Talented Percussionists Make Beautiful Music Upon the Frozen Waters of Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia
In 2012, talented percussionists from the Irkutsk, Russia group Ethnobeat gathered together in -20 Celsius weather, 6 hours from their home, in order to make beautiful music upon the frozen waters of Lake Baikal. The Siberian lake is known as the oldest, deepest and clearest lake in the world, which made for a beautiful array of sound as the ice was drummed, cleared and smashed. The idea for the project came from a small accident, per the Siberian Times.
The wife of one of our drummers, Sergei Purtyan, slipped and fell down, and as she landed on the ice, she made a very musical ‘boooooom’ sound – so nice and deep that her husband, who has a very good ear, said ‘Hold on, what was it? How did you make that noise?’ She laughed but then got curious, too, and they started touching and drumming on the bits of ice, realising it was making a melody. He recorded it on the phone, got back to Irkutsk and let us listen, asking if we might want to go together to the same spot and try and record our ice drumming.
