While on a recent business trip to Spain I was appalled by the fact that in two of the Ukrainian stores I visited I could not find one piece of licensed Ukrainian music. The only Ukrainian music I found was one CD of VV collection on CD in MP3 format, and that I am 100% certain was pirated music. The rest was Russian, and for the most part it was not even top quality contemporary Russian music. I hope to follow up on this in a more detailed article in the next day or two.
In short, even those who claim to be Ukrainian in countries like Spain, don’t seem to give a damn about their own culture but rather what they think will sell! But I together with others will be working on changing this. It won’t be easy, but at least someone has to make the effort.
