Sure looks like an accordion, with a more advanced keyboard.

Great rendition of Vivaldi's 4 seasons compositions! Very well executed and not a missed note! Great playing by the two young men and the supporting violin section..The young lady played well, and it almost sounded like an Italian piece...But I don't know the name of it however, or if it was just a medley of other tunes.

Is there any difference between an American accordion and a Russian bayan?

I thought it was an Accordian and it is. Thanks for the music lesson.

The Russians have certainly made more of this instrument than we here in America have made with ours (the accordion). The tone quality of the bayan is much more appealing, the keys much easier to play and the selection of music so much more classical. I would love to hear a trio of these instruments play a Tchaikovsky arrangement.
