OTYKEN is a project of Andrey Medonos, producer and director of the Ethnographic Museum in Krasnoyarsk. Оtyken is a Siberian indigenous music group. The marvelous combination of traditional musical instruments and modern arrangement will definitely entertain you! Our mystical throat singing, special elemental vocals, enchanting sounds of vargan (jaw harp), khomys, morinhur, leather drums will take you to the wild thickets of the Siberian taiga.

We sing our songs in Khakass, Chulyms, Dolgans and Russian (sometimes). In our songs you can hear the great history of the Siberian indigenous national crafts. Our musicians (Chulyms peoples) will tell you about their usual daily life: collecting herbs and pine cones, moving through wild taiga for hunting, apiary work, preparing gear for night fishing.

According to one version, the Chulyms are the ancestors of the Japanese Ainu and the indigenous peoples of North America. According to another version, the Chulyms are an ancient Turkic tribe. The Chulyms live along the Chulym River in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. In addition to the Chulyms, the OTYKEN musical group includes (previously included) such peoples as the Kets, Selkups, Tuvans, Khakass and Dolgans.

The Otyken has triumphed in different international festivals and has an enormous amount of fans in all over the world. The magical power of our music will heal your soul and your body as well, and it can even send you into a trance!

Chulyms are the lords of honey and great beekeeping masters. Their method of extracting honey has not changed from ancient times to the present days. Here you can buy wild honey from Siberia. As our wild honey is not contacted with any kinds of metal and plastic, it keeps its original energy. We use strong sealed packaging (glass, wood) and carefully pack the parcels. You will receive the products safe and sound. Watch the video with subtitles of girls extracting honey.  The profit is directed to the development of the OTYKEN group and other folk projects.
