Belarusian band «Stary Olsa» occupies a unique position at the intersections where past meets present, tradition mingles with innovation, and contemporary creative expression has demanded the cultivation of skills that date back to the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

It is a diverse group of musicians who share a common love of history. They play bagpipes, flutes, shaums, lute, rebec, tromba marina, and percussion (including wooden shoes), with front man Aleys belting out vocals in Belarusian.

The band has recorded twelve albums of traditional Belarusian ballads, martial songs, and canticles in addition to popular European songs from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Their most current album “Medieval Classic Rock,” was something crazy and new: they «covered» some modern rock songs on their primitive instruments.

Stary Olsa’s aim is to not only introduce U.S. audiences to
the beauty of the Belarusian culture and the richness of its age-old
musical traditions, but also show how much it has in common with modern rock classics.
