Songs and Sovereignty in Ukraine: An Online Lecture
with Maria Sonevytsky
Tuesday, March 8
5:30pm Pacific Time
FREE / Preregistration required
Learn more and register online https://washington.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJwtc--hqj8iGdVUNJIrdSakwvF2yrGzDQpA
Hosted by the University of Washington
Maria Sonevytsky, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Music at Bard College, vocalist, accordionist, author of "Wild Music: Sound and Sovereignty in Ukraine" and producer of the Chornobyl Songs Project, will contextualize Russia's unfolding invasion of Ukraine through the history of traditional and contemporary music and the testimonials of Ukrainians, especially musicians, who have been living in geopolitical precariousness for their entire lives.
"I never pray, but since last week it is all I do. I pray for peace. I pray for de-escalation. I pray for the ordinary Ukrainians--some of whom I know and love--who are displaced, waiting in bomb shelters, etc. I pray for the people experiencing racism at the border. And I pray for the ordinary Russians whose economy and futures are also imploding, who didn't ask for this suicide mission in their names. And I pray for all of us." —Maria Sonevytsky

Anne, the main reason we kept the Mudcat Facebook page public is so when people post about activities like this (or make it an event on the page) it is shareable. Please post this over there as an event (I see another one there already - the more the merrier!) Here's the link to the other one:

If anyone would like to watch our second Concert for Ukraine (which too place on April 3rd), or possibly donate to the fundraising, you'll find the link at https://justgiving.com/fundraising/musicandstories
It was a wonderful evening - the video is flawed (editing issues) but gives a good flavour of it all. So far we've raised £5,189.00 for the UNHCR.

Since Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February, Sadovska has been tirelessly offering her evocative voice to raise international awareness of, and aid for, the embattled people of her homeland.
