"Voices from Chernobyl" takes verbatim text from interviews with survivors of the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl, and of those who have resettled in the exclusion zone since. The show was first staged in Vancouver by The Troika Collective, directed by Aliya Griffin.
This album is studio recordings of the songs sung by the original cast seven singers.
The text is excerpted from the book "Voices From Chernobyl" by Svetlana Alexievich (use by permission of Dalkey Archive Press).
