Intimate Concert with Saina
Saina is an indigenous singer from the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Russia. She
comes from a mixed heritage of native Siberian people, the Sakha and the Evenk.
Saina performs songs that have been passed down through generations. She
studied with tribal elders throughout Siberia, and she strives to maintain the
authentic tone and intonation of these ancient songs. Saina sings in the
traditional style and plays instruments like the khomus and the shamanic drum.
Her repertoire is a rich illustration of the Siberian landscape. The themes range
from shamanic rituals and celebratory songs to simple tunes that accompanied
the everyday life of Siberian nomadic peoples. Saina has presented the culture of
her ancestors in the USA, Canada, Mongolia, China, Spain, France, Italy, Japan,
Kazakhstan, Turkey, Egypt, Bulgaria and more.
