Anja & Zlatna is a vibrant ensemble which seeks to preserve the beauty of traditional melodies from the beautiful Balkans and beyond.
Journey through a land imbued with a fascinating and curious history. Russian Caravan features traditional and street songs, exploring dreams, nature and integral questions of existence.
From the ecstatic meditations of ‘Dusha maya pogreshnaya’, to the pensive street poetry of ‘Godi Mchatsya’ (Years Rush) and the patriotic war song ‘Katyusha’, experience the variety of Russian song with some added romance, of songs which became popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
