VGmates - Started All Anew

VGmates - Started All Anew
So, what type of music do we play? This is probably the hardest question anyone could ask because our music varies a lot and actually doesn’t fall into any of the existing categories, such as “folk”, “world”, “country” etc. We would probably call it “folk with a twist” 😊. So what is the “twist”? We combine traditional folk music instruments such as tin whistle and balalaika with modern music instruments such as bass guitar and drums and top it up with use of modern technologies such as loopers and synthesisers to get full and original sound.

Our music is truly original. We find it very inspiring to create our own music and that’s why we never play covers.

There are five of us, but let’s count the musical instruments. Of course, there are traditional ones which every band has – acoustic and electric guitars, bass and drums. But here are more rare instruments – Irish flute (or tin whistle), duclar (a hybrid of Armenian duduk and clarinet), vargan, futujara, kalyuka (Russian overtone flute), kalimba, balalaika, ocarina, percussion instruments (bongos, congas, bodhran, etc.). We actually love trying new instruments, so we always keep our eyes open for unusual ones.

About this track...

A mix of traditional (and less traditional) instruments from different cultures such as Irish tin whistle and Russian balalaika, Siberian jaw harp and Irish bodhran, kalyuka (Russian overtone flute) and kalimba, as well as futujara, violin, guitars, throat singing, drums and percussion. The song got some Irish and Celtic flavour.
