Andrey Vinogradov (Russia) - Maslenskaya (Traditional Russian Pancake week tune)

"Maslenitsa (Russian: Мáсленица), Cheesefare Week, or Pancake week is a Russian religious and folk holiday. It is celebrated during the last week before Great Lent—that is, the seventh week before Pascha (Easter)—though some of its traditions date back to the pagan times. Maslenitsa corresponds to the Western Christian Carnival, except that the Orthodox Lent begins on a Monday instead of a Wednesday. In 2007, Maslenitsa was celebrated from February 12 to February 18."
