Enter Etnobit Percussion Group! From the oldest and deepest lake, Lake Baikal, these four have created music - from ice!

It happened in a most unlikely situation: When his wife Tatiana fell [on the ice], the unique melodic “boooooom” that followed caught the ear of trained percussionist, Sergei Purtyan. He immediately asked, “How did you make that noise?”

Enjoy their performance here:

We also recommend Vaughan Williams' Sinfonia Antarctica and Vivaldi's Winter from the Four Seasons!
