I spent my Sunday making a Mixxtape! It’s an hour and 40 minutes of music from Ukraine. Some tracks made since the invasion, some way before, but I hope it shows some of the diverse and amazing musical talent of the country. It includes Klezma, Dance, Hip-hop, Rock, Reggae, Cabaret, Punk, Folk, and more genres. Many of these musicians are holding guns instead of microphones or instruments now. I hope you enjoy what you hear and spare a thought for those fighting the invaders on the frontlines.
