Balalaika Orchestras
Since the late 19th century, when Vasily Andreyev introduced the modern concept of a Russian Folk Orchestra composed of balalaikas and domras, these orchestras have been founded and continue to thrive in cities throughout the world. This page connects you to some of the balalaika orchestras around the world. Many more exist in Russia and other East European countries. There are also many fine smaller Russian folk ensembles that you can hear in the US, Russia, and elsewhere. You can connect with some of these in the "orchestras" secton of the BDAA website.

While you're here, check out the link to the Ossipov Orchestra website below. It is a new website for one of the best-known Russian Folk Orchestras in the world. And for a short history of the balalaika and balalaika orchestras, see The Magic of Balalaika Music.
