A SOULFUL SOUND: Music of the Germans from Russia - produced by Prairie Public Broadcasting, 2005. In the 18th and early 19th centuries, thousands of German- speaking peoples established major German settlements in Russia, first along the Volga River in the north, and secondly along the Black Sea in South Russia and nearby Bessarabia. Eventually, many migrated yet again, this time to North and South America. Throughout their travels, these Germans - now Germans from Russia - maintained their traditional religious music, their lullabies and folk songs, their vocal and instrumental music alike. A Soulful Sound, Music of the Germans from Russia blends expert commentary with performances of traditional music from regional talent. DVD.
