I was approached by the label Cosmovision Records to create a downtempo folk-tronica track for the compilation album ‘Cantos a la Madre’ (Chants to the Mother). I collaborated with DJ Oonga based in Montreal to create this “trip” through the forests of Eastern Europe.
Nastasia Y & DoVIra - III
My first electronic EP, and DoVira’s third release.
‘III’ was created in a cabin in the woods of Ontario by DoVira’s electro trio: myself, Mike Romaniak and Patrick O’Reilly. The EP seamlessly blends English, Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, and even invented languages.
DoVira - DoVira
This is the album I’m most proud of – the self-titled full-length album ‘DoVira’ (meaning “trust” in Ukrainian).
The album, coined “world fusion at its best” by Whole Note Magazine, features 9 guest artists from the Toronto world music scene, including Ed Hanley (Autorickshaw), Ernie Tollar, Andrea Kuzmich, and members of Lemon Bucket Orkestra.
DoVira - OBRYS
This is DoVira’s first EP.
Our early work largely focused on creating fresh arrangements of popular Ukrainian songs, accompanied by live studio videos. One of the videos, “Yihav Kozak Mistom” is has garnered over 150,000 views on YouTube.
Stacey Y - Set THe Water Straight
My debut album in English, released in 2013 under the stage name “Stacey Y”.
Rik Emmett (of Canadian rock legend group Triumph) called the album “dynamic, dramatic, hip, stylish and sophisticated”.
