The «Russia» Ensemble has opened the first platform for the comprehensive promotion of Russian folk art online.

Russian Folk Ensemble "Russia" officially opened the first platform for the comprehensive promotion of Russian folk art online space "VCC" (Virtual Cultural Center) on June 29.

The ensemble held a concert in a new format — live on its updated official website. The concert host, artistic director and conductor of the ensemble Dmitry Dmitrienko greeted the audience for the first time in the recording studio, where the creator of the ensemble Lyudmila Zykina worked for many years.

"The concept of the new project is to give the audience the opportunity to visit this unique place, to see the studio and the memorial office of the singer, where, unfortunately, it is impossible to invite the audience. The VCC was created to promote Russian national art and unite all Russian song lovers" - said Dmitry Dmitrienko.

"Turn on the ensemble! — - the name of the concert is a call to the listeners of the collective and, in general, the fate of the project…" - says director Vyacheslav Kornichenko.
