Aleksey Arkhipovsky breaks people’s perceptions of balalaika as a traditional folk instrument. He is compared to Paganini and Jimi Hendrix. Using electronic sound processing methods, the brilliant virtuoso makes the balalaika have different tones and qualities. You can hear jazz, classic, flamenco, rock, Russian folk songs in the pieces he performs… Wherever he gives concerts, the house is full. In 2011, he got into the Russian Book of Records as the World’s Best Balalaika Player.
