Street Musician in Lviv, Ukraine

1998 by Yuri Lev

This man was standing around in the 100 meters square in front of the Lviv Opera. Upon seeing me, a foreigner,he sang an Italian song. When I spoke to him in Ukrainian and stuffed a hryvnia in his pocket, he announced that he'd sing a Ukrainian song. He proceeded to do so over the objection of a Russian tourist nearby. The name of the song was "Oh Ukraine," or Oy Moya Ukraino."
