Happy New Year from Russian folk group Otava Yo. If you don’t believe a folk group from Russia can play some rocking Celtic music, just watch the video. This is a brilliant tribute to Scotland and Ireland, with bagpipes too, which are also an instrument used in traditional Russian music.
I know the video says St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s Auld Lang Syne and more with some great Russian influence at the end.
I love this group, Otava Yo from St. Petersburg. Discovered them February 2020 and became instantly hooked. You can find many of their videos on You Tube. They play everything from traditional Russian folk music to Bluegrass to Celtic Rock. Hope you enjoy listening to and watching them.
