Hopak = Gopak

This is a basic version of the staple Ukrainian trad dance tune from the central part of the country. It is no polka. It is Hopak and that`s it.
It is usually played a bit havier and slower than polkas.
There are different variants of Hopak.

nice tune, thanks for posting it.

Great tune.It is very close to the way I know it. A fiddler I know [Hungarian Slovak] puts in a third part .I don’t know if it is a standard variation or a personal thing or if he is joining two tunes together.
Next maybe a Kozachok ?

I also had known a third part for this one…
