For those who don’t think that Russian music ends with the last accord of balalaika we would like to present our new audio-podcast devoted to the Russian music. We invite you to a promising journey beyond the headlines and prejudices. And it’s up to you to decide whether you like it or even... balalike it.
Russians also have a first-aid kit of tracks, that immediately improve your mood and give this miraculous feeling of coming Christmas & New Year.
First of all here is V lesu rodilas' jolochka (The forest raised a Christmass tree) as well-known and beloved among Russians as Jingle Bells in the English-speaking nations. Written by Raisa Kudasheva and Leo Beckmann in the beginning of 1900s, it is probably the main Russian New Year song. The rest nine tracks are also in the winter tune.
