BIT Mixtape #8 – …To Vladivostok

bit-playlist-8-final

…To Vladivostok is a musical journey from Eastern Europe to the Russian Far East. Listen to this mixtape through the stream below or by downloading it directly via our Podbean account.

We start in Lithuania and Belarus (historically united in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania) before moving on to the European territories of Russia, while also making a brief stop in Ukraine. In Russia, we go from the Arctic cities of Murmansk and Arkhangelsk down to Moscow and into the Siberian heartlands surrounding Krasnoyarsk. Our final stop is beyond the borders of Mongolia, in the Russian Far East. An epilogue captures the spirit shared by many of the visited territories, and recalls a brief memory of what once was, way back in the West of Europe.

This mixtape includes both traditional and modern interpretations of folk music; a capella songs as well as instrumentals, connecting music that is both wildly varied and spiritually alike.
