HA NOI (VNS) — Belarusian troupes will perform in the northern cities of Ha Noi and Hai Phong as part of Belarus Cultural Days, which will be held from November 2 to 7.
Artistes from two troupes, the I Zhinovich National Academic People's Orchestra of Belarus and Pesnyary, will perform at the Ha Noi Opera House on November 4 and the Hai Phong Opera House on November 5.
Established in 1930, the orchestra is one of the oldest musical groups of Belarus. It laid the foundation for the development of folk music. Its repertoire consists of more than 2,000 pieces of Belarusian folk songs and dances, the original works of Belarusian composers and Russian and foreign classical compositions, besides contemporary music.
The folk-rock band Pesnyary, also known as Pesniary, founded in 1969 by guitarist Vladimir Mulyavin, combines various types of music, but mostly plays Belarusian folk music with psychedelic rock elements. The band often uses lyrics from famous Russian and Belarusian poets of the past.
Entry is by invitation only. — VNS
