Ethnic band Ivan Kupala has become one of the most popular Russian bands, though they've only presented their first album a month ago. Live version of this project consists not of old grandmas, but of young Moscow folk-acts - Natalia Kotova, Tanya Yarchenko, Tanya Starchevskaya, Ira Muzaleva. The founders of the project - Alexey Ivanov, Alexey Rumiantzev and Denis Fedorov - are creating the unique "kupala" sound. On January 1st Ivan Kupala official Web-site is to be launched: www.ivankupala.da.ru - a work by St Petersburg musician Alexey Vishnya. In January the band will also make their second video.
