Alina Bzhezhinska, a Ukrainian artist leads the organization of a benefit concert for Ukraine.

Concert for Ukraine is the brainchild of Ukrainian-born jazz harpist and Jazz FM Award Nominee Alina Bzhezhinska.

” My country is burning. As a native Ukrainian and a human being I can not be silent. I wish I could go and fight alongside my family who are all in the resistance, but I have to stay where I am and use my music as my weapon. My mother told me I have to be strong for all Ukrainians and play my music for them to show solidarity and give my people some comfort and love.

I am very proud of my friends and family – and everywhere standing up against evil right now. Ukraine has always been a European country; it has amazing people, who only want to live in peace and harmony with the rest of the world. They were pushed to become great warriors, but they are musicians and artists, doctors and lawyers, housewives and teachers and all of them are now united against the aggressor who wants to kill democracy and freedom in their country. This concert is important for all of us as peace is so fragile at the moment and the world needs this – peace – the most.” – Alina Bzhezhinska.
