This is a meeting of the two instruments with a history Dating back to the distant past…
Sitar and Harp.
Three ancient Indian melodies and three ancient Russian tunes intertwine in the after-sounds…
Since ancient times, the gusli in the form of a helmet were associated with the art of singing runes and folk tales, epics — heroic and Patriotic songs-tales, telling about the exploits of Russian heroes and reflecting the life of Ancient Russia IX—XIII centuries.
Each of them is unique, each has a unique and recognizable sound, the combination of them fascinates and immerses us in the world of unique sounds of extraordinary depth and transparency…
