Александр Мукиенко

Interview of the ensemble head - Alexander Mukienko to the correspondent of newspaper « Nasha» ( Latvia): “ The Ensemble was created by myself, with my own initiative – In one’s time I worked as soloist of the Leningrad  Philharmonic , later, in variety art. In 1974 I started to built variety show programs.  Because of my folk art direction and ability to academism – I decide to create my own collective. And this ensemble became the first Cossack ensemble in USSR. First, we had only seven people, right now we have seventy!»
