Kalush Orchestra will rap for Ukrainian pride at Eurovision Song Contest

Given the devastating impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, anything that can lift the spirits of the beleaguered Ukrainian people is more than welcome. And there could be a piece of mild relief on the cards next month at the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, Italy, where Ukraine’s entry is a hot favorite to take the title.

The six-piece rap group Kalush Orchestra is named after the founding member’s hometown of Kalush in western Ukraine. The group was on a nationwide tour when the Russians invaded, and they came close to a few bombings. In the wake of the attacks, one member also joined the regional forces defending Kyiv. And the band’s lead singer, Oleh Sayuk, has formed a volunteer organization to help people find shelter, medicine and transportation.
