Chairs and lecterns moved aside, guitars and trumpets being tuned – on Saturday evening the translators took a time off from their work and danced to the newest songs by Serhiy Zhadan and his band „Sobaky v kosmosi” (Dogs in Space).

The new album “Fight for her” is mainly dedicated to time-critical topics – with a good dose of humour and a lively musical arrangement. Those who are somehow familiar with Ukraine – the home country of the band – surely recognized its social phenomena and odious figures.

The audience shouted twice for an encore. When even those guests who don’t understand a word in Ukrainian jump and sing along, it is a definite success, isn’t it?
