The Russkie Musikanti is an ensemble of the Washington Balalaika Society, the largest Russian folk orchestra in the United States. The ensemble wears traditional Russian costumes and performs on authentic Russian folk instruments bringing the music of Russia and Eastern Europe to the broader community. A typical music program includes a sampling of different styles of Russian and Eastern European music, including some music that was especially composed for these folk instruments. There are happy songs and sad songs, songs to dance to and songs to listen to – music that reflects the vastness of Russia and Eastern Europe and the diversity of their people.
