A spectacular song and music concert by Russian Band “Yakhontoviy Lar”, organised to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Russia and India at the Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC) on April 22, 2017, captivated the Delhi audience.
“Yakhontoviy Lar” literally means “A box containing a unique collection of jewellery”. The band performed groovy music on Russian national instruments. Their distinctive feature is the ability to find positive moments in the most ordinary things. That is why they sing with humour even about something sad. And why should they be serious if it is much easier to live with a smile on a face.
The presentation by artists was replete with hilarious and jovial moods and gestures, which prompted the audience to enjoy to the zenith. The audience, packed to the capacity of the concert hall of the RCSC, gave standing ovation and profuse applause from time to time. At some points of time, the artists came down the stage and encouraged a section of the audience to dance with them in harmony with their music and song.
The artists performed famous Russian folk and traditional songs as well as contemporary songs to the ardent interest of the audience.
“Yakhontoviy Lar” has become loved and admired by people in many towns and cities in Russia, Germany, Italy, Latvia, UAE, Belgium, Belarus and Kazakhstan. They regularly perform on different stages on city events as well as on corporate events.
After the performance, H.E. Mr. Bulat Sarsenbayev, Ambassador of the Republic of Kazakhstan to India, along with Prof. Ramadhikari Kumar, President, Indian Association of Teachers of Russian Language and Literature (INDAPRYAL), and Mr. Fedor A. Rozovskiy, Director, RCSC, felicitated the artists.
