Ron Cahute Obituary, Death – One of the most influential musicians to come out of the Ukrainian diaspora was Ron Cahute, and it is safe to argue that he was one of the most important. When it was first established in 1969, the group was named as “Cahute’s Band;” however, in the decade that followed, the name was changed to “Burya.” Burya’s music, which incorporates influences from Western and Eastern Canadian-Ukrainian music, would eventually become practically synonymous with the “Zabava” style of music that is associated with the Ukrainian diaspora. This is because Burya’s music blends influences from Western and Eastern Canadian-Ukrainian music.
Ron recorded a great many songs throughout the course of his career, which spanned the better part of a century. His three most successful albums, Burya I, III, and II (which were published in that sequence as a joke), all feature song arrangements that have been performed by a broad variety of bands. These song arrangements have been covered by a wide variety of bands. Companies in a variety of countries use the recordings he’s made of dance routines in their productions. People in Toronto were fed and entertained at his cabaret restaurant which he called “Ukrainian Caravan” for a number of years. The Barabolya CDs had a significant impact on the formative years of many people’s childhoods in the diaspora.
