Dobranotch

Dobranotch Russia

Russia’s Dobranotch performs its own irreverent brand of Jewish, Gypsy and Balkan traditional music, drawing on deep knowledge of traditions, rich experience in traveling and interacting with traditional musicians from different countries. The band’s repertoire also includes Russian songs of the golden age of brass bands. Featuring many of the leading players in Russia’s post-Soviet Jewish music renaissance, the band has toured across more than twenty countries of the world and recorded seven albums. One can hear their music in TV series, feature films and documentaries. The band “Dobranotch” sounds equally convincing on philharmonic stages and in clubs and on open air festivals. It is not uncommon that the musicians of the band come down off the stage to play right among the audience, as their predecessors did at weddings a hundred years ago.
