A form of sonic vacation was in store for a turnout of about 50 at the Doukhobor Discovery Centre on August 13.
A warm, calm evening at at spot overlooking the Columbia River was a perfect setting for the music of”Namgar.”The quartet, which gets its name from the charismatic female vocalist whom is featured, was pleased to share their brand of exciting and dynamic music with the folks of Castlegar and area.
Preserving and popularizing traditional music from the Mongolia-Siberia region, the group is also experimental and highly skilled and was formed in Moscow. They won over the crowd early, quickly establishing a tasteful, hypnotic groove with their opener.
It was a rewarding mix of something different, giving a great preview of what audiences at upcoming festivals in Robson Valley and Salmon Arm can look forward to.Pictured from left are: Victor, Sergey, Namgar and Evgeny.
