The starting point style of reggae in Ukraine can be considered the formation of the band The VYO in Kobeliaky, Poltava region in 1991. Core team made up guitarist Sergey Pidkaura and singer Miroslav Kuvaldin. Within 10 years of existence the band musicians occasionally diverged, converged, they were joined by other participants. In 1995, The VYO became the winner of the “Red rue” with rood song “Ganja.”The peak popularity of their music came at the time of cooperation with artistic agency “Theretory A” and rotation of clips in the eponymous hit parade. Contemplating colorful appearance Miroslav (wich have Nigerian roots), the audience could not believe that guy was born in eastern Ukraine and “speaks so well in our language ” . Song Zori (“Each of us can something …”) became manifest Ukrainian rastafari.
