Hi, I wonder if your site can list/suggest the name of the most famous russian folk music CDs or records ever released. I love russian folk music, especially solo singing and the choral women's singing etc. Having a good lists of these can help me to begin my collection?

Thank you for information on folk songs and folk groups. I am working on a Masters degree in Ethnomusicology, specializing in Russian folk music at San Diego State U. I have studied Russian for 2 years. I have 3 questions: 1) Do you know of anyone who has developed a song cycle of songs about the usual life of a girl growing up in 19th century Village Peasant Russia, perhaps in Northern Russia. The song cycle could include songs about the young girl, songs about the girl becoming a woman, getting married and having children and then singing lullabies to her child and perhaps a song about the elderly woman. I know that there are songs for the "wedding play," However, I was thinking about songs throughout a woman's life 2. Do you know if anyone is currently singing Russian wedding laments? If so, how could I find out about it? 3. If I traveled to Russia, how could I study with a expert on Russian folk music or at least find out when folk groups would be performing so that I could listen to the performances for a few weeks in August 2009? Thank You.

I am a second year student and I attended a performance of Russian Folk Dance and Music. I require to conduct a "cultural encounter", as part of a Cultural Anthropology class. Which brings me to why I am contacting you. I wondered if perhaps you can assist me in completing my report by answering a few questions? Quest #1: In Russia, why are the traditional dances and music performed? Quest #2: In Russia, who typically takes part in the traditional dances and music celebrations? Are these performances held regularly? Quest #3: What meaning do these performances hold for those who participate in the performance? I thank you for your art and for your consideration is assisting me in this report. Thank you.

in 1961 while in Japan I bought a 3-record collection of songs by the Moscow Chorus. I had studied and sung some of the songs and I fell in love with those records. I loaned that boxed set of records to a person a couple of years ago. He left the state without returning them. I have looked on, EBAY, etc. on the web and cannot locate a similar set of records. Can someone assist me? Thanks
