This friendly project – done without a budget, organized work, planning and  management – was the most important musical project in the modern history of Belarus. We go back to the time when the project was conceived and  together with its participants make their 20-year way. Everyone who was involved in the “Narodny Albom” has grown older. Fate has scattered them to  different parties and even different countries. Friendship did not preserve. Many have doubts: is it worth to revive what was true in the late 90s? Whether the participants will get together? And if they do, will the new stage adaptation repeat success of the previous one?
