Now, here’s a mixture! The Buranovskiye Babushki and Bayan Miks! Now, that’s good family fun! The Babushki participated in the qualifying rounds of the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest (ranked third) and were second in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku with the song Party for Everybody. S I Voitenko and Dmitri Khramkov (Bayan Miks) need no introduction. This came from a special Rossiya-1 broadcast on Orthodox Christmas in 2013… sadly, early this year, Yelizaveta Zarbatova, one of the Babas, died in the 87th year of her life (she’s the shortest one of the lot in the vid). Light a candle for her at liturgy… her death anniversary is 13 January, so, if you want to have Pannikhida served, that’s the proper date.
After posting about the konvertsy, I wanted to post on something wholesome, healthy, and life-affirming… this is the ticket!
