The Veps folk group "Noid" (Petrozavodsk) created its first video clip and posted it in Internet. "In the video clip the song "Voik" is heard - a traditional Veps wedding weeping", - told to the Informational center FINUGOR the founder of the group "Noid" and arranger of its' songs Vladimir Soloviov.
"We wanted making a video clip a long time ago. But there were no time or money. To make a video clip in haste, at odd moments, we didn't want, we'd like to do it of high quality. - he explained. - And so finally this year we have an opportunity and all necessary resources. Creation of the video clip is financed by the Mitistry of the national politics of Karelia in the frames of the project concerning audio and video recording - at the same time we record the new album. The clip was decided to make on the song "Voik" - it is Veps weddind weeping that was recorded in 2010. At the basis of the clip's plot is Veps sacral imagination about the fact that during marriage a girl changes her status - a bride symbolically dies in girlish life and reappears in the new life - married. It should be said that marriage in that time was really the one of the most important events in girls' life.a new bride should leave home, parents, relatives, girlfriends. Time of placid youth age, that is too short for a girl because at that time people got married too early, comes to an end and adulthood begins far off of the native village in the husband's house with new parents. That is why a bride bewails this way her careless single live, "white liberty, red beauty".
The video clip was made for "Noid" by two directors: Vladimir Slavov and Andrey Kurochkin - the latest lives in Londom more than 15 years, and his vacation in the homeland he devotes to shooting scenes and cutting the clip. One of the main characters - a bride - was plaid by the TV reporter and actress of the National theatre of Karelia Galina Baburova. The song was sang by the "Noid" vocalist Alina Kartynen.
The folk group "Noid" sings both traditional Veps songs and songs with modern arrangement. Its style the group defines as world-music or ethno-fusion.
