All rise for composer, musition and producer Alexsey Zakharenko and soprano Tanya Lubimenko from the Ukraine. They invite you in a romantic journey into a melancholy, ethereal realm that has the otherworldly quality of the music of Lisa Gerrard, Enigma, and Elizabeth Fraser.

The new age of Origen started in 1996 when this name appeared on the CD "Electro" (http://www.baby.com/ origens) "that blends together elegance and beauty dressed in electronic clothing". The creator of this CD and new Origen is Alexsey Zakharenko- composer, electronic musician, sound engineer and producer from Kiev (Ukraine). Earlier he mainly was deal with recording and producing of classical music. "Electro" and the next album "Era of Aquarius" (http://www.cdbaby.com/origen), which till now is the best selling CD by Origen, were challenge to Jean-Michel Jarre, Enigma, and Vangelis.
The credo of Origen is not to be tedious and monotonous in music and life and the next CD Muky Zvoo (http://www.cdbaby.com/origen3) essentially differs from the previous albums. It is bright mix of pop, electronics, rock and new age. The supper hit of the album Dedication to Jim Morrison is one of the best and unusual Origens songs. Nice composition, true Jims voice, perfect performance make indelible impression.
