Folk box: Russian wedding songs



Each week Olga Shapovalova offers to folk music lovers a multicoloured display of customs and traditions, legends and tales, melodies and rythms of Russia.


We welcome you to a traditional Russian wedding. In line with ancient custom, these wedding were particularly often held in autumn. An old-style wedding is a remarkable performance in itself, one that lasted for a whole week.
