This experimental non-fiction music video was shot in Kiev, Ukraine, in early 2010 during the recording sessions of SARMATICA’s inaugural album THE LVIV LUTE.

The music featured in the film is a crossover between 16th century lute music (from the “Lviv Lute Tablature,” a manuscript that survives in the university library in Lviv, Ukraine) and Ukrainian folk styles. The artistic director of the group is Russian-American lutenist Oleg Timofeyev, arrangements are by Danylo Pertsov and Oleg Timofeyev.
