Melnitsa-Russian folk rock music
Melnitsa is a popular Russian folk rock band. Their astonishing music (guitar, harp, flute, cello, bass, and drums) fuses Russian, Irish and other North European folk influences with guitar pop/rock. The lead singer and primary songwriter – Natalia O’Shea “Hellawes”- is an academic and a specialist in many medieval European languages. Her expertise lends original lyrics full of fascinating legends and tales.
