    Getting Down in the Metro - Ukrainian sounds beneath the rues and boulevards of Paris
    — by Max Pyziur

    Ukrainian band's small stage in the Paris Metro

    Subways throughout the world are not only transportation conduits for denizens of larger cities, but they also play host to assorted artistic ventures. Admittedly, many of the performers turn out to be talentless sorts attempting to render yet another tired and tuneless version of an evergreen. However, there are pleasant surprises on occasion - a performance artist dressed and feigning the look of a famous statue; a somber saxophone playing a soulful ballad; and in New York, a city-sanctioned program called "Music Under the Streets" featuring lesser known jazz musicians deserving wider recognition.

    Three samples from the CD Cabaret Slave 2:
     ·  Detelez les chevaux, les gars / Rozpriahaj'te khloptsi koni
     ·  Mais tu m'as pose un lapin / Pidmanula, pidvela
     ·  La lune tout la-haut / Misiats' na nebi

    Throughout Europe organized groups of musicians travel from city to city performing under license in the various tunnels connecting their respective subway systems, collecting donations and selling CD recordings. France's capital is one popular destination for such groups.

    As the name indicates, Les Musiciens de Lviv is a troupe from Lviv Ukraine which plays in Paris - its subways as well as its cabarets. The group's performances are primarily Ukrainian music while its CDs are recordings of a variety of East European traditional music - Gypsy, Moldovan, Russian and Ukrainian.

    Among the members of the group encountered at an interchange on Metro stop 'Chatelet' are: Mykola Mazur - accordion, Vasyl Andrusiv - guitar, Volodymyr Chkoropata - flute, trumpet, tambourine, and Oleg Karaim - Bass.
