Tatuli Abuladze plays an instrumental version of a popular Ukrainian folk song “Plyve Kacha” with her 1872 antique French cello. She is playing this sad song about war from a bomb shelter in Ukraine.
“Plyve Kacha” translates literally to “the duckling swims”, but the lyrics are a dialogue between a mother and a son going off to war.
