gralitsa
On the one hand Gralitsa is a world music trio formed in Kostroma, Russia in 2014. The members are Olga "Gralitsa" Rodionova (vocals, ethnic winds, arrangements, artworks and design), Serge Tsymliakov (bass, guitar, domra, sound modules, arrangements, recordings), Gennadiy Kiselev (the brass, ethnic wind instruments, Russian horn).

The collective released their debut album, Gralitsa, on 16 August 2014. It can be described as a jazzy folk trip with avant-garde dimensions, highly emotional electronic perspectives and expressive turns of classical music.

Lead vocalist Olga Rodionava declares that Gralitsa has no aspiration for making music riveted to one appointed genre associated with folk and world music scene. Quite the contrary, the band is always in a state of exploring musical fields and practically every idea, arrangement and recording they make is an act of improvising based on or inspired by beloved authentic Russian folk music traditions.

And on the other hand Gralitsa is a Russian folk ensemble founded and conducted by Olga Rodionova. The basis of Gralitsa folk ensemble’s repertoire is the unique Kostroma folk singing tradition.

Therefore creative unity Gralitsa combines: Gralitsa world music trio and Gralitsa folk ensemble.

Theodor Bastard

Saint Petersburg, Russia
Theodor-Bastard
The history of the band begins in 1996 when Fedor Svolotch took interest in noise music experiments. Later other musicians joined the band, and there was their future vocalist Yana Veva among them. In 2004 THEODOR BASTARD recorded and released their sixth album "Pustota" which became the turning point in the history of the band. The album instantly became famous among various listeners in Russia as well as in foreign countries. A year later "Pustota" was released in three more countries. In this work Fedor managed to find a successful combination of electronic beats and ethnic instruments. And Yana Veva, who has rare vocal timbre, performed the main vocal parts using specific singing techniques which referred the listeners either to oriental musical tradition, or to Balkan and Russian folklore.

Every following album of THEODOR BASTARD was released in its own specific style: the album "Sueta" was compiled of the live records made on the European tour, the album "Beloe" reflected Fedor and Yana's ardour for the Slavic mythology and Russian folk, and the last single "Tapahula" has shown new interests of the band: the culture of Mesoamerica and rhythms of Africa. But along with that, along with breaking stylistic and conceptual limits, THEODOR BASTARD has always been true to themselves and known for their sound and approach.
