I wrote this song when we prepared for a gig at “Мир Сибири” (“World of Siberia”) folk festival with Street Fiddlers, which was in the summer of 2016.
However, I sketched the initial version far from Siberia – I did that on my laptop in Italy while I was going by a train from one city to another.
But of course writing down the sketch is the result of working on some drafts – sometimes over years. The initial idea of the main melody came to me on 24th of June 2015.
This song is strongly inspired by beautiful and mighty Siberian nature and the spirit of Siberian people. I love hiking and I used the picture taken in a wild place called “Golden Valley” near Hunuhuzuk lake as the album art for this release. You can find the lyrics here.
