"The folk ensemble Sibirskaya Vechora was founded in 2000 and consists of students and alumni of the Krasnoyarsk College of Arts and the Krasnoyarsk Academy of Music and Theatre. The full ensemble comprises 10 members (5 men and 5 women) with an average age of 27, all of them professionally trained musicians. Sibirskaya Vechora’s repertoire consists of traditional songs from Siberia and other parts of Russia, in their original form as well as modern adaptations. The songs cover all genres of folk music: wedding and dancing songs, lyrical ballads, limericks, youth celebrations. Some numbers contain theatrical stage elements, such as
an imitation of a scuffle with the use of traditional weapons (knives, axes, clubs, swords). The ensemble also performs folk dances reconstructed from archival materials. The performances are highly interactive – the audience is invited and encouraged to sing along and join the artists in dancing and games."
