Juliana and PAVA

Juliana and PAVA  – a vocal ensemble from Seattle performing Russian folk songs.

Beautifully harmonized, these songs have been integrated into the fabric of rural life for centuries, carried on from generation to generation only through oral tradition. Some of the songs are performed a cappella, while others are accompanied by authentic folk instruments, such as the Russian hurdy-gurdy, balalaika, various flutes or percussion instruments.
