Firebird is music from the heart of Ukraine and Russia performed by a unique ensemble.
Founded in 1995, Firebird is building a reputation as a unique, dynamic, and accomplished group of musicians performing on Russian traditional instruments.
The Domra: A string instrument with a thin fretted neck and round body first appearing in written records at the end of the 15th century.
The Balalaika: A triangular-bodied Russian instrument well known to Western audiences from the film Doctor Zhivago.
The Bayan: A member of the accordion family popular in Russia and Ukraine.
Firebird’s repertoire ranges from traditional Russian and Eastern European songs to well-known classics and works of contemporary composers.
