The first few members of Spasenie Band from Belarus started performing in '89 in parks, on the street, and in churches. Their combined musical talent is unrivaled and they have toured extensively in Belarus, Russia, Europe, the US, South Africa, and Canada. The electric violin is the crowning glory of the band, lending that extra touch of class that puts them out front. They have a marvelous stage presence that makes for engaging concerts. Audiences are irresistably drawn in. Though the band members all come from Russian culture, this album addresses issues and questions that everyone faces and it addresses them artfully.
