That's a Russian music video from late 80s early 90s,
full of scenes of that time Russia's everyday life.
Here is another Russian music video. The band's name is "VIAGRA". Some may say it's Ukrainian band, some - it's a Georgian
singer Meladze, but in general it's a Russian pop band "VIAGRA". And this is a short remake of this music video:
This is a Soviet hymn, recorded by all USSR pop stars right after the USSR collapsed, in 1991. They thought this music and words would be now a part a history, because just a little bit later a new hymn appeared, with another music and words, so all people of Russia thought they are now living in a democratic state, without
traces of Soviet Union. But then a few years later, after the free goverment turned to be not so free, censorship in Mass Media appeared and.... Soviet Hymn was restored. Now, in modern Russia the hymn is being sung on the music of the Soviet hymn. Welcome back to a new USSR - Russian Federation.
Balalaika and Bayan two Russian musical instruments. And here we have two music videos about Balalaika. First one is from Russian top singer from 80s, Alla Pugacheva. The
title of the song is simple: "Balalaika" The second is an example how to make an alternative music using Russian national instruments balalaika and bayan:
Ukrainian singer Ruslana, the winner of Eurovision song contest, with the song "Wild Dances". You can watch a backstage performance of "Wild
Dances" in this video: And now she is shocking her fans with this unusual dress. Honestly it is more an underwear than a dress:
This is a Soviet Era Music video about an American guy who liked Beatles and Rolling Stones, came to USSR and spent time singing with Soviet brothers, but then got a letter from USA ordering him to return to USA sign to Army and depart to Vietnam War. So he did and then got killed. Some sort of a tradegy but look how does
they sing! By the way during the Soviet Era the state had a grip on all the music bands. You couldn't start a band without getting an approval from a special comittee, and if you were planning to play some rock'n'roll you never got the approval. So this was a band with a license from a state.
After watching this video it is more easy to understand what was the Soviet Union. Different nations were united under one flag and one goal - achieving of the world reign of communism. All those nations studied Russian in school as the main language, in fact all the lesssons were in Russian only. All the govermental system was the same everywhere, in European regions where people look and live like in Western countries and in distant Eastern and Southern regions where people are got used to live like in Afghanistan or Turkey.
But this was all a one country with one people and one language and one capital - Moscow city. This video shows how Western culture can penetrate some not Western by geolocation regions of Russia. Actually this is Kazakhstan already, but former it was a part of USSR, and in modern Russian Federation there are some other regions looking like this. And by the way this video is 100% serious and was used for TV broadcasting across that region. I hope you enjoyed the video
