Korinya: Benefit Concert for Ukraine

Come see the live performance of the Korinya folk band perform Ukrainian folk music at The State Theatre in downtown State College!

Korinya, “roots” in English, was started as a family band in 2005. It has since developed into a contemporary folk band with a fresh, grassroots sound. Their music brings the village band tradition and Ukrainian musical heritage into the context of modern life in the diaspora, and to music enthusiasts of all walks of life.

The band has toured through Canada, the United States, and Ukraine, playing at weddings, events, and festivals—including the Bloor West Village Toronto Ukrainian Festival (Toronto, Ontario, Canada), Clearwater's Great Hudson Revival (New York), and the Boyko Festival (Turka, Lviv, Ukraine), where in 2012, Korinya won first place. Members include Sana Shepko (violin), Zoya Shepko (accordion), Alina Kuzma (vocals), and Nick Hladio (double bass). The group has two full-length studio albums: Korinya (2013) and Zemlya (2017); a live recording album, En Route Tour 2019: Live at Drom Taberna; and a digital EP, Lisom Lisom (2021).
