Music for peace

In the shattered streets of Ukraine, music pierces through the heartbreak.


Denys Karachevtsev loves his city of Kharkiv, Ukraine, & wanted to do what he could to bring peace in the midst of a horrible war through his music while trying to raise money for humanitarian aid to help rebuild his country. Set aside just a precious few minutes to take in a haunting Bach prelude by this Ukrainian cellist playing in the obliterated streets of his hometown. As Karachevtsev attests on this clip from Akustikos Art Group, “I believe we can restore and rebuild our city and our country when the war is over.” Let’s hope he’s right.
