On 26-28 of May radio Orpheus has hosted in Moscow the 39th Euroradio Folk Festival supported by European Broadcasting Union.

The Festival has attracted 17 collectives from 16 countries – Russia, Estonia, Armenia, Sweden, Belarus, Switzerland, South Korea, Bulgaria, Poland, Czech Republic, Finland, Slovenia, Norway, Spain, Turkey and China.

Each folk performer was entered by EBU Radio Member or Associate. China was represented for the first time in the Festival's history thanks to the Shanghai Media Group entrance in EBU Associate members.

Russia was represented by two performers at once ─ “The Horn Orchestra of Russia” from Saint-Petersburg, entered by radio Orpheus, and solo artist Victor Zhalsanov from Republic of Buryatia, entered by Radio Russia.

“The Horn Orchestra of Russia”, conducted by Sergei Polyanichko, has presented the horn music, popular among Russian Tsars and their courts in XVIII—XIX centuries. The repertoire of the orchestra diversified from the tunes of the Ancient East and Bach’s compositions, through Spanish rhythms to blues and stirring jazz.

Victor Zhalsanov has introduced folk tunes, epics excerpts and ritual songs of Buryatia through the traditional Buryat instruments playing and the different throat singing techniques using.
Audio versions of all the Festival concerts are available to EBU Members and Associates in MUSNew. The duration of one concert is 50 minutes.

More photo-materials from the Festival are available on the radio Orpheus website or the radio Orpheus Facebook group.
