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.

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!
