Artel ROSA - a new musical project of sound producers Grigory and Alexander Lapenkov and independent director Rovshan Vakhidov.

A decade later, having worked with a large galaxy of Russian pop stars, the Uralic nuggets decided to part with the career of the session musicians and reformatted the "Bobot Cook" group, which was engaged in the last years in collaboration with Vyacheslav Petkun, leader of the "Dances Minus" group.
The team includes Alexander and Grigory Lapenkovy - music authors, bassist Yevgeny Borodin and graduates of the folk singing department of the Moscow Institute of Culture Olga Kalyuzhnaya and Ksenia Galicarova.

Stereotypes of the Future in the nomination "Best Experimental Ethnic Music"
All-Russian prize in the field of experimental ethnic music and dance and December 15, 2018 in Moscow.
The mission of the project is to create a platform for searching and forming a new image the future of Russia, based on the synthesis of cultural codes of the past and present.
Our musical project revives the interest of the audience to study the unique culture of Russia.
We see our main task as the formation of modern folklore.
The new folklore is based on the synthesis of the ethnic heritage of the past, modern cultural codes and the latest musical technologies.
The first single "Lyapota" was the result of this synthesis. It is based on the folk song "Crying eyes". In the final version, the musical techniques inherent in such styles as reggae, latino and chanson were used.
The possibilities of the musical project "Artel Rosa" consist in the creation of a unique new musical style - Urban Folk.
It is based on folk music, songs and contemporary author material.
We believe that our musical experiments and experiments can be of interest to the European audience, since they allow us to create a new look at Russian folk song-making.
Performances at international music festivals are able to convey to the world public our creativity as bright and vividly as possible.
We plan to bring this experience to the global musical environment, to joint projects and cultural exchange
In our development we are faced with the need for independent production and promotion.
We independently write scenarios of our music videos and shoot them ourselves.
Independently determine the repertoire and invite authors and songwriters to cooperate.
This contributes to the creation of an independent musical language and a new style of Urban folk.
