Stary Olsa is a medieval band from Minsk, Belarus that has played throughout Europe. As an experiment they have played classic rock songs by Metallica, Deep Purple or The Beatles using their medieval instruments – and they had a big success with their performances and their youtube videos.
Now thay have just started a kickstarter campaign to produce their album “Medieval Classic Rock” – maybe you like to support this project?
