Boombox in the Hague!

On November 30, the band’s big concert at Paard!

In the legendary film by the Ukrainian director and actor Leonid Bykov, “Only “old men go to battle”, the main character, Captain Tytarenko, nicknamed “Maestro”, utters the equally legendary phrase: “Who said that you should give up a song in war?” For us, Boombox Family, these words are a guide to action.

The full-scale war started on February 24, 2022 by the Russian-fascist invaders forced us to forget “who we are and where we are from” for a long time. Territorial defense, police service, volunteering – at some points, music was simply not for me. The very thought of listening to anything, let alone playing, seemed seditious.

But then… You carefully turn on your favorite song. And another one behind her. And more. And it helps.

If you are a long-time fan or have recently discovered the band after hearing “Oy u luzi khrovona kalyna” performed by Andriy Khlyvnyuk, come to the band’s concerts. Your support is very important to us, thank you friends.
