For the first time ever, the West saw world-class works by Yermylov and Bohomazov, two obscure Avant-gardists from Ukraine. Their works brought to mind the names of world-famous masters whose origin, education, self-perception and national traditions were linked with Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv, Odessa and with the Ukrainian cultural tradition

Cecilio CVN-200 Rosewood Full Size 4/4 Violin with Case and Accessories. A number of Slavic folk music instruments have names which are related to Gusli such as the Czech violin housle, the Balkan one-stringed fiddle gusle. In western Ukraine and Belarus, husli can also refer to a fiddle or even a ducted flute. The violin-like variant of the instrument is also related to the Southern Slavic gusle.The psaltery variant is related to the zither. It is also related to the Latvian kokle, the Lithuanian kankles and the Finnish kantele. Together these instruments make up the family known as Baltic Psalteries.A related instrument is the tsymbaly, a hammered dulcimer.In Ukraine, it is thought that the gusli may have influenced the development of the multi-stringed bandura, which largely replaced it in the nineteenth century.
