We are proud to present a composer, singer, kobzar, bandurist, flute player and conductor JULIAN KYTASTY with his FIRST BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC SOLO EVENT!
Julian Kytasty is one of the world’s premier players of the bandura (Ukrainian lute-harp), and the instrument’s leading North American exponent. A singer, multi-instrumentalist and third-generation bandurist, he has concertized and taught instrumental and choral music throughout the Americas and Europe.
As a performer, recording artist, composer, and bandleader, Mr. Kytasty has redefined the possibilities of the bandura. 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. Julian has recorded and performed as a soloist, with the Canadian world music group Paris to Kyiv. He has also worked with musical innovators such as John Zorn and Derek Bailey, as well as cross-culturally with such artists as Wu Man, Klezmer revivalist Michael Alpert, and Mongolian master musician Battuvshin.
