Julian Kytasty is one of the world’s premier players of the bandura (Ukrainian lute/harp), and the instrument’s leading North American proponent. A singer, multi-instrumentalist, and third-generation bandurist, he has performed and taught instrumental and choral music throughout the Americas and Europe.

As a performer, recording artist, composer, and bandleader, Kytasty has redefined the bandura’s possibilities. He is the musical director of New York Bandura and founder of Bandura Downtown, an innovative music series based in New York’s East Village that provides a home for creative explorations of traditional and contemporary sounds and themes. Kytasty has recorded and performed as a soloist with the Canadian world music group Paris to Kyiv.

Berklee alumnus Matt Scutchfield opens the show.
