Stary Olsa coming all the way from Belarus in Eastern Europe will be performing Tuesday March 28th at Flamingo Cantina in downtown Austin! Only $5!
9-10:30 The Mazel Tov Kocktail Hour (Austin’s own!)
11-12:30 Stary Olsa

*STARY OLSA is a medieval Belarusian music band with a repertoire including Belarusian folk balladry and martial songs, national dances, works of Belarusian Renaissance composers, compositions from aulic music collections, Belarusian canticles of the 16th – early 17th centuries, as well as European popular melodies of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. (STARY OLSA also plays rock music on medieval instruments — eg. the Beatles, Metalica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, et cetera.) STARY OLSA uses for its performances maximal exact (in appearance, technology and materials) copies of old aged Belarusian instruments such as Belarusian bagpipe, lyre, gusli (Baltic psaltery) , svirel (reed pipe), jew’s-harp, ocarina, Belarusian trumpet, birch bark trumpet, hudok (Belarusian rebec), tromba marina and drums. The purpose is to completely reconstruct (whenever possible) musical traditions of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania where Belarus was the main cultural and geopolitical part in the 13th – 18th centuries, and where there was a unique combination of Belarusian folk and aulic music with European musical achievements of that time.
