The concert is organised with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation

World Music in the White Well is a concert without which it is already impossible to imagine the Platonov Festival. Every year several thousand people gather in one of the most picturesque places in the Voronezh region - a quarry with chalk hills, sandy beaches and transparent lakes – to listen to current folk and get imbued with the musical culture of different parts of the world.

This year, three participants will perform at the concert - Ethno Jazz Orchestra from Serbia, Marina Satti from Greece and Zventa Sventana from Russia.

Ethno Jazz Orchestra (Serbia)

EJO (Ethno Jazz Orchestra) is a Serbian band that will perform in Russia for the first time. The musicians successfully combine Balkan music with elements of fusion jazz and exciting African tunes.

The members of the band come from different parts of Serbia, and their music is based on the intertwining of cultures. They are not afraid to experiment and try themselves in different genres, boldly going beyond the traditional jazz sound.

The members of the band attracted attention in 2019, when they became finalists of the "Milan Mladenović" award with the song "Deset dana" / "Ten days". The same song was nominated at the MAC Festival for Best World Music Song at the end of 2019.

The performance at the XI Platonov Festival will be the first for EJO in Russia. At the concert " World Music in the White Well" Ethno Jazz Orchestra will present its album "Bird", the release of which is scheduled for the end of June.

Marina Satti (Greece)

Bright and charismatic Marina Satti - singer and songwriter of Greek-Sudanese origin from Athens will take part in the concert "World Music in the White Well".

Her music is intertwined with Greek, Balkan and Arabic motives, which sound unusually fresh in modern processing. Marina is not afraid to experiment, so elements of electronic music and even hip-hop can be found in her work.

Marina Satti's single "Mantissa" ("The Fortune Teller"), composed, arranged and produced by her, became a hit, gaining over 40 million views on YouTube in its first month of release and topping the charts in Greece and Bulgaria.

Marina Satti gained fame in Greece as a musical actress, taking part in projects such as West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, Shrek: The Musical and others. She also voiced the character of Moana and recorded songs for the Disney cartoon of the same name.

"Marina Satti, combining musical virtuosity and simple melodies, strength and softness, femininity and decisiveness in her work, causes excitement throughout Europe." Le Temps (France)

Zventa Sventana (Russia)

Zventa Sventana is the headliner of the "World Music in the White Well" concert. It is a Russian musical project by Tina Kuznetsova and Yuri Usachev. The team breaks down stereotypes about folk music and weaves folklore with dance electronics, indie pop and even neo-classics.

All Zventa Sventana tracks are folk songs unknown to the wide audience. They are taken from the archives of Russian folklorists and their own expeditions to villages and embodied in a new sound.

The band was the headliner of the Manor Jazz Festival, Wild Mint Folk Festival. At the end of 2019, the MTV Russia TV channel named Zventa Sventana "Musician of the Year". Zventa Sventana's music video "My Husband Is Not Home", filmed in collaboration with Ivan Dorn, won the Berlin Music Video Awards 2020.

"Zventa Sventana's perfomances pierce and fuse together not just musical genres, but time layers, tradition and modernity, past and future."

"As if plasma welding has held together the seemingly impossible - the ancient Russian syllable and modern jazz drive."
