For Ukraine (Volume 2)
For Ukraine (Volume 2) is a compilation curated by Hollie Kenniff and released by Headphone Commute, which features ambient and modern classical composers from around the world who have come together to help raise funds to support displaced children and families affected by the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.
Vol 2. features a stirring new song composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto and Ukrainian violinist Illia Bondarenko called "Piece for Illia," which is out today. Sending files back and forth, the two produced the music, a touching cry for healing, and no war. Illia has been playing and uniting musicians from a bomb shelter in Ukraine, including a powerful violin flash-mob where Ukrainian violinists were joined in harmony by top violinists across the world. 94 violinists from 29 countries - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQSIeD-x6dQ.

For Ukraine Vol. 3, curated by Rafael Anton Irisarri, will be out in May 2022.
