Don Cossack Balalaika
Rostov Balalaika is renowned as the famous virtuoso ensemble of Russia – a celebration of Russian folk art combining music, song and dance in an exciting experience from the Don Cossack region of Russia.
Rostov Balalaika performs in magnificent traditional costume and includes balalaika players from prima to contra-bass, accordion and percussion players, male and female singers and a company of dancers. Explanations are given by the group presenter.
Russian song and dance is inevitably about love, life and Russia – intermingled with peasant comedy. Audiences the world over have given these envoys of Russian folk art an emotional and enthusiastic response.
