Siberian Ice Drummers Use Frozen Lake

A group of Siberian percussionists have become an internet hit with an exhibition of ice drumming on frozen Lake Baikal.

In minus 20C, they found by pure chance that the one metre thick ice has a distinctive and haunting rhythm all of its own, reported the Siberian Times.

'I felt like we were playing on the drums that Nature has left out for us, alone under the sun on the frozen waters of the world's most magnificent lake,' said Irkutsk architect Natalya Vlasevskaya, 31, a mother-of-one and organiser of Etnobit percussion group.

The 25 million year old lake, which freezes in winter, is the deepest and oldest in the world.

The group use the frozen waves of the lake to make an unusual, evocative melody - but they realised the musical potential of Baikal only after the wife of one of their drummer's fell over walking on the ice.
