The Moguchaya Kuchka (Mighty Little Heap) was a name coined by a Russian newspaper for the nationalist group of Russian composers headed by Balakirev. Other members were Cui, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Mussorgsky. Because of their number and their influence, they were also called The Five, The Mighty Handful, The Fist, and "babocumuri" in mnemonic acronym.
