Slik - The Boogiest Band In Town

If you watch it and think the lead guitarist/backing singer looks familiar, it is Midge Ure of  Ultravox and Band Aid fame. This was their one and only hit.

I heard this band live some 20 years ago. The genre is called "Siberian ethno-rock". One of their earlier albums was called "Yenisei punk".

Russian/USSR regional folk music was not particularly popular or hip, but it was there. Every republic (and "autonomous republic") had at least one favoured folk band. After the collapse of USSR, some of those bands - often less favoured ones - went viral.

Yat-Kha is from Tuva. Also Sergei Shoigu, Russia's current minister of defence, responsible for conducting the war against Ukraine (also responsible for stealing all the tank and airplane gas prior to the war, because he had not been informed that an actual war would start very soon), is from Tuva and reasonably popular among his people. Also Tuva is officially the poorest constituent region of Russia. Siberian ethno-rock and Central Asian classical folk music help me thoroughly disconnect from everything when I want, so that I think no thoughts for days and the world becomes a formless pile of random trivia.

That so needs a banjo. Seriously.
