Timofeyev/Kolpakov Russian-Roma LIVE
Join Barney Sherman Monday at 2PM as two of the world's foremost Russian guitarists perform LIVE in IPR's studios. Oleg Timofeyev is renowned internationally both as a performer and as a musicologist who has rediscovered lost repertory. Vadim Kolpakov is one of the most prominent Russian Roma (Gypsy) 7-string guitarists of our time; previously he was lead musician of the Moscow Roma Theatre Romen, where he performed as a guitarist, composer, vocalist, dancer and dramatic actor. The two will focus on the intersection of Russian and Roma (gypsy) music going back to era of the great Russian novelists.
