Music in the faces.

Independence Day of the Republic of Abkhazia, in all parts of the country, villages, cities create a feast for the society, the greater Caucasus feast for the people, this is a great event for the nation. While in his journey in one of the mountain villages, I was able pobyvt at the celebration. Already in the early morning the musicians preparing for the performance , I came by chance,following the sound of music, new instruments, which I have never heard so in real time..they played the national Caucasian music. In these faces I saw the beauty and peace of mind, wisdom, all of this was combined into one, time seemed to have stopped, I do try to show it through photography.
