Special | 56m 30s Video has closed captioning.

In the 18th and early 19th centuries, thousands of German-speaking peoples established major German settlements in Russia. Eventually, many migrated yet again, this time to North and South America. Throughout their travels, these Germans, now Germans from Russia, maintained their traditional religious music, their lullabies and folk songs, their vocal and instrumental music alike.
