.)
ONUKA - freaking amazing band. Combines techno-popy electronic with traditional Ukrainian instruments. Plus, the lyrics are generally easy to understand.
Світлана Тарабарова - Just started listening to her, but has a great pop, catchy tune and easily known lyrics.
Khrystyna Soloviy - Again, just started listening to her, but soo good. A little bit harder and richer lyrics.
Without recommending you anything in particular, here are a few playlists created by youtube users:
As for me, if we talk about pop music, I like Лама and Океан Ельзи.
No one has mentioned the queen of Ukrainian pop? RUSLANA! She releases most of her songs with Ukrainian and English versions, the fun part is seeing where they differ, because they are not direct translations.
I'm not sure why you think Jamala sings mostly in Russian? She has more English songs than any other language, and most of her recent music has been in Ukrainian or English.
Okean Elzy are also good.
