Andrii Kaseniuk is a guitarist in “SilverTown” band. He served in 93rd separate mechanized brigade as a reconnaissance man. He says that songs helped him to relax after cannonades and explosions. “I found a guitar there, put it to rights and strummed the guitar when I had a minute to spare. One day, my commander told me: “Create something worthwhile”. Several days later a song was born. It became sort of an anthem of the 93rd brigade”, – Andrii shares his recollections during the shooting of the film.

Five laureates of the first all-Ukrainian festival became the heroes of the documental film. The television series of the project “Songs born in ATO” – are true stories of soldiers, sergeants, master sergeants, officers and volunteers. The film includes a lot of music, archival photos and amateur video footage made by warriors themselves.

Performers of the second festival, which will be held this spring, will take part in the filming.
