Russian traditional songs of the Western Siberia performed by Vasilyev Vecher Folklore Ensemble
Vasilyev Vecher Folklore Ensemble means St. Basil’s Day Eve, one of the most popular Russian traditional feasts. Ensemble looks for traditional culture’s place in modern life. The members of the group study vocal and dancing culture of Russian old-timers of the Western Siberia (i.e. the descendants of peasants who came there in XVI–XVIII centuries), and also their costume, cuisine, feasts, and traditional crafts.
