The band KHORTA was created in 2004. It included members of the band Speedway (Andriy Loboda, Yura Yurchenko, Yulia Kutsenko), and members of the project Modern Crow (Yuriy Volodkov, Mykhailo Savitsky). In 2006 the band released they first official album “The Songs of the Freedom Island”, from which songs clips (“Cuckoo”, “Life goes on, brother”) were shot.
The significant song for the band became “It's Zaporizhzhia, It`s Ukraine”, which was loved by listeners and became the unofficial anthem of Zaporizhzhia.
The band represented our city at dozens of Ukrainian festivals: Mahno fest, Tustan, Rock Sich, Nivroku, Zaxidfest, Ethno Summer, Banderstadt, Taras Bulba, and others.
Regrettably, in 2015 the leader and author of the band`s lyrics Andriy Loboda suddenly died after a short illness and the band ceased to exist. In support and memory of Andriy, the band gave several concerts.
After several years of silence and the cessation of activity, the band KHORTA reunites again and presents a new sound. The debut track of the renewed band KHORTA was named "Champion".
The band included: Yura Yurchenko, Mykhailo Savitsky, Yulia Kutsenko, Vitaliy Zhukov, Oleg Lubentsov, Yuriy Volodkov, Volodymyr Kondratenko, Heorhiy Varakin.
