Samovar Russian Folk Music

Back to Photo & Video Galleries

A Samovar is a metal urn, often of brass, with a spigot near its base, widely used in Russia to boil water for tea. Invented in the mid-18th century, the samovar was often a favorite place for families to gather for tea, conversation, and occasionally even music.


Our songs have appeared on the following movie soundtracks:
