Last weekend, friends of mine, Oe Karpov and Andrey Dyakonov, arranged the great event. It was a BIG city event, but done in a TINY manner. They rented a wooden house in the wooden part of Yakutsk City, invited close friends and let the rock music sound in all power and authenticity.
Yeah, it was the «103» rock band performing the unique ethno Siberian heavy music. It was utterly awesome!
Frankly, I am a big fan of «103». Like its story. It is a little group of young people, who arrived into the city from a little Yakutian village called Khatassy by the public bus «103» a few years ago. This village is mainly known as the producer of pork & beef. Nothing special could appear over there, apart from the delicious meat.
And here they are. Authentic ethno rock music! Delivered by guys, who learned to play musical instrument themselves in a little wooden village hall. By the way, they use the sound of the khomus, Yakut Jews-harp instrument.
Immediately they became popular in Yakutsk. They are one of the most respected bands in the city. And you know what? It’s hard to see them performing currently, as the rock music is their hobby. They are ordinary guys, who have ordinary jobs and who, apart from one guy, still live in the village. The singer, for instance, works in a store as a customer manager. Why? They need to feed their kids.
When they take instruments, they became extremely extraordinary!
Check below the event’s photographs & videos. See their official videos (think, they’ve got two only) and download mp3 tracks for free.
Please, tell your friends around the world about the existence of the great Siberian band «103»!
