Quick Overview

Tum Balalaika is attributed to a number of Eastern European countries, but is best known as a Russian Jewish folk/love/"riddle" song. Loosely translated, "tum" means "noise," and the Balalaika is a Russian stringed instrument with a characteristic triangular, hollow, wooden body and three strings, closely related to the domra and mandolin. Carl Strommen's wonderful setting will help any group sound their best.
