Arkan, a dance tune popular among the Ukranian Hutsul (from southwestern Ukraine), is often heard at the Ukrainian Heritage Festival in Northeast Minneapolis, an area historically populated by Eastern European immigrants. Natalie Nowytski, of the Ukrainian Village Band, introduced Johnson to the tune, who arranged it in a tango/bolero style, exploring the percussive possibilities of the mandolin, acoustic guitar, and bass flute.
