IzumRUd band
Classical Music Band
Yekaterinburg, Russia


The IzumRUd band exists as a professional band since 1995 in Sverdlovsk State Academic Musical Comedy Theatre, Yekaterinburg city. In the past few years, the band has earned a reputation as one of Russia’s major musical innovators. IzumRUd band managed to do what seemed to be impossible - to change the general public’s perception of Russian folk instruments. Its music is an aesthetic blend of classic, ethnic, jazz, blues and art rock styles. The band’s repertoire includes both original songs as well as covers of masterpieces of world music of different epochs, styles and genres. All compositions of the band are written by the drummer of the band Evgeny Khanchin in collaboration with rest of the band. The musicians performed solo programs in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Paris, Madrid, Tel Aviv, Budapest, San Sebastian, and Genova, and participated in various musical festivals around Europe and Asia. In 2006 IzumRUd band founded an International Festival of World Music “The Emerald City." The Festival is held annually as a creative laboratory for musicians from all over the world. The band has created many fascinating joint projects during the Festival, including "The Emerald Blues" - with a soul singer Denise Perrier (US), "A Freezing Cowboy" - with a 7-time "Grammy" awardee, saxophonist Paul Winter (US), "Bon Jour" – a program with «Mezcal Jazz Unit" (France) and others. Another highlight of the band’s career was their cooperation with the famous Russian rock band CHAIF that resulted in a joint album "The Emerald Hits", as well as concerts in the Red Square & Olympic Hall in Moscow and at the October Concert Hall in St. Petersburg. “…The IZUMRUD musicians create unique, original compositions with their unusual instruments. It was very interesting to work with them.” - Paul Winter "I never expected to hear this amazing sound of American jazz performed on Russian folk instruments. I could not believe my ears...! » - Denis Perrier
