Russian Neo Folk and Neo Classical Music
For those that do not know, the prefix Neo means new. This list is a compilation of the many Russian and Ukranian neo folk and neo classical cd`s we have. Neo in these senses means that it`s roots lie in the traditional classical and folk music, but it is a more modern/ new version. I have been very impressed with the music I have heard from all of these bands and most of it is very unique. I know not many people are familiar with a lot of these bands so here is a list and mp3`s. All of these cd`s are currently in stock and have more in depth descriptions in our catalog
Svyatoslav`s Grandsons We have 2 cd`s from this band in stock. The Look For Myself cd has more of a Celtic/ folkish sound to it. The Twine Wreath Of Songs cd is an excellent neo classical cd. Both are dominated by female vocals
Water Wind- Maelstrom is a female fronted band rooted in folk music. This booklet for this cd also has some beautiful artwork
ROS-Mermaid/ Kypala- split cd featuring two female fronted bands rooted in folk music. This is my personal favorite of all the cd`s listed here.
Prazdnik- Vo Piry Mlada Byla… is a unique sounding cd revolving around more modern music with a host of female backing vocals
