V/A - Viryavakay - Oh mother, protectress of the forest. Songs and melodies of the Mordva (2001)



The Mordva are the largest Finno-Ugric people in Russia; in other words they are related to Hungarians, Finns and Estonians, not to the Slavic Russians. This compilation on Dutch label Pan Records presents an overview of their traditional music, featuring fiddles, balalaika, accordion and recorder alongside a whole bunch of singing. There are wedding songs, laments, songs about family and history. There is a bunch of information in the booklet, so check out the scans included.
