Vadim Kolpakov | photos | videos | press | VIA ROMEN | in Russian | contact/book

Vadim Kolpakov is one of the most prominent and renowned Russian Roma (Gypsy) guitarists in the world. Hailing from Saratov, Russia, Vadim graduated from the Roma performing arts school Gilori and studied guitar with his uncle Alexander Kolpakov, the legendary Russian-Gypsy guitarist and composer. At the age of 15, Vadim began work at the Romen Gypsy Theatre in Moscow, where he worked for 8 years and was the leading guitarist for 7 years.

Vadim has performed extensively in Russia and abroad. He has given concerts in Carnegie Hall (New York City), as well as in the Kremlin (Moscow) for the Russian president Putin, the Kazakhstan president Nazarbaev, and for both the Finnish and Portuguese presidents and parliaments. Vadim has also performed in Europe with the Russian Gypsy group Gelem as lead guitarist, and performed in the famous Roma festival Khamoro in the Czech capital, Prague. He has performed in innumerable other musical projects on Russian, Canadian and American television and radio and was invited to record his own compositions for the soundtrack of the Finnish motion picture Mire Bala Kale Hin. He has recorded several CDs with Alexander Kolpakov and the group Gelem. In 1999, Vadim participated in the major concert tour 'Gypsy Caravan' as part of the famous Romani group The Kolpakov Trio. Selected as leading representatives of the Russian Romani musical tradition, The Kolpakov Trio gave several unforgettable concerts in America and Canada together with premier Gypsy musical groups from 5 other countries: Taraf de Haiduks (Romania), Antonio El Pipa Ensemble (Spain), Musafir (India), Kaly jag (Hungary) and Yuri Yunakov Ensemble (Bulgaria/USA).

In 2003, the Russian American ensemble TALISMAN invited Kolpakov Trio to reconstruct and record music of the Russian Roma of the 1820s. The resulting recording, A Tribute to Stesha, was released by NAXOS in 2005, and the program was featured at the Boston Early Music Festival 2005.

In these performances, Vadim repeatedly brought the audience to their feet with his expert guitar skills, his passionate dancing and also his singing. Since then, he has recorded several other collaborative projects with the group Talisman to be released in 2009, including Dostoevskys Jews and Gypsies (music and dance vignettes drawn from The Brothers Karamazov) and Mikhail Vysotskiy and the Gypsies (an examination of the musical sharing of vocabulary between the early Russian and Roma guitar and vocal traditions). With TALISMAN, he has taken part in performances and lecture/demonstrations at Harvard University, Boston University, Oberlin College, University of Iowa and Grinnell College, and interviews on NPR, teaching audiences about the Roma nationality and cultural tradition through music and dance. Vadim has also performed and recorded Romani activist songs with Eugene Hutz (the lead singer of Gogol Bordello), which he hopes will promote understanding of the Roma nationality and human rights.

In 2004, Vadim assembled his own group in the US Via Romen, which has performed at venues such as the New York Gypsy Festival (Roxy Club, NYC), The Festival of International Cultural Exchange (Portland, Maine), and at clubs such as the Avalon and the Middle East (Boston), Club Pearl (Miami), Signet Club at Harvard University, Royalty Theatre (Clearwater, FL), Regent Theatre (Boston), Romani Yag Gypsy Festival (Montreal, Canada), World Theatre and Music Festival (Colorado Springs, CO) among others. Music by Via Romen was featured at the Sydney Theatre (Australia) for the production of The Cherry Orchard by A. Chekhov.

In August 2007, Mr. Kolpakov was exclusively invited to perform at the English residency of the famous popular singer Madonna and her husband, the movie director Guy Ritchie. He performed as a part of the celebrated Kolpakov Trio with Eugene Hutz on Madonnas birthday.

In 2008 and 2009, Vadim Kolpakov as a member of the Kolpakov Trio, went on the world tour Sticky & Sweet with Madonna. They performed in many European and South American countries, as well as in North America and Mexico, including venues such as Wembley stadium in London, Madison Square Garden in NYC, Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro and Palace Square in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Vadim also performs with Zingaresca, which he co-founded with Dr. Oleg Timofeyev, the world expert on the Russian seven-string guitar tradition (University of Iowa). Zingaresca is dedicated to the Russian and Russian-Gypsy guitar repertoire, finding an intricate mixture of classical and traditional.

In addition, Vadim collaborates with various artists and bands in the US, such as Barynya (a New York-based Russian Folk music and dance ensemble), Gypsy Klezmorim (a Jewish-Romani crossover band from Columbus, OH), and others.

"The Kolpakov Trio"

The Kolpakov Trio The striking style of The Kolpakov Trio reflects the training of its members at Moscow's Romen Gypsy Theatre. Aleksander Kolpakov, the group's director, was born in 1943 in the district of Orenburg in Eastern Russia. He was raised with music among the Servo group of Rroma and began playing the seven-string guitar as a boy. In the 1960s he moved to Moscow and has since worked with a number of groups, including the Romen Theatre. He is a composer as well as a singer and instrumentalist.

His nephew Vadim Kolpakov mastered the seven-string guitar, the vocal style and dance tradition of Russian Rroma Gypsy music at an early age and is from the Saratov region of Russia. In 1992 he moved to Moscow to train with his uncle. He has toured internationally and recorded with the Kolpakov Trio, and in addition sings, dances and plays the guitar in his own group "Via Romen", which he founded in the United States.

Tamara Cherepovskaia is a well-known Rroma singer, and has toured in France, Italy, Georgia, Latvia, and America. She is highly in demand in the contemporary Moscow gypsy scene as a solo singer and dancer, and has collaborated in several recordings.

Vadim Kolpakov BIOGRAPHY

Vadim Kolpakov and "VIA ROMEN" Vadim Kolpakov is one of the most prominent and renowned Russian Gypsy 7-string guitarists in the world. He was a lead musician of the Moscow Roma (Gypsy) Theatre Romen, where he performed as a guitarist, composer, vocalist, dancer and dramatic actor. To this day, his original guitar compositions are performed in many prominent plays at the theatre as part of the vibrant oral tradition of the Russian Gypsy culture. Hailing from Saratov, Russia, Vadim graduated from the Roma performing arts school Gilori and studied guitar with his uncle Alexander Kolpakov, the virtuoso Russian 7-string guitarist who served as the musical director of the Romen Gypsy Theatre for over a quarter of a century. At the age of 15, Vadim began work at the Romen Gypsy Theatre, where he worked for 8 years and was the leading guitarist for 7 years.

Vadim Kolpakov and "VIA ROMEN" Vadim has performed extensively in Russia and abroad. He has given concerts in Carnegie Hall (New York City), as well as in the Kremlin (Moscow) for the Russian president Putin, the Kazakhstan president Nazarbaev, and for both the Finnish and Portuguese presidents and parliaments. Vadim has also performed in Europe with the Russian Gypsy group Gelem as lead guitarist, and performed in the famous Roma festival Khamoro in the Czech capital, Prague. He has performed in innumerable other musical projects on Russian, Canadian and American television and radio and was invited to record his own compositions for the soundtrack of the Finnish motion picture Mire Bala Kale Hin. He has recorded several CDs with Alexander Kolpakov and the group Gelem. In 1999, Vadim participated in the major concert tour 'Gypsy Caravan' as part of the famous Gypsy group The Kolpakov Trio.

Vadim Kolpakov and "VIA ROMEN" Selected as leading representatives of the Russian Gypsy musical tradition, The Kolpakov Trio gave several unforgettable concerts in America and Canada together with premier Gypsy musical groups from 5 other countries: Taraf de Haiduks (Romania), Antonio El Pipa Ensemble (Spain), Musafir (India), Kaly jag (Hungary) and Yuri Yunakov Ensemble (Bulgaria/USA). The New York Times singled out Vadim's virtuoso guitar playing while playing on that tour, which was organized by World Music Institute and included over 15 major American and Canadian cities, including an appearance at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts (Washington D.C.) and Sanders Theatre at Harvard University.

Vadim Kolpakov and "VIA ROMEN" In 2003, the Russian American ensemble TALISMAN invited him to reconstruct and record music of the Russian Gypsies of the 1820s. The resulting recording, A Tribute to Stesha, was released by NAXOS in 2005, and the program was featured at the Boston Early Music Festival 2005. In that performance, Vadim repeatedly brought the audience to their feet with his expert guitar skills, his passionate dancing and also his singing.

With TALISMAN, he has taken part in performances and lecture/demonstrations at Harvard University, Boston University, Oberlin College, University of Iowa and Grinnell College, and interviews on NPR, teaching audiences about the Roma nationality and cultural tradition through music and dance. Vadim has also performed and recorded Romany activist songs with the lead singer of Gogol Bordello, which he hopes will promote understanding of the Roma nationality and human rights.

Vadim Kolpakov and "VIA ROMEN" In 2004, Vadim assembled his own group VIA Romen, which has already performed at venues such as the New York Gypsy Festival (Roxy Club, NYC), The Festival of International Cultural Exchange (Portland, Maine), and at clubs such as the Avalon and the Middle East (Boston), Club Pearl (Miami), and at the Signet Club at Harvard University, among others.

Vadims musical repertoire includes Russian- and Gypsy-style compositions by Alexander Kolpakov, music by Sergey Orekhov, 19th-century Russian 7-string guitar repertoire and his own compositions and improvisations on Gypsy, Russian, classical, rap and world music. He works exclusively in the oral tradition and teaches traditional Roma guitar, dance and vocal repertoire to students in his studio in Cambridge, MA.
