The event is the result of a decade-collaboration between Karbido band (PL) and Yuri Andrukhovych (UA), and their co- has resulted in four albums, i.e. Samogon/Moonshine – Cinnamon – Absinthe trilogy and the Atlas Estremo.
The Samogon/Moonshine album is a combination of rock & jazz dynamics with the Andrukhovych’s texts about Ukraine in the Orange Revolution period. The Cinnamon album is inspired by Bruno Schulz, his works and the multicultural myth of Galicia Austro-Hungarian Empire. The concert version is accompanied by multimedia support. The Absinthe album represents a bold combination of poetry, prose, music, film and visual art. The concert premiere in Kyiv was recognized to be the artistic event of the year. The album touches the problem of presence (or rather absence) of Ukraine in Europe. The multifaceted Atlas Estremo – is the author's journey around the world of memories, passions and disappointments.
