Once referred to as "the heart of Russian gothic folk" or "The Russian Dead Can Dance," Moon Far Away has released four studio albums, a live album, several singles and numerous collaborations since their inception in 1994 and played festivals across Russia and Europe.
The art of Moon Far Away is characterized by a deep knowledge and connection with the unique ancient heritage of their native region, the Russian North. Historically, the North was a free space where human creativity found its expression in rich poetry, music, visual culture and wooden architecture. Unlike in central Russia, there was no slavery in the North. Still today, the Russian North preserves the most interesting and unique heritage of ancient Russian culture dating back to its pre-Christian history.
Moon Far Away have dedicated themselves to the continuation of their home region's tradition, both musically and culturally. By combining traditional European culture and the soundscapes of the Russian North with influences from classic neo folk and modern technology, the music of Moon Far Away is a unique artistic expression where West meets East.
