Natalia Vlasevskaya, head of the Ethnobit ethnic percussion studio, held a traditional master class called "Drum Circle". The creative classes are popular with students.

"The peculiarity of the interactive is that all participants jointly create music regardless of their instrument proficiency. Experienced drummers and novice students intuitively learn the culture of different peoples of the world," said Natalia Vlasevskaya.

Djembe, marakas, guiro, triangle and other music can be heard in the White Hall of INRTU.

Creative evening was attended by Kristina Krasnova, a second year student of the School of Economics, Management and Law and an actress of the People's Theatre "Predmestie". According to the student, she learnt to play the guitar at school and dreamed to improvise on percussion instruments.

"The Ethnobit's New Year's Eve cabaret remembered me with bright, rhythmic melodies and new acquaintances. I played the African djembe drum with an extraordinarily deep sound", shared her impressions Kristina Krasnova.
