The building of the Krasnodar Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a memorial to the civil architecture of the beginning of the 20th century. In previous times the house belonged to Ekaterinodar merchant Vasilii Kondratevich Rubezhanskii, the owner of the Bomond-Illuziya, one of the first cinemas in the Kuban capital.

Costume is elaborately embroidered "Maria Clara" and "barong tagalog". Castanets fashioned from Bamboo provide clacking sounds adding to the lilting music.
