Default Russian Music

Here are some gems from the gold age of Russian music.
Anyone else a fan of Russian music?

ВИА "Верасы" Я у бабушки живу
[VIA] of " [Verasy]" I in grandmother live

I think the singer's name is Jadwiga.

ВИА "Верасы" Любовь моя
[VIA] of " [Verasy]" Love is my
The melody of Jadwiga's backing vocals from 2:13 to 2:19 sounds like Ave Maria by Franz Schubert - imo.


ВИА "Здравствуй, песня" Не обещай
[VIA] of " How do you do, [pesnya]" Do not promise


ВИА "Пламя" Идёт солдат по городу
[VIA] of " [Plamya]" [Idet] of soldiers around the city


Some of these songs may not be too familiar so I have to include this unforgettable rendition of a more popular Russian song.
Moscow Night - A Russian folk Song - Interpreted by Stanley Power

I like Arsenal which I guess could be called a jazz fusion band that incorporated a range of influences in their music.

I didn't find the track I wanted, but here's the opener from the debut album. Some of this is quite RIO-y, but it's in no way representative of their music as a whole.

I don't know much but one or two modern bands:





Post-jazz, instrumental 8-piece group from St. Petersburg I believe.

That was wild. There were different parts in the piece that reminded me of a few bands from the 70s like one phrase in the piece was like Chicago and another phrase sounded like King Crimson and it's mixed together with a bunch of other stuff too. It was interesting. The one Russian band I really like is Trio Voronezh. I don't know how to categorized the type of music Trio Voronezh plays. Their stuff reminds me a little bit like the David Grisman Quintet. Grisman mixes Jazz, Bluegrass, and Folk and other music together in a type of music which he calls Dawg. There's a stronger folk sound in the Folk-Jazz fusion by playing on traditional folk instruments. TV seems to have the same approach (to music as DGQ) except where TV mixes folk with other types of music in a progressive way with a definite Russian flavor. Vladimir Volokhin on the domra (closely related to a balalaika), Valerie Petrukhin on the double-bass balalaika and Sergei Teleshev on the an (accordion).

One thing I've notice with Russian music is that the bass players can play exceptionally well.

Yeah, they're a 70s band and their range of influences is impressive they're not easy to pigeonhole.

After some more searching, I was able to find one of my favourite tunes. I have their music from a box-set containing all their work, but I believe this is from their second studio album.



I'm afraid I have to run to work, but I'll check out Trio Voronezh when I come back

I only know Vladimir VISSOTSKY. I don't understand the smallest word but that's the kind of job that touch my soul.

Having posted more than 15 posts I think I'm now mature enough to put some links here so here we go. As an example of a genre that was well represented in Soviet Russia & other Soviet states I can post some old skool electronica from the 80s. Zodiak from Latvia are a pretty legendary band. You could easily call them the Kraftwerk of Latvia. Here's the opening track from their 1980 debut album "Disco Alliance":


For some reason, some of the coolest Soviet electronica I've found is featured on LPs that are intended for sports / aerobics background music. "Pulse: Sport and Music" LP trilogy has some really cool electronica tracks by various artists (Arsenal is also featured there btw!). Perfectly fit for the dancefloor b-boys & fly girls. Here's a couple of examples:
