Elena Zabavskaya is a mandolin virtuoso in Russia. Due to the language barrier, not much can be found for Elena on the internet. Nevertheless, the YouTube videos with her playing are very nice, so I am happy to present her in theMandolinTuner blog, to show that the mandolin is really a world music instrument.
I will keep researching for more information on Elena Zabavskaya, and will the update this page accordingly. In the mean time, enjoy the videos!
