Folk Box: Christmas melodies


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

…Oh, how glorious it is, to be in the midst of a whirlwind of merry activity, what with the host of holidays assailing us. The joy of Christmas, the invariable anticipation of something remarkable – isn’t it always the case at New Year’s! Of course, our ‘special’ edition of “Folk Box” is all about it!

Any fan of folklore will tell you outright: there is no better gift than a shimmering, bright, sparkly and joyous winter garland of Christmas melodies. Here they are with us today!
