Gooseberry / Fire of Petseri


Original version of ‘Tikker’ by the autor

Having been separated from violin for many months in military service I had the need to play or create something fresh. I took the instrument and started off from the first sprouting melody. This is how ‘Tikker’ was born; later I adapted it to the garmoshka.

In the arrangement of Zetod, the tune got a different name ‘Petseri palamine’.
