 Bumboks in Concert, Sport Palace “Ukraine” (18 Melnyka Str.) 28 April from 19.30


In the past decade few Ukrainian acts have generated as much critical acclaim as Bumboks, the lyrical rap and hip hop trio who first appeared on the Kyiv music scenes in the heady days of late 2004. The group made a name for themselves as a result of Andriy Khlibniuk’s hauntingly poetic yet streetwise lyrics, performed to a dizzying array of funky and original musical accompaniments courtesy of guitarist Andriy Samoilo and master mixer Valentin Matyuk. The group’s appearance on the scene revitalised a Ukrainian hip hop industry which was in danger of becoming utterly dominated by identikit commercial ventures and inspired a new generation of young Ukrainian rappers to embrace their own unique sound. Bumboks have also proved massively popular in Russia and many of Ukraine’s East European neighbours, but they will rarely get at warmer reception that at this month’s concert in Lviv.


Tickets are available for 90 UAH to 250 UAH.
