Beth Hart is on fire. Right now, the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter is riding a creative tidal wave, firing out acclaimed albums, hooking up with the biggest names in music and rocking the house each night with that celebrated burnt-honey voice. In 2016, the headline news is Los Angeles’ singer Beth’s latest album, Fire On The Floor: a release that even this fiercely self-critical artist describes as “pretty frickin’ good”. Despite all the emotionally bare moments, for Beth, this record represents a catharsis. “I think Better Than Home is one of the best records I’ve ever done,” she says, “but it was a brutal experience. Fire On The Floor has more energy and I think, overall, it’s just got more balls. And I think I really needed that, just to balance out that heavier mood on Better Than Home.”
With their thrilling rapids, drastic jumps in height and deep canyons, the mountain streams in the Northern Caucasus have always attracted extreme sport lovers and those looking for active leisure. One such attraction is the Belaya River, which passes through a series of different landscapes and is known for its temperamental flow — one that constantly changes as it travels from its source to the mouth of the river. This river also hosts a number of international rafting competitions every year, but you don’t have to be a professional in order to test these rapids. Even a novice can try their hand at water tourism here, where interesting canyoning routes abound.
