Domra and Guitar – Russian Folksong and Flamenco

Roman Gurochkin is a cameraman and photographer from St. Petersburg, Russia, and his wife is a classical guitarist. Roman has produced several high quality music videos, including two videos with domra and guitar.

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.
