A Russian folk dance and music ensemble Barynya from New York performed at the Slavic Festival on Saturday, January 6th and Sunday, January 7th, 2007 in Eugene, Oregon. Festival was organized by Slavic Home www.slavichome.org
We performed at the same stage as the last year.
The best job at the Russian Fest in Eugene, OR is to be a Russian Father Frost. It takes about 10 minutes to become one.
Our beautiful dancers Valentina Kvasova, Natalia Ejova and Ganna Makarova also participated in traditional Russian New Year'a tale (ÍÎÂÎÃÎÄÍßß ÑÊÀÇÊÀ) about some scary things written in Portland, Oregon. It was our pleasure to be part of that. I felt like actors enjoyed the story as much as kids in the audience.
Valentina is performing some serious don-cossack magic upon 7-string guitar case of Vadim Kolpakov.
Famous contrabass balalaika player Leonid Bruk is famous not only because he likes to take pictures with beautiful dancers and musicians.
Everyone is looking for a friendship or love in Eugene. And everyone is finding it on every corner.
Ganna Makarova and Vadim Kolpakov are performing Gypsy Dance "Two Guitars"
Our friends from Russian dancer company "Canary" from Los Angeles, California, singer Sasha Menshikov and Valentina Kvasova also have joined Ganna and Vadim
Everything was great until M.N and Y.N have decided to bring thier own flavor into the evening
Everything went wrong after that
KGB people were drinking top water and recording closely every move. Furtunately they were not taking any actions. Most likely they were just waiting for some order from Moscow that never arrived
