about

In 2009, STARY OLSA celebrated its 10th anniversary and released this album of favorite songs. The Best album is a compilation of the best tunes from previous albums, released before 2009. It is not only the best songs and melodies by Stary Olsa, but this album includes 3 remixes also! No one other album includes them.

The STARY OLSA band of medieval Belarusian music was founded in 1999. At first, the band consisted of musicians from the city of Homieĺ.
It takes its name from a brook in the western part of Mahilioŭ Region. The repertoire of the band includes Belarusian folk balladry and martial songs, works of Belarusian Renaissance composers, compositions from Belarusian aulic music collections (e.g. Polack Notebook, Viĺnia Notebook, Brest Cantional), Belarusian canticles of the 16th – early 17th c., as well as European popular melodies of Middle Ages and Renaissance.
The music of the band is performed on the most accurate possible copies of old aged instruments such as duda (bagpipe), lira (lyre), husli (Baltic psaltery), svireĺ (reed pipe), surma (Belarusan trumpet), lutnia (lute), cystra (cister), šalmiej (shawm), rebiek (rebec), and others. They completely reconstruct the musical traditions of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, where there was a unique synthesis of Belarusian folk and aulic music with European musical achievements.
