ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in New York to a Ukrainian father and Belarusian mother, folksinger Bohdan Andrusyshyn, aka “Danchyk”, began his musical career rather modestly, when at the age of 15, he won a local talent competition held by the Belarusian community in New Jersey. Two years later, he recorded his first album, “Belarusachka”. Unbeknownst to him, the LP was bootlegged and surreptitiously circulated throughout all of Belarus. This, and a chance meeting and subsequent friendship with the Belarusian supergroup “Pesnyary”, propelled Danchyk to superstardom in the former Soviet republic. In 1989, Danchyk did a multi-city tour in Belarus, including eight sold out concerts at the Palace of Professional Unions, as well as the Minsk Philharmonic. Before curtailing his performing career in 1997 to concentrate on journalism, Danchyk recorded five studio albums – four in Belarusian and one in Ukrainian.

“Rovesnyky” (English translation "Coevals") is Danchyk’s only Ukrainian language album. Although less well known in Ukraine than in Belarus, Danchyk was, nevertheless, in great demand as a featured performer at Ukrainian festivals and resorts throughout the United States. “Rovesnyky” was critically acclaimed by the Ukrainian press in both the U.S. and Canada, and enjoyed significant radio play on Ukrainian language radio programs in North America. Featuring Ukrainian folksongs and songs by contemporary Ukrainian songwriters, “Rovesnyky” showcases Danchyk’s velvety tenor voice, against the backdrop of Oles Kuzyszyn’s well crafted musical arrangements. “Rovesnyky” was released in 1991, but has been out of print since 2004. This digital re-issue makes this rare recording available once again to a whole new generation of folk music enthusiasts.
