Today the streets of villages, towns rarely hear the tunes of any musical instrument. And if you hear, then most likely it will be an accordion or a balalaika, and still 50-60 years ago, the silence of the village street was violated by the naughty tunes of fiddles, horns, zhaleyka, whistles, kugiklah and other musical instruments. All this music has helped people in their hard peasant life.

This disc is made up of traditional instrumental numbers and songs of various regions of Russia and an attempt to restore and preserve historic musical heritage of the Russian people.

Folklore Ensemble "Ulitsa" (Street) was created in 2007, with graduates of the Children's Folklore Ensemble "Veretentse".

The main direction of the ensemble - the reconstruction and reconstitution of traditional instrumental music of Russia in its original, historically etc. including unique karagodnaya mnogoinstrumentalnaya tradition Kursk region and artisanal trublya on horns Vladimir, Vladimir, Kostroma, and Ivanovo Oblast.

For the most accurate and complete transfer of the samples performed music all team members involved in research activities related to finding the necessary materials in the literature, numerous folklore expeditions, in folklore and ethnographic records. Made by specialists, ethnographers over the last 100 years, etc...

Many of the tools that are, for whatever reason, it was not possible to buy or they are not suitable for certain parameters, director and team members make them themselves, having mastered the tradition of literary descriptions of manufacture or as a result of the extensive work of forwarding. Thus, traditional manufacturing, but today most of them neglected musical instruments, and collecting and performing traditional music for them, the ensemble "Ulitsa" gives a new life for centuries existed in Russia music.

Unlike professional instrumental ensembles of folk ( "Andrew") direction, the purpose of performing the activities of this small group is not only a propaganda tool of Russian culture and art, as well as its practical development through a comprehensive study. The challenges that are posed in front of the head and members of the ensemble: The study of the ethnographic context, closest to the original folklore, playing on makeshift neusovershenstvovannyh musical instruments, the preservation of one of the main principles of existence of the oral tradition of music - improvised basis variability and performance (music). This requires serious training (education), multi-expedition work, mastering the technology and manufacturing practices of folk instruments, and most importantly - a genuine love for the ordinary people and its art.

All participants in the ensemble of traditional instruments muzitsiruyut are at least 10 years old, and some of them in the ensemble "Veretentse" have done so since childhood. Their teachers were: Bocharova MA, Glamazdina FN, Kosheleva AA, Krasilnikov S., polar fox, ES, Kiselev GV and other folk singers. Therefore, they gradually attained such a high level of performance technique and expressiveness.
