misses her native Crimea very much, where she spent her childhood and youth.

On the eve of Easter, the performer recalled how she and her family celebrated this holiday at home.

Despite the fact that the native singers are Crimean Tatars, as a child, the future star and her mother painted eggshells with onion husks and baked paska.

To the warm memories, Jamala added bright photos in an incredible national costume.

"When we celebrated Easter in the Crimea, the day before the holiday, we cooked festive eggs in onions with my mother, and then my mother baked various pastries and pastries. I remember how it is now," Jamala wrote.

Also, the family always gathered together with a neighbor who told many stories about the life of the Crimean Tatars during the deportation.

Jamala shared that it is very valuable for her that the traditions of different peoples and religions are respected in Ukraine. 

"Then we always went to Vera Vasylivna, our neighbor. The grandmother I am talking about knew Crimea from the time of the deportation of the Crimean Tatars and spoke Ukrainian very well. She remembered it as neat, with elegant huts and well-kept vineyards. We visited her and listened for hours to stories about how everything was after the deportation. She and her family were then moved from the Kuban to the house of the Crimean Tatars. And then we went to the sea, and on the then still cool, but already sunny beach, we could eat and soak our feet. This was also our tradition. My mother went to church. This is my Ukraine, in tolerance! People have always respected the holidays of other people, other religions," the singer shared her memories.
