Legend of UkrPop in Lviv
El Kravchuk in concert, 30 April,
Picasso nightclub (88, Zelena Street, Lviv), beginning at 22.00
El Kravchuk (real name: Andriy Kravchuk) wrote himself into the history of Ukrainian show business in the 1990s, and he has remained one of the country’s most recognisable and iconic performers ever since, working both as a recording artist and a TV presenter. His legions of fans across the country credit Andriy with having almost single-handedly created his own genre, which many dub ‘Ukrainian neo-romantic’. His shows are famed for their use of theatrical elements – which is no surprise given that El Kravchuk has also performed on stage in leading roles for celebrated Ukrainian contemporary theatre director Andriy Zholdak. Kravchuk has also experimented in recent years with English-language recordings, and was the artist responsible for “In the Mood”, which provided the musical accompaniment to Ukraine’s entry at the 2008 European Dance Contest.
