Linda Davis, Andrew Thomas and Kansas Begaye to Perform Solo at the Ysyakh Festival in Siberia (Summer, 2015)
Linda Davis, the leader of the Chinle Valley Singers, will participate as a solo performer at the Ysyakh Festival. This traditional Yakuts festival is the largest in Siberia. Other Navajo performers participating in the festival are contemporary singer Kansas Begaye and fluteplayer Andrew Thomas. It's the Yakut national festival celebrating (and wishing for) fertility, usually celebrated on the Summer Solstice (21 June). In some years the date can wander around. There's an all-nationality parade in the suburb of Us Khatyn (Ус Хатын), which sees tens of thousands of people from all the various peoples of the Russian Federation. The main event, as a rule, of the two-day festival, is the painted blessing ceremony of the harvest by the White Shaman. No less important for the Yakuts are the sacred rites of the second day's sunrise. The festivities are conducted with competitions in traditional Yakut sports, like Yakut archery, stick fighting, "Khapsagai" (Хапсагай) wrestling, and also national arts: singing, Vargan mouth harp, reciting of traditional oral epics, and others. There are also competitions to make the best national dishes, folk costumes, traditional folk concerts, as well as local popular music.
Their participation is under the auspices of the United States consulate in Vladivostok.
