Serduchka (real name Andriy Danylko) has been in Kyiv all the time since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. In one of his interviews, he said that Katamadze had written to him since the beginning of the Russian attack.
Katamadze's concert took place on Friday, June 10, at the Maidan Nezalezhnosti metro station in Kyiv. The singer performed before the military, volunteers, residents and guests of the capital.
Georgian composer Nikoloz Rachveli accompanied her on the piano.
In addition to her own hit songs, Katamadze performed the Ukrainian song “Chornobryvtsi.”
Joining Katamadze on stage, Serduchka wore a camouflage jacket with the signature star on her head. She performed a song called “Get out of Ukraine, ugly Muscovite” – a phrase from one of her stand-up shows in the 1990s.
For Serduchka, this was her first performance since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.
INSO-Lviv Orchestra has announced that Katamadze will be a special guest at a charity festival in Lviv on June 12.
