    On the Fourth of July, De Libertate: Songs of Freedom and Hope from Ukraine features four groups of performing artists who express and share Ukrainian identity, tradition, and cultural resilience through the power of song. The four groups—Bozhychi, Katya Chilly, Mariya Kvitka, and Shchuka Ryba—use folk, traditional, and contemporary styles to illustrate how music unites and inspires the Ukrainian people during this pivotal moment in their history.
