The Rough Guide To The Music Of Russia

Various

RGNET1107CD

The Rough Guide To The Music Of Russia introduces some of the country's most beloved artists to an international audience that, until now, has largely overlooked Russia's folk and popular music. With the fall of the Iron Curtain, the music scene in Russia changed and the communist censors disappeared allowing the bards, folk songs, singers and rock bands to flourish. This album features music from Russia's first lady of song, Alla Pugacheva, legendary singer-poet Vladimir Vysotsky, Cossack folk from Zhanna Bichevskaya, Gypsy virtuosos Loyko, and the uplifting balalaikas of the Terem Quartet.
