In 2011, twelve U.S.-based singers were trained intensively by Yevhen Yefremov as part of the Chornobyl Songs Project that I spearheaded. The members of Hilka were: Suzanna Denison, Brian Dolphin, Cherrymae Golston, J.R. Hankins, Julian Kytasty, Ethel Raim, Willa Roberts, Caitlin Romtvedt, Eva Salina-Primack, Maria Sonevytsky, Nadia Tarnawsky, Shelley Thomas.

We were interviewed about the project on WNYC’s Soundcheck, and recorded an album released on Smithsonian Folkways in 2015.
