Ana Kiri Dedicates New Song to Her Native Ukraine
Although Ana Kiri is now based in Miami, Florida, she is always and forever a proud Ukrainian. With the upheaval and war going on in the Ukraine, Ana Kiri felt it necessary to release a track dedicated to showing the world what it means to be Ukrainian, and the relentless spirit and fight Ukrainians have. The war has brought much destruction, devastation, and pain. But, “Beat of Freedom” is less so a sad song, but a song that accentuates the strength in us all and provides listeners with the message to never give up.
The freedom anthem was written by Ana Kiri with some assistance from Jack R. Hardman. Ana Kiri also threw on her producer hat and co-produced “Beat of Freedom” alongside gifted producers Jaki Nelson and Luke Villemur. The lyric video was created by the ultra-talented Claudia Sobradillo.
“Beat of Freedom” is a powerful and inspiring patriotic fight song about the struggles of the Ukraine. “Freedom or death – that is the core spirit of every Ukrainian.” Ana Kiri continues: “It was true for us in the Orange Revolution. It was true for us during the Maidan Revolution, and it is the same for us today. We know who we are, and we have an absolute right to exist. The heartbeat of Ukrainians is the ‘beat of freedom.’ Without freedom, our hearts will just stop. Freedom is our truth. It is our spirit, and who we are. We are Cossacks!”
