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.

CRITICAL PRAISE

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
