Ivan & Guido — Winter in Yakutia by Guido Percich Just listen to what a great track Ivan and Guido Percich, of Buenos Aires, Argentina, created. That’s how they were impressed with our cold land and cold winter. Awesome! Thanks, guys!
Enjoy khomus (Yakut Jew’s harp) music and images of Yakutia in the amazing video slideshow created by Marianna Leontieva in 2008. The author lives in Moscow and she called the video «Khomus… A Yakutian’s Nostalgia…» Think, no additional info is required. By the way, Yakutsk will host the 7th International Jew’s Harp Society Congress on June 23-26, 2011. It will be held right before the Yasyakh national holiday celebration in the area of Ys Khatyn near Yakutsk. My god, my fingers are crossed, don’t want to miss this…
Look at what type of fur clothes the Sakha people had in the past. A play staged by the Sakha Theater in Yakutsk, Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Russia. More videos, photos and posts about Sakha Theater.
Saina, Yakutsk-based Siberian ethno singer, will give her first big solo concert in Moscow on Dec. 18th, 2010. The event will be hosted in the «DOM» concert hall. More show info, think, might be got directly from her through her facebook profile Saina Singer. By the way, she is a fan of the eYakutia — English Yakutia fb page as well. Who is Saina? As I said in my previous post Saina, the singer of Yakutia’s Northern nations, Saina is pretty much able to present herself. Listen to…

David McAlmont and Michael Nyman perform ‘The Coldest Place on Earth’, a new song written specially for Paul Morley’s Showing off… «So here we have That Instrumental from the movie The Piano (you know the one) overlain with David McAlmont’s new, exquisitely sung lyrics inspired by the extremely chilly Siberian city of Yakutsk. Genuinely lovely.» That’s what I found at Metro.co.uk together with the last rumours about Lady Gaga. Fantastic!
The last Sunday in Yakutsk was remarkable with 2010 Etigen Khomus Music Award Ceremony. Etigen Khomus is Yakutia’s annual award granted to singers (variety performers) for their achievements in the course of the past year. This time for 2009. The Etigen Khomus Award Ceremony is held at the end of February or in the beginning of March. It is always a big event. The fantastic show arranged and organized by the Yakutsk Radio Station «Viktoria.» It’s very hard to get entrance tickets. Take a look at LARA’s award…
Think no need to present Saina. She can do it herself. Listen to her audio presentation track with different songs. I can say only that she started as a Yakutsk-based pop singer. Now she prefers to sing songs of northern peoples living in Siberia’s Yakutia. That’s really great.
