Siberia to host ethnic music festival
One of the gems of the festival is the ethno-rock band Yat-Kha from Tuva led by Albert Kuvezin, who is known for his exceptionally deep voice.
Other participants in the festival include World Music performer Inna Zhelannaya and the ethno band Ayarkhaan which plays Yakut khomus music on instruments that imitate the cello, the saxophone, the electric guitar and at least one third of symphony orchestra instruments.
Guests of the festival include the band Hazmat Modine from the US which plays a mixture of blues, reggae, retro swing, klezmer, country, and gypsy music.
Tuareg guitarist Bombino is also set to impress the audiences at the festival.
