Cossack songs, music and dance program presented by singers, dancers and musicians of New York based ensemble Barynya, artistic director Mikhail Smirnov. This program includes Cossack folk songs, dances and performances on Russsian folk instruments: balalaika, bayan, garmoshka, balalaika contrabass, and domra.

Two singers, two dancers and two musicians will provide a full show with all costumes, songs and dances listed on this page. For the best quality of the show we would suggest 4 musicians (balalaika, balalaika-contrabass, bayan, garmoshka). All our choreography can be done with one, two, three or more couples. The best performance is with four couples, but if the space of the stage or the budget does not allow that many dancers the show can be performed with two dancers.
