The Sakha (which is what the residents prefer to call themselves in contrast to "Yakut" which was the Russian nomenclature) are a Turkic people ethnically related to the Kyrgyz, Tuvans, and Uyghurs and are believed to have migrated to Siberia during the 13th century. Despite systematic persecution during the Stalin era, as well as many forced migrations, the Sakha bravely attempted to preserve their local traditions, which experienced an enthusiastic revival following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1992.
The current program was recorded in 1997 by seven members of the National Dance Theater of the Republic of Sakha, and truth be told, comes as a blast from the Soviet era past, rather than reflecting the more authentic Sakhan sounds of artists such as Spiradon Shishigin, ethno-group Ayarkhaan and German and Klaudia Khatylaev.
