I would us to post in this topic videos with interesting contemporary folk interpretations. What I understand under "contemporary folk interpretations"? I'll cite a passage from Femi Kuti's album "(…) so you taking your roots and transform it into something contemporary" – it could be a folk music but played in contemporary, electronic instruments or mix of folk music and contemporary music styles or folk music played in new modern arrangement. Of course I mean SLAVIC folk
Here are some of examples:
Too much reggae but still inspiration comes from Slavic folk:
Pleas post a video if you know anything like aboveNovember 7, 2012 at 10:02 am #402205November 7, 2012 at 12:43 pm #402206
Great threat =]
This is native Siberian song but the only version available on the we is interpretation by Веданъ Колодъ and Аркона.
It's a song about women who hung her husband , quite romantic I must say xD

Bulgarian are the masters of Gaida! And those Koleda masks! IMO We have not preserved in eastern Slavic Koleda masks and bagpipe playing as much as Bulgarians have.November 7, 2012 at 1:37 pm #402208
Song of Marija Arhipova sounds nice but still very traditional
Lazar Kanewski reminds me a bit Hevia but sounds less artificial because he's using traditional instrument.

This is modern version of Ukrainian song , it's a little bit too ''modern'' for my taste but I enjoy the vocal parts since I can't find more traditional version xD
It's quite catchy xD
Пасла дівка лебедей — Etno hory 341 — ( ukraine music duliby дуліби )
And this is the same song played by Polish band Percival.

@Ингва: Bilija Krstić… isn't it a Serbian name? Song is very nice, I like it.
@Sviatogor: Ivan Kupala is just great. I think that Grzegorz z Ciechowa (Grzegorz Ciechowski) was inspired by him when he recorded his album "Oj da dana".
