Dreams of a Russian Summer
Somewhere in the Siberian Taiga...
Golosa has been singing and celebrating traditional Russian folk music in Chicago since 1997. They sing a wide range of Russian folk music but primarily dedicate their practice to that of the Semeiskie Old Believers of the Trans-Baikal.
They have traveled to Tarbagatay and communed with their friends in the choir Sud'binushka in the past but had not traveled back in over 12 years. Having been a fan of the choir and friends with a few members, I knew about this upcoming trip for years and knew that it needed to be documented. I could not have imagined the journey it would take me on.
The documentary is in post-production.
