Mari village Shorunzha selected as next Finno-Ugric Capital of Culture

SU_pealinna-2019_valim_21On April 8, the winner of the Finno-Ugric Capital of Culture 2019 competition was announced in Obinitsa (Setomaa, Estonia) during the 2nd Forum of Finno-Ugric Villages. The next Finno-Ugric Capital of Culture will be Shorunzha village from Mari El Republic of the Russian Federation. The other two finalists of the competition were Arkhangelskoye village from Komi-Permyak Okrug of Perm Krai (Russian Federation) and the town of Zirc from Hungary.

Shorunzha village, located in the Morkinsky District of the Republic of Mari El, is home to 1040 residents, 97% of whom are ethnic Mari. With the Finno-Ugric Capital of Culture year, the municipality of Shorunzha aims to raise awareness of the Mari people and culture across the Finno-Ugric world, to upgrade and popularize cultural heritage sites on its territory and to develop cultural tourism. The official programme of the Finno-Ugric Capital of Culture 2019 year will include at least 12 thematic events attracting over 10 000 visitors. The flagship event of the year will be a festival of Finno-Ugric wedding customs “Süan Pairem”, to be held on June 12. The application of Shorunzha was endorsed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Mari El, Mari Association “Mari Mer Kangash” and several regional and local institutions.

According Erik Yuzykayn, member of the Shorunzha delegation, the title of Finno-Ugric capital of culture is very important for the Mari people, “To be a centre of Finno-Ugric cultural life is a great honour and even greater responsibility which is why we must respond to this challenge”. The programme bureau of Finno-Ugric Capital of Culture expects to work closely with Shorunzha to implement the objectives of the year, by building on the experience of previous capitals of culture and by contributing to the long-term sustainability of the programme. According to Oliver Loode, Head of the Programme Bureau of Finno-Ugric Capitals of Culture, “We expect 2019 to become a celebration of Mari culture for the entire Finno-Ugric world and beyond, but also to present the cultural diversity of Uralic peoples to audiences in Mari El Republic in new and innovative ways”.

Finno-Ugric Capitals of Culture is a joint initiative of the Youth Association of Finno-Ugric Peoples (MAFUN) and URALIC Centre for Indigenous Peoples (MTÜ Põlisrahvaste Arengu Keskus). The programme aims to raise awareness of Uralic peoples and languages, strengthen Finno-Ugric identity and stimulate local development in the Finno-Ugric world. To date, the title of Finno-Ugric Capital of Culture has been awarded to five villages or cities: Udmurtian village of Bygy (2014), Seto village of Obinitsa (2015), Hungarian village Iszkaszentgyörgy and City of Veszprém (2016) and Karelian village of Vuokkiniemi (2017). Finno-Ugric Capitals of Culture has been acknowledged as a good practice of promoting cultural rights of indigenous peoples, including by Ms. Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The competition of Finno-Ugric Capital of Culture 2019 was supported by Estonia’s Kindred Peoples’ Programme and is part of the Estonia 100 programme.

Russian Authorities Threaten to Take Away Teacher’s Children Over Hunger Strike

Yekaterina_SokolovaRussian municipal authorities have reportedly threatened to take away a local art school teacher’s children after she protested against low pay.

Yoshkar-Ola art school teacher Yekaterina Sokolova went on a hunger strike in mid-March after her salary was cut by more than half, from 27,000 rubles to 15,000 rubles ($263), the local 7×7 news website reported. Teachers in Russia earned an average 34,921 rubles per month nationwide last year, while teachers in the republic of Marii-El, where the city of Yoshkar-Ola is located, earned 22,387 rubles.

In an interview with 7×7 published Saturday, Sokolova alleged that the school’s new leadership is misusing President Vladimir Putin’s 2012 executive orders promising to increase the incomes of health care, education and research professionals by 2018.

Yoshkar-Ola city hall officials threatened to seize Sokolova’s two underage children, the RFE/RL news website affiliate Idel.Realii cited the head of a local teachers union as saying Monday.

The outlet reported that the local human rights ombudsman was unable to solve the disagreement, while the deputy mayor and the school’s director had “simultaneously taken sick leave.”

Скучали по Dj PEl’MAN? Тогда можете радоваться - новый проект “Виртырем” наследует его дурашливую стилистику и развязный тон, ну и “съедобное” название. Если со времен “Антипати” пельмень официально стал одним из брендов Удмуртии (Пельмень-фест) и приобрел попсовый вкус, то виртырем - кровяная колбаса - звучит хардкорно и свежо. Так и с музыкой.

“Виртырем” реагирует и на изменения в пространстве русского рэпа. Надоевшая всем выхолощенная и изнеженная хипстерская культура, растворившаяся в мейнстриме, миллениалы с их культом видеоблогов и инстаграма - уютный мир приелся, и рэп отчасти вернулся к подъездной романтике, обратился к пацанскому миру (Хаски, Грибы). Стеб остался, но с примесью неподдельного пафоса. Но все это популярно во многом благодаря тому же ютубу. Те же блогеры теснят рэперов с их территории (на “Афише Дейли” недавно вышел об этом материал). К одному из проектов, упомянутых там, - песне “Алтын” Татарки - “Виртырем” проводит прямую аллюзию (“мон зарни мотор сяська”). Другой популярный проект - “Хлеб” - своими примитивистскими текстами высмеивает жизнь и быт молодежи. “Виртырем” также пострен на иронии и хулиганстве, и говорит языком пабликов “Вконтакте” (Кылзы, ёпта) - разговорным, примитивистским и “грязным” (этакий удмурстко-русский “суржик”).

Виртырем, набитая в кишки забитого животного кровяная каша, - это не милые перепечи или пельмени. Милотой сейчас никого не удивишь. Виртырем - это еще и очевидный фаллический символ. Герои песни - “шонер пияшъес” - не испытывают проблем с девушками (в данном контексте даже уместнее слово “телочки”). И этот гиперболизированный мачизм, наглое, сексисткое высказывание тем не менее вызывает больше симпатии, чем слащавые песни о “зэмос воргоронах”. В песнях - ничем не подкрепленный, а потому абсурдный патриотизм - явная насмешка, ирония над собой. В “Colte” была статья о все той же Татарке: “это не культурные манифесты, а клипы-приколы…”. В удмуртской же культуре благодаря деятельности “Юмшана” (R.I:P., а еще лучше - кам бэк, пожалуйста) “прикол” давно преобразован в действенный метод популяризации удмурсткого языка. И вывод: “…Клип «Алтын» сделал больше для привлечения внимания в России к татарской культуре, чем многолетняя программа по развитию языка с методичками, книгами и национальными праздниками, после которых никто его толком и не выучил. Прикол сработал в том направлении, в котором и не предполагалось” - нас, удмуртов, не удивляет, правда?
Но вот беда. По-прежнему, какие бы эксперименты не проводились, какие бы мощные проекты не выстреливали (Silent Woo Goore, IB4CP), в остатке мы имеем одну картину: удмуртская музыка и сейчас не отличается разнообразием и предлагает стандартный набор исполнителей. И на фоне общей стагнации удмуртской культуры “Виртырем”, обращаясь к удмуртским экспериментам десятилетней давности и современному русскому рэпу, обладает свежим - другим - вкусом. Вкусом крови во рту. Хочется прокомментировать словами из самой песни - “Ческыт, бля”.

The stairs on which I step (VIDEO)

Toshkalme_toshkaltyshem_30-10-2017_01This is the song from the resent music album of Anna Mishina and Kristi Mühling. The duo Anna and Kristi combines ancient Eastern Mari songs with experimental Estonian kannel music.

Anna Mishina – voice, Kristi Mühling – Estonian chromatic kannel, Ivan Kamenshchikov – Mari iyagomyzh (a type of fiddle).

This lyrical song of Suksunsky Mari was recorded by Oleg Geramisov in the village of Tebenyaki (Suliy in Mari) in 1971, аs performed by Anna Demidova (born in 1908).

The number of steps I scaled was seven. When I counted, they proved to be eight. I’d like to be born and grow up again, I’d like to be seventeen years old again. My dear relatives, come to visit me, I have nothing special to offer you, but I have some bread. My friend, let us climb a hill, take your mandolin, we will cry, join hands and go apart.

The stairs on which I step

Anna_Mishina&Kristi_MuhlingAs part of the Kindred Peoples’ Day

on Monday, October 30th
At the Tartu Literary House

“The stairs on which I step”
Concert presenting CD of Eastern Mari folk songs

Anna Mishina (vocals)
Kristi Mühling (chromatic psaltery)
Pavel Kutergin (bagpipes)

The duo Anna and Kristi combines ancient Eastern Mari songs with experimental Estonian kannel music. The majority of Finno-Ugric people play some sort of psaltery; the Mari psaltery is known as the küsle. The Estonian kannel is a chromatic instrument that is similar to it; it spans a bridge between the past and the present and with the help of Eastern Mari songs gives rise to a beautiful soundscape.
