„Badische Zeitung”, March 15, 2007 Music that rushes from a soul Festival „Weiler String Time” presented first the Ukrainian folk band „Hudaki” for German public.
Music that just quietly and unnoticed winded around a stage, instantly broke into the hall with reckless.

All of it brightly contrasted with the tender singing of shepherd’s flute and incomprehensible moan of violin, thin voice of guitar and pulsating rhythm of traditional tambourine.
Concert of Hudaki is more than just music. It is the real, not far-fetched, living and spontaneous presentation. (...)
