Yesterday, March 7, Miami welcomed world famous Ukrainian band OKEAN ELZY. Concert took place at Copa Room, one of the clubs on South Beach.
OKEAN ELZY has long become the group that unites different people, different parts of Ukraine, and henceforth different parts of the world. Line of people who were waiting to see Svyatoslav Vakarchuk and his band, had reached a parallel street. That’s how fans were waiting for OKEAN ELZY. Lots of people in embroidery shirts, with Ukrainian flags and other national symbolics.. Those facts indicate that Ukrainians identify themselves as a nation, even outside the country.
As for the concert, OKEAN ELZY performed in their own recognizable manner: it was piercefully and vigorously. Long story short, it was great, as usual. Attending OKEAN ELZY concert here, in America, for me is some kind of soul therapy. Because wherever you are, home is always home.
