Since antiquity in villages of Onega Territory were built wooden temples, peasant's houses and high-rise palaces and mass production of any possible building and casewood material was organized.

The Arkhangelsk ensemble of modern national music "Beloye More" is famous for its alive sound, choreography and vocal compositions. Musicians themselves wrote the overwhelming majority of arrangements. Their compositions and programs cannot be referred to any well-known genre of national music and not only because the musicians created in collectives of various styles and genres.
