Uzbekistan will get acquainted with song-like radiance of the White sea

The tour of the State Academic Northern Russian Folk Choir in Uzbekistan will take place within the framework of the international project Russian Seasons. The concerts are scheduled for 16 and 17 November. The Russian Seasons project is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The choir will present the program Song-like Radiance of the White Sea based on cultural traditions of the Russian North. The program features songs collected in different areas of the Arkhangelsk region. Among them – Kak u Stolbyshka Totsenogo (By a Chiseled Column) from Leshukonsky district, Tiho Stonet Sine More (Quietly Moans the Blue Sea) from Mezensky district, the  Big Pinezh round dance Khozhu Ya Po Travke (Walking on the Grass), chastushki (four line folk couplets) from Solvychegodsk area and other songs and dances.

“Some of these songs were recorded far back to the beginning of the 20th century in the places where they emerged: on the Mezen, on Pinezhye, in the Kotlas district of the Arkhangelsk region. Some other songs were composed by contemporary authors, but based on traditional culture. These are: the dance Merrymaking on Lacha by Denis Chalykh, the songs of the Arkhangelsk author Sergei Grigoriev Falcon and Russian North, which our audience always receives with a storm of applause,” said director of the Northern Choir Natalya Asadchik.

In 2019, the choir already performed at the invitation of Russian Seasons in Germany, and in 2020, the company participated in the Russian Seasons online project Stay Home with Russian Seasons.
