7 Russian Acoustic Guitar Makers from Bobrovo Russia

Russian Acoustic Guitar Makers from Bobrovo Russia

It might be a surprising fact for you but in Russia there are still a few factories producing guitars. During Soviet times, Russian people had to buy mostly all locally made products, so guitar manufacturers were blooming. Then, Russia opened its markets to foreign merchandise and many ex-Soviet factories went bankrupt. Many think that Russian guitar makers went bankrupt
too and aren't producing anything now, Chinese stuff is cheaper and often better made. However this is not true, and this is one example of an old Soviet guitar maker that is still making acoustic guitars. Thanks to Russian photo blogger Andrei who went there and took photos we can see what the Russian guitar maker looks like from inside.

If you think the Balalaika is to play old Russian national songs on, you are wrong! Frankly, I also considered it for a while to be an outdated instrument that has no place in modern music, however these guys from Astrahan, who call themselves "Villagers", play a  Read more...

International Army Orchestras March thru the Red Square

Marina, one of the best everyday photographers in Russia that I have met so far, has come out again with a cool photo set of the Russian Army Orchestras festival on the Red Square taken at night. Be prepared to see a lot of trained musicians doing all sorts of crazy things in this post,
including throwing their rifles in the air while playing music. You will be able to witness army orchestras in their original national uniform from plenty of countries, like Greece, Pakistan, Russia, Belarus, Belgium, Ireland and many more, even Mexico! Thanks goes to Marina!

6 Mash Up

Mash Up

This is what can be called a "contemporary art". Russian "EUROVISION" song mixed up with
recent Ukrainian chronicles. I am not sure who made this but it sends chills down a spine.

6 Got Master Degree? Now Flee

Got Master Degree? Now Flee

So this is happening - Ukrainian professionals, including these musicians flee to Russia to get at least something instead of fully nothing they can get now in Donetsk, Ukraine and other Eastern parts of the country. Those told to be pretty professional musicians (I hope you can tell by watching them play) now play in underground subway
stations for a heap of change they hopefully can get from the passers by. Some of them were getting their master degree in Donetsk, some already graduated and having master in music. Now this. But main reason for this being posted here is not where they are from, just look how nicely this sounds in metro:
