Sergey VishnyakovThanks to TronicalTune, it is now dead easy to switch from classical tuning into DADGAD and back. It is highly practical and utterly magical.

The band has played and headlined at such prominent festivals as “Nashestvie”, “Chartova Dyuzhina”, “FolkDay”, Dikaya Myata”, “Krylya”, “Emmaus”, “Ethnolife” etc. The launch of “Dikie Travy” CD in the Olympiyskiy sports hall in 2009 had a full house attendance, as well as the 15-years anniversary of the band in Stadium LIVE in 2014 (5500 ppl).
