Russian band makes music from ice


The Russian band.

A Russian percussion group is gaining popularity due to its unusual style of music.

The ‘Ethnobit’ band uses broken-up pieces of ice floe, stacked against or on top of each other on the frozen surface of a lake.

The artists only use their hands and slabs of ice as musical instruments. Since the concert is improvised, nobody knows for sure what type of music the band will perform.
