Slavonic ethno-band Vedan Kolod (meaning Prophetic Tree) was formed in February 2005 in Siberia, Russia by Tatyana Naryshkina. The group perform neo-pagan folk and medieval folk music inspired by eastern Russian culture, landscapes and history. Vedan Kolod sing in the ancient Russian language and play a variety of traditional insutrments including Slavic bagpipes, flutes, war drums, Scythian horn, and sharkuncy - many reconstructed from scratch by their musical master Valerii Naryshkin. Vedan Kolod conjure the most authentic and powerful Slavic shamanic music. This is pure Rus music devoid of all modern influence.
This is the new 2012 reissue of Vedan Kolod's debut album Племена (Tribes) originally released in 2007 and recorded in 2005.
