Portland's Chervona, formed four years ago with immigrants from Russia, Armenia, Kazakh, Poland, Brazil and Argentina.
"Chervona" is the essence of life, translating to "red" and/or "beautiful" in Ukrainian and Polish. For
example, chervona vino = red wine; chervona devchina = beautiful girl.
Along with Pitersky's over-the-top personality, gang vocals from the rest of the band made the performance quite theatrical... Madness was in the air. Someone passed around a giant box of chocolates strangers twirled one another in the crowd... -- Jason Simms, The Oregonian
It is impossible to describe Chervona's sound without sounding ridiculous. Vagabonding gypsy folk- punk? Russian fever-folk? Neo-Bohemian dance-rock? Punk/big band fusion? Regardless, Chervona's musical styling is raucously unique... What stands out the most is Chervona's lack of reliance on flimsy kitsch. They are adamant about being seen not as another band that uses its Eastern European heritage as a gimmick. Rather, they set out to make the best possible music they know how, regardless of their background. -- Pat Moran, The Deli Magazine
If you're familiar with Gogol Bordello or the Red Elvises, you already have a sense of the dance madness a band like this can create. Chervona is a bit different than those two bands, however, as frontman Andreyshka Pitersky plays traditional Russian military songs, folk songs and drinking songs (in English and Russian), but allows influences to sneak in from all of the other band members' ethnic backgrounds. -- Vanessa Salvia, Eugene Weekly
