ARIADNA(voice) and SEFARAD-ensemble was founded in 2001. The creative work of the group and her soloist Ariadna are unique in the Russian music life's conditions. The musical approach of the group is quite untraditional, combining the material of Jewish melodies and songs (Ashkenasies and Sefards) with the principles of contemporary improvisational interpretation.
his approach, however, does not destroy the charm of original folklore material, but opens it to listener from new, unexpected direction, giving old music a new life. Romanticism and passion, humour and lyricism and Ariadna's surprising voice create a unique sound of the ensemble. Their concerts on different stages in Saint-Petersburg, Moscow and the other Russian cities and towns have usually a great success.
