Jedna Krv, Jeden Rod, Jedna Zem !
Have some gusli, guys! >.<
I saw, you added them in the "forum" section as well.
Here is a short [5 min] documentary about the traditional instrument of Slovakia, called "fujara".
It's native to the central region of Slovakia, where the shepperds were herding the sheep.
Woah, i love it's higher sounds, and especially original construction!
That's impressive. I've seen those instruments on paintings from about 18th century, I didn't know they're called "Gusli". We have an instrument called "Husle", but it is the violin.
How do you call the violin in Russia?
In Poland, violin is called "skrzypce".
In Russia, it's written as "скрипка", and sounds close enough to Polish, but without sound combination of [rz], and with ending [ka] instead of [ce]. I'm bad at transcriptions, but it looks like [skripka] with analogous latin letters :)
Yes, you got it, it does. That's probably the original Slavic word for it.
Let's ask the Balkan Slavs - Raven, or anyone - how do you say violin in the Balkans?
We say "violina/виолина".Slavic languages are similar a lot. :)
There are so many old epic tales (bylin) about musicians with gusli, and most of all i love the tale about novgorodian merchant Sadko, who played on gusli in the underwater kingdom :D
The picture is from amazing soviet movie about him.
Can you recommend something from the Slovak folklore to read or watch? Truly an interesting theme for me.
I decided to create a music thread in the "Russian army" branch, heh. Well, there is no special section for music and stuff, so who cares? If admin is alive, it would be nice if there was a section for such topics.
You can post it in the videos section ;)
Yes. I thought about it, but at the last moment decided that there's too much i want to show, heh. Just do not want to litter up the video section :D
A good idea.
To post in the video section, you actualy must have the file to upload it there.
To post a link to an audio or video content on the web is possible either here or in that forum section. The good thing about the forum section is that you're creating something like an album or catalog of links.
But it will only work, as far as the content stays in the place, where the links are pointing to.
Last night I tried to upload one video via URL. Usually it works, but now always shows an error. Hm :\
If the video is from YouTube,download it via Free Studio Manager (DVDVideoSoft) or the online YT video downloader.Then just upload it in the videos section. :)
Yay, done. Благодарю!
Oh, no. I uploaded a muted video. Will try one more time tomorrow x)
No need to rush brother.Take your time ;)
Now it works, finally.
