ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Olya's new Ukrainian children's recording is finally here!

Multi-talented Olya Fryz (a.k.a. Olya Chodoba-Fryz) is an accomplished vocalist & bandura instrumentalist who has been entertaining audiences for over 20 years and has been an instructor for the past 15 years. As a first generation Ukrainian-American, Olya's contemporary musical interpretations preserve her love for traditional Ukrainian song.

For this children's recording, Olya combined forces with Slavko Halatyn (producer, arranger, recording engineer, and an extroardinary musician). The result is fantastic! Great music, fun arrangements, and a beautiful and pleasant voice. "Shcho za hamir" is sure to be a family favorite.

Olya began performing again the summer of 2004 with the repertoire from her first 3 successful Ukrainian CD's. Her audiences welcomed her back and wanted new material. As a rookie mom (with 2 children who were her main inspiration behind this recording!) and a seasoned music teacher, this children's album project was the next natural step. From a mom's perspective Olya wanted to preserve the songs that she had grown up with and fallen in love with. From a music teacher's perspective, Olya wanted to introduce her new listeners to various styles of music while giving them the chance to sing their own versions with the musical tracks included.

Growing up in NYC Olya is known by many for her various performances and recordings with the Homin Stepiv Bandura Ensemble, the New York Bandura Ensemble's original NY School of Bandura, the Promin Vocal ensemble and several wedding bands. Olya emerged as a solo vocalist who set out to develop her music creatively and instinctively to reflect traditional Ukrainian concepts with individualized arrangements and flair. Olya also incorporates her Ukrainian dancing background into her performances. Recently Olya has been performing special children's shows featuring an audience interactive show that is quite entertaining and fun for her young audiences! (Not to mention their parents as well!) Be sure to visit www.olyafryz.com for a listing of upcoming performances and events.

Olya's performance credits include concerts and festivals throughout the United States and Canada including Lincoln Center, Verkhovyna Festival in Glen Spey NY, cabarets in Chicago, Detroit, Soyuzivka, NY; seminars at elementary schools, various fundraising events (especially CCRF), the "Razom Festival" in Edmonton, Canada, Liberty State Park Celebrations in NYC, and the United Nations International Citizens World Music Concert.

Olya has to her credit 3 other very popular Ukrainian albums: "Zhadaj" - Remember, "Zaprosy u sny" - Into Your Dreams and Mother's Lullabies. "Zaprosy u sny" has just been reprinted and is now also available on cdbaby.com/olya You can hear all of the songs which are a collection of folk and contemporary pieces performed in a very soothing and beautiful style.

Olya's anxiously awaited new recording featuring sing along Ukrainian children's song's is finally available! Olya's talent, enthusiasm and spirit add another dimension to the world of Ukrainian music, which has been her love forever!

Myron H

need to add this to your CD collection!
Part of the beauty of this children's CD is that it's not just for the kids - adults too will enjoy it and walk away humming and, perhaps, happily a bit nostalgic. This CD bridges generations. Perfect vocals and masterful and creatively diverse music arrangements.

A must have cd...for children and adults...
I love listening to it...sometimes getting choked up. It brings back memories from when I was young and first learned these songs. I am so glad that now I can share the songs and memories with my children. Tania, 7 years old also loves it, when she gets in the car the first thing she asked for is to play this cd.

Excellent for kids and adults alike!
My 21 month-old can't get enough of this CD, and it's the first kids' CD every adult really enjoys as well (including me, who hears it at least 5 times a day in the car!) Everyone sings along with Olya (and dances) - the kids love the orchestration and tempo of the upbeat songs, as well as the more mellow lyrical songs. Kudos to the entire team for putting together a real treat for the kids and a wonderful, musical walk down memory lane for the parents!

Now here's a new approach to upbeat, unusually catchy children's music- it's Ukrainian. But whether you or your kids understand the lyrics or not, its clever, cartoonish and intelligent folk and poprock mix comes across either way and reaches kids of all ages, from toddlers up through grade school. Think of it as a great way to expose your child to world culture while enjoying playful, distinctively different songs. This one is a joy from start to finish and comes highly recommended for families.

totally fun for everyone!
This cd is full of great songs to dance and sing along with. A great choice of songs for kids, and the music is well done (meaning we can listen to it over, and over, and over, and over...)!
