Originally produced for Manifesta 10 - The European Biennal of Contemporary Art, 2014, in collaboration with the Foundation of Cossack culture Narkevicius stages a concert of war songs based on the traditional repertoire of the Cossack cultures.

The Cossacks are predominantly East Slavic peoples, originally from the regions of Ukraine and southern Russia. They played a vital role in the historical and cultural development of both countries. The selected repertoire of poignant and sorrowful songs from the borders of the empire reflect upon the concepts of freedom and of the right to expression and self-determination, engaging with a distinction between a very open, international cultural tradition and its simplified current interpretation.

This is a vinyl LP recording of this concert.

This record was played within the exhibition Deimantas Narkevičius: Doubled Youth, 2017.
