Here we are, Sandi on Shamanic Remo Buffalo Drum, Oxana on Komuz, and Sarah on whistle ready for our brand new Intro to our set.
We have been overwhelmed by warm welcome from Festival Organisers, our compere and the sound engineers.
After we have finished playing, kind members of audience both adults and children took time to talk to us, asking questions about our drums.
– Is is a Bodhran?
– No, it’s not, it’s a frame drum.
Our younger spectators told us they were thinking of starting a band themselves.
We wish them best of luck!
Our set consisted of three instrumental pieces:
- Circle Dance
And three pairs of folk songs:
- two Russian
- two Ukrainian and
- two Macedonian
A member of the audience said that the voice and drums blended nicely together.
Another said that she particularly enjoyed the Macedonian songs, because they are so haunting.
And they are. Come to our next gig and listen to Oxana’s brief synopsis of the lyrics. Creepy.
