chumatstvo; chumatski songs; Ukrainian song folklore; spiritual culture


The article considers a large layer of Ukrainian song folklore – chumatski songs, which have
a prominent place in the system of Ukrainian social lyrics. It is determined that chumatski songs are an
essential part of the spiritual culture of the Ukrainian people. These songs reproduce the conceptual
positions of representatives of trade and coaching and should be the subject of synthetic
interdisciplinary research, including theoretical and instrumental training of future artists. The article
emphasizes the role of chumatstvo in the processes of nation-building related to the formation of the
sphere of Ukrainian national aesthetics and worldview. The relevance of the study is determined by the
need to understand chumatski songs as signs of ethnoculture of the Ukrainian people, the ways of its
existence and spiritual revival.
