As a solo performer and collaborator she crosses the fields of improvised, jazz, Afro-Caribbean, contemporary classical, traditional and experimental music, and regularly composes for film and theatre.
Since moving to Dublin from her native Kyiv in 2011 Olesya has rapidly become a dynamic and active figure on the Irish music scene, with key projects including her curation of the Phonica series, quickly established as a beacon amongst new outward-looking platforms, and her work with Diatribe Records on the critically-acclaimed Haivka recording by Yurodny Ensemble.
Olesya will present mix of arrangements of Ukrainian traditional music and setting of Ukrainian poetry.
Olesya is a founder of the Ukrainian-Irish Cultural Platform and co-curator with Christodoulos Makris of Phonica, a new music and poetry platform in Dublin.
All fees and donations from this concert will go to the Red Cross Ukrainian appeal.
