Event Details

The electro-folk hitmakers Go_A are presenting their brand new single “Rusalochki”. After the release of last year’s single “Kalyna”, and their recent guest appearance at Eurovision in Liverpool, fans were really looking forward to hear the Ukrainian band in their new repertoire. The beautiful story explaining the origins of the song is what makes this release even more special.

Rusalka is a creature from Ukrainian mythology. Years ago, Go_A’s lead singer Kate took part in a folklore expedition, where she met a group of grannies who were resettled from their homes in Chornobyl area due to a disaster on a power plant. Those grannies showed Kate a magic ritual of accompanying Rusalkas to the forest. That experience was very inspiring to Kate, and one day she wrote “Rusalochki”. This song is about finding yourself in a world where a person lost their home forever. A story about trying to leave your past behind and an attempt to live in a new reality.

The single “Rusalochki” was released together with a music video, which was shot in Kyiv during a missile attack. The sounds of alerts and explosions were coming from every direction, while the band was working on set. Old women in the video are keepers of Ukrainian folklore from the ensemble "Berehynia", which were under Russian occupation on the Northern part of Ukraine in 2022. Despite a huge danger and a long way, these grannies were happy to come and take part in video shooting. These women, who are witnesses of two horrible wars, are a symbol of resilience of Ukrainian people, who stay at their land and keep their traditions despite any circumstances. The story of “Rusalochki” is always relevant and dedicated to every person on our planet who searches for their place in the World.
