Center for World Performance Studies | PERFORMANCE TALKS: adaptation

Russian Renaissance
Wednesday, January 24, 2018
4:00-5:15 PM
Keene Theater East Quadrangle Map
Russian Renaissance brings together tradition and modernity in unique crossover and fusion styles, employing the balalaika (a Russian stringed instrument with a unique triangular body), domra (a long-necked Russian string instrument from the lute family), button accordion, and contrabass balalaika. This quartet prides themselves on presenting high-calibre traditional folk music through a modern, vibrant, and enticing lens. For this talk, members of Russian Renaissance discuss working and collaborating within the large international chamber arts landscape.

UMS presents Russian Renaissance at Rackham Auditorium on Saturday, January 27 at 8:00pm.
