Current state of the traditional culture of the dukhobors (based on expeditions to the area Tselinskiy of Rostov region)
In the present article on the basis of some finding of field researches the household and ceremonial context of music of oral tradition of dukhobors is considered. It is established that conditions for its existence as well as a considerable part of singing repertoire remain thanks to conservatism of many aspects of life of this ethnoconfessional group. At the same time performance of religious rituals, including a worship ceremony, doesn’t carry regular and communal character now. The reduction of rituals occurs at the expense of reduction in time and combination of actions.
