BIOGRAPHY

Prepare for a blast of Cossack Viking folk rock from Svjata Vatra, led by trombonist Ruslan Trochynskyi.
A Ukrainian-Estonian ensemble, Svjata Vatra, which translates to "Holy Fire" in English, plays folk music based on traditional songs, nostalgic children's games, and Baltic melodies, with a fresh punk attitude. On stage, the band evokes an ancient and irresistible pagan rite using bagpipes, jew's harp, scythe, and husky lead vocals—all blown into the 21st century by shimmering trombone.
Since 2006, they've been making people dance and breaking down walls by demonstrating shared musical roots in 22 European countries, and in Canada, USA, Kazakhstan.
From performing on Viking ships to shows at Colours of Ostrava, FelSziget, Positivus, Urkult, London International Festival of Exploratory Music, Kaustinen, Haapavesi, Nomad Way, The Spirit of Tengri, Volksfest, and Viljandi Folk Festivals – Svjata Vatra are gaining momentum.
Now, they're ready to bring their fiery folk further out into the world.
They've picked up critical acclaim along the way.
"Kalyna" was awarded 'Best Folk Song in Estonia' in 2009.
"Pane mind põlema / Light my fire" was used as a soundtrack in the USA TV series "Seal Team" in 2017.
The band are also alumni of several showcase festivals, including Budapest Ritmo 2016 (the showcase festival from WOMEX partners Hangveto), Tallinn Music Week (6 times), Eurosonic, and the 2018 Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, USA.

They've proven time and again that they can get any audience in a festive mood.
In 2020, the band released a new album: "World, You Are Changing," in English.
