Go_A are an electro-folklore outfit, that specialise in the modern retelling of traditional Ukrainian stories that have already passed through many generations by word of mouth.

The story of the band began in 2012 when producer Taras Shevchenko met singer Kateryna Pavlenko, and after recording several songs, they realised that Ukrainian folklore and electronic music are a perfect match, combining energy and emotions into an engaging mix.

Kateryna has studied folklore most of her life. She sings using the ancient folklore technique of “white voice” (based on an open throat and free volume with a bright colour) and has a command of extreme vocals.

Taras Shevchenko is a keyboard and percussion player and is Go_A’s producer. He works in various music styles and knows how to harmonise completely different things in music, like the Ukrainian sopilka and Brazilian drums, or the bandura with heavy guitar riffs and drum ‘n’ bass.

Ihor Didenchuk is a folklorist and unique multi-instrumentalist whose rich musical arsenal includes traditional instruments such as the sopilka, frilka, floyara, telynka, trembita and the drymba. Ihor is also a member of a rap group.

Ivan Hryhoriak grew up in the Carpathian Mountains and has been experimenting with musical styles and sounds, including acoustics (finger style), prog metal (bass guitar), double bass in a folk orchestra, and electric guitar. Ivan also works as a vocal coach.

Oh Spring song, Spring song Where have you spent your Winter? In the garden, sitting on a maple tree You’ve been spinning a shirt. There on the edge of a forest An owl is blowing into the water. I’ll sing a song - Let her hear it. Shum, get twined with periwinkle I’m singing the spring song to you. Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing hemp plants, Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing green ones. Come Spring, come Don’t wait around We’ll go outside to love each other. Oh Spring, our Miss, Look in our window. We had sang our song And the Sun shined on. Come on, come on, let’s twine the Shum, Twine the Shum, dance it around. Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing hemp plants, Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing green ones. Shum, get twined, get twined! Shum, get spread with periwinkle. Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing hemp plants, Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing green ones. Oh Spring song, Spring song Where have you spent your Winter? In the garden, sitting on a maple tree You’ve been spinning a shirt. There on the edge of a forest An owl is blowing into the water. I’ll sing a song - Let her hear it. Shum, get twined with periwinkle I’m singing the spring song to you. Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing hemp plants, Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing green ones. Come on, come on, we’ve made some noise. Made some noise and awoke the Spring. Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing hemp plants, Sowing, sowing, sowing, sowing green ones.
