Russia, 1989, progressive folk / Russian folk

Эпос [Epos]Рок-былина “Илья”: The epic tale of Ilya Muromets, a Middle Ages folk hero of Kievan Rus’ who was granted super-human strength in order to liberate his people, defend them from invaders, and destroy local monsters lurking in forests. Beautiful, mysterious choral vocals sing this narrative in a polyphonic motif, but the traditional is mixed with the modern, fiddles playing right alongside synthesizers, thus seeking Slavic-hero relevance for a contemporary audience.
