VIDEO: Ice drumming on Russia's Lake Baikal

The Russian percussion group Etnobit discovered, almost by accident, that the world's deepest lake was also the perfect place to reverberate beats. While visiting Lake Baikal in southern Siberia, the wife of one of the drummers fell on the ice, and it made a remarkable melody. After recording some improvisation, and bringing it back to the group, it was decided to record a performance in this most unusual concert location. Their ice session, as they refer to it, became the source for this playful video produced by The Siberian Times.
