Group YUKO to take part in the national selection for Eurovision with the song 2019 Ukrainian GALYNA GULIALA. This team was announced on his page in Facebook.
“We decided not to create a song specifically for Eurovision, and not to use the English language because it will hurt the originality of music, and also negate the authenticity of the folklore text. I believe that only music created without thinking about the format, it is possible to achieve the best results”, – stated in the message.
Group YUKO is Yulia Yurina and Stas Korolev, who met in 2016 on the show “Golos Krainy”, then on the initiative of coach Ivan Dorn came together to create their music – a synthesis of folk and wild electronics. The first known group brought Masha the single, released in February 2017. In the autumn of the same year was released the first full-length album under the name Ditch. In 2018, YUKO presented its second album, “DURA?”.
