Kube: La Mia Ucraina ( My Ukraine)
I've just stumbled upon the good vibes of an underground Italian-Ukrainan rock band called Kube.
Yeah, you heard it right...Italian-Ukrainian!
They are transnational and independent and self-produced. And possibly, the epitome of a multi-cultural Italy.
The band is Nazar Motrovich (Ukraine, frontman, vocals & lyrics) Ivan Velicsarn (Russia, bass) Matteo Pantaleoni (Italy, drums), Luca Antinori (Italy, keys & programming).
Among their influences: Muse, Negramaro, Nirvana.
In 2011 they released a new album of 5 Italian and 5 Ukranian songs, wich is obviously (ha! :) titled "Bipolar Disorder" depicting the 2 faces of an Italian-Ukranian personality...
You can read more about them in the articles by Italianipiù (Italian) and by gazetaukrainska.com (Ukrainan). But, first, watch their video la Mia Ucraina (My Ukraine) Україно моя (Встань) #Євромайдан dedicated to all the Ukrainian people of Maiden square.
...and you better watch the video of the smashing hit "Libero" (Free) about animal rights and much more...
