Last year I watched some videos of Victor Solomin and his band. Victor plays the domra, but he does not only play traditional and classical music on his domra, but also a lot of jazz with his band.
Today I found a new video of Victor Solomin with a great performance of Libertango by Astor Piazzolla played on the domra with piano accompanyment:
Victor Solomin Fantazia to Libertango by Astor Piazzolla Victor Solomin domra Alexey Bogolubov piano
I first found Victor Solomin’s profile when I looked for recordings of Stings song Fragile. Victor Solomin played a fantastic version of Fragile on his Domra:
Fragile (Sting) – Played by Victor Solomin and his Band – Domra
You can also find an interesting version of “Spain” by Chick Corea and many more jazz videos, also a set of classical performances of compositions by J. S. Bach and Schmittke
Totally different is the following new song by Nadin Branitskaya and the Solomin Band:

The domra is a plucked instrument from Russia similar to a mandolin. It has 3 or 4 single stings tuned in fifths. You can find more information about the domra in the wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domra or in the Atlas of plucked instruments http://www.atlasofpluckedinstruments.com/europe2.htm
The first piece is a Russian folk song arranged for domra and guitar by M. Sheinkman. In the second piece you can see and hear the domra playing a piece in flamenco style.
