Crimea is a Magical Place!

Magical Crimea is the musical equivalent of a traveling circus, an 7-person band that plays high-energy rock based Balkan Music (reminiscent of international sensation Gogol Bordello), sure to bring a smile to your step as well as your step! - Hour Community, Montreal, June 30, 2011, p. 6

It's a beautiful island in the Black Sea with its own unique multi-cultural society.

This band is Magical Crimea's official musical ambassadors to the World.

Chosen from the dozens of Crimean bands, they were granted theofficial title of Small Orchestra of Hope in 2009 on the strength of their song- writing & performing skill.

The Government of Magical Crimea supports the Orchestra in its quest to spread Crimea’s music & culture in the rest of the World.

“At their shows people dance, sing along & generally become better people,” say The Crimean Chronicle.

With one album under its belt & many more to come, Small Orchestra of Hope  is looking forward to conquering the World in its magical musical net.
