Samovar Russian Folk Music

Samovar Russian Folk Music Ensemble plays an extensive repertoire of Russian and Ukrainian folk music. Based in the Washington DC area, the group has played extensively throughout the region as well as internationally.

Together since 1997, their colorful costumes and heartfelt traditional tunes have been a favorite at venues including the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage, Smithsonian Museum, Russian Embassy, Hillwood Museum, and many more. Samovar is available to play at your function using as few as two or as many as seven musicians.

Please enjoy a sampling of our music, as well as some pictures and video from past events.

Then contact us to play at your next party or event!
