This concert is an event of cosmic dimensions – like the birth of a supernova!
Musicians whose creative search takes its roots in the Yugra have got together in order to bring to life their new ideas and flights of fancy. The synthesis of diverse instruments in this concert is truly extraordinary. It creates anticipation of a specific timbre and draws the audience's attention to the exclusivity of the musical content.

Dmitry Zhdanov is a saxophonist, teacher and founder of the outstanding project “Dolce Melody” (Moscow)

Alexey Peresidliy is a polystylist musician, composer of accordion music, founder of musical projects, art performances and writer (Khanty-Mansiysk)

Andrey Popov is an improviser and multi-instrumentalist. He is a skillful performer on the electric balalaika and has been promoting this instrument for more than 10 years (Khanty-Mansiysk)

These outstanding musicians, winners of Russian and international contests, come together to give us light, pure energy, a storm of emotions and an ocean of positive feelings!

The concert program features catching, expressive melodies that impress with the perfect balance of such complex instruments as the accordion, the saxophone and the electric balalaika and an outstanding musical performance culture.
