Folk Concerts

Professional folk groups perform for you their best concerts!

Enjoy the sound of traditional Russian instruments played masterly by the musicians - domra or balalaika, button accordion, and tambourine seem to be living their own lives, speaking to the listeners and telling their story.

The musical instruments are played solo as well as they accompany the traditional Russian songs, gypsy romances, cossak songs, and "chastushkas", which are humorous rhymes (often improvised and sung in a string of others as a folklore tradition).

Absorbed in the atmosphere, you are likely to start singing along with the performers!

Thrilling melodies and charming voices, lively colours of national folk costumes will produce unforgettable impressions!
