Theodor Bastard is one of Russia's most unique and innovative bands, mastering the electronic Karelian neofolk genre while blending elements of darkwave and trip-hop.

Focused on messages of mythology and shamanism, the hallmarks of the band are the unique and bewitching lead vocals of multi-talent Yana Veva as well as the impeccable sound producing skills of founder Fedor Svolotch. From album to album, Theodor Bastard masterfully combine exotic and traditional instruments with a modern sensibility. Utilizing archaic tools such as the Nordic nyckelharpa and jouhikko, primeval flutes created from tree roots and shamanic percussion, the band puts forth an electric and captivating atmosphere.
