Content includes bardic traditions (secular and religious songs), seasonal ritual folk songs (winter carols, spring songs), music of life-cycle rituals (weddings, funerals, laments), as well as ballads and instrumental and ensemble compositions. Of significant note are recordings of blind minstrels (kobzari, lirnyky) probably made during the late 1920s and early 1930s before Stalinist purges. The collection includes musical transcriptions of some of the recordings made by folklorists of the period, including Volodymir Kharkiv, as well as accompanying ethnographic photographs of performers and their instruments dating from the turn of the 20th century and from the 1960s.
