Biography

“Kazachiy Krug” (Cossack Circle) group under the creative management of Vladimir Skuntsev was created in 1986 in Moscow on principle of compatriot association on the basis of the studio of amateurs of Cossack songs at Cultural Center of the “Serp i Molot” factory. The repertoir of this group are favourite songs of the Cossacks of Don, Kuban, Ural, Siberia, Terek.

Unlike other groups and the Cossack choruses, that perform ancient Cossack songs from partitas and in arrangement, “Kazachiy Krug” has chosen another way. Vladimir Skuntsev and his adherents do not simply copy the performers. Songs and folk tunes which they perform, sound the manner they are “played” by the Cossacks. During many years the participants of the group left in folkloric and ethnographic expeditions, studying traditions of the vocal transfer of songs. That was the foundation of the new school of performance.

The musical instruments which sound in the compositions are interesting and original: wheel lyre - “the Don ryley”, alary gusli, vargan (Jew’s-harp), borrowed by the Cossacks from Kalmyks, cane pipes, zhaleyka (horn pipe), Cossack tambourine, wooden spoons, snaffle, Russian accordion, balalaika, mandoline, violoncello, guitar, violin.

    «Христос воскрес!» из уст польется (Вино по рюмочкам польется / Пизда по кочкам пронесётся / Тать лихой в ночи крадётся / Совковым цензорам неймётся) — такая жизнь не для меня!
