Onuka bridge the worlds of almost lost Ukranian musical traditions and contemporary electronic music. Their unique eight-piece line-up includes a bandura zither, sopilka flute, two trombones and French horn, keyboards, and digital and analogue percussion, fronted by singer Nata Zhyzhchenko. Together with their imaginative video creations they evoke both a mythical shamanistic past and a modern urban globalism. Formed in 2014 by Nata and producer Eugene Filatov of Ukranian electro pioneers The Maneken, they attracted international attention for their interval performance at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest Finals in Kyiv. Onuka is a Ukranian expression for 'grand-daughter', referring here to Nata's grand-father, who was a celebrated craftsman of traditional Ukrainian musical instruments. The handmade sopilka that he gave her is at once a symbol of intent and an essential element of Onuka's musical philosophy.
