6 May 2018. A Franco-Russian Collaboration… Vincent Niclo with the MVD Ensemble

A Soviet-built I-16 fighter of the Spanish Republican Air Force… Russia has had closer ties to continental Western Europe than the USA had or has… after all, Russians ARE Europeans!

******

Ameno… “Disclose”… the lyrics are in Latin to a rock beat…

_________________________

No doubt, you’ve heard of the so-called “condemnation” of Russia by Western Europeans. Nothing is further from the truth… outside of government circles and the English-speaking minority, the majority of people don’t see Russia as an enemy. Indeed, in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Greece, the majority of people are favourably disposed to Russians as compared to Americans. Here, French pop singer Vincent Niclo joins the MVD Ensemble… he’s made several recordings with this group. Most ordinary Europeans have no fear of or hatred of Russians… and Russians reciprocate their feelings (the ties are especially close in the case of Greeks and Italians).

Don’t believe everything that the media spews out or take credence in everything flogged on the internet…

The lyrics in English are:

Take me to the inside, absorb, take me
Disclose, disclose, hiding, hiding oneself, take me
Disclose, unperceived signs, disclose
Tell me, tell me, warlike, spirit martyr, disclose

Emulate unperceived signs, disclose
Emulate unperceived signs

Disclose, disclose the silence, disclose take me, disclose take me
Disclose soldier, take me away, disclose take me, disclose take me, take me soldier
Disclose
Disclose
Disclose, emulate unperceived signs, disclose
Tell me, tell me, warlike, spirit martyr, disclose

Emulate unperceived signs, disclose
Emulate unperceived signs

Disclose, disclose the silence, disclose take me, disclose take me
Disclose soldier, take me away, disclose take me, disclose take me, take me soldier
Take me, take me…

Disclose
Disclose take
Disclose take me
Disclose take me

Disclose soldier, take me away, disclose take me, disclose take me
Disclose, disclose, disclose, disclose take me
Disclose
Disclose take me
Disclose
Disclose soldier
Disclose
Disclose take me
Disclose
Disclose take me…

10 April 2018. I D Kobzon With His Granddaughters on His 80th Birthday… The USA has this Grand Old Man on the Sanctions List… EVIL!

******

___________________________

The first two vids are from a concert honouring the 80th birthday of the famous singer I D Kobzon. The third one is from some years ago, with one of his granddaughters singing Guardian Angel (My Grandpa). The neoliberal pigs in the USA have Iosif Davydovich on their sanctions list. He’s a Donetsk homie and he stands tall for his hometown’s brave resistance to the American aggressors and their Galician Uniate dog allies. Iosif Davydovich is proud of his Jewish heritage, as well he should be. He’s also proud of his hometown, which shows that he’s a decent human being and a stand-up guy. It does tell you much about the Americans and their “sanctions”, doesn’t it?

This is one of the most life-affirming things that I’ve seen in a long time.

23 November 2017. A Light Goes Out in Our Musical Firmament… D A Khvorostovsky Passes at 55 From Brain Cancer

******

________________________

Last year, Dmitri Aleksandrovich gave a moving performance of Журавли (Zhuravli: The White Cranes)… I find this the most appropriate piece to mark his passing. There’s also the gutsy original rendition by the late great M N Bernes (People’s Artist of the RSFSR).  Mark Naumovich’s version is much more stark and raw… listen to him… it’s à propos for such a day (he also died relatively young of cancer, at age 57). This was the last recording that Bernes made… many thought it his musing on his approaching death. That may be the same with the above performance, as it occurred one year after the diagnosis of a brain tumour.

D A Khvorostovsky was a People’s Artist of Russia. I D Kobzon (People’s Artist of the USSR) reported that his funeral will be 27 November at the Chaikovsky Zal of the Moscow Conservatoire. Dmitri Aleksandrovich wasn’t a believer… his ashes will lie in Novodevichy and in his Siberian home. However, we stand in respect before the mystery of death and wish the best for his family and friends, and express sincere and honest condolences at his passing (as did President Putin). Secular people simply aren’t religious believers (for a multitude of reasons, many grounded in actuality); we should respect them and their beliefs, without reserve. I bow before all of Dmitri Aleksandrovich’s loved ones and express my solidarity with their pain and my community with their grief.

ВЕЧНАЯ ЕМУ ПАМЯТЬ!

A light went out in our musical firmament… the whole world mourns…

30 September 2017. Some of My Favourite Things… I D Kobzon Sings Hava Nagila

******

______________________________

I D Kobzon, one of Russia’s most-loved singers, just turned 80! They had a big bash for him in Moscow… this is from his birthday concert. Iosif Davydovich is still going strong! He’s a Gosduma Deputy; he still performs regularly. Therefore, all the American hot air about Russian anti-Semitism is pure bullshit and lies. He’s on the American sanctions list because he’s a Donetsk homeboy and he supports the Donbass Orthodox socialist patriots in their fight against the American-led Uniate nationalist aggressors. I should also add that Iosif Davydovich holds the Order of Glory and Honour, the second-highest award of the Patriarchate of Moscow and all the Russias

Orthodox people… reflect on this… note that rightwingers like Victor Potapov and most of the Amerikantsy converts support the Uniate/schismo aggressors to please their neoliberal American masters. They support the murder of our Orthodox children in the Donbass by the Americans’ Uniate attack dogs (but they’re PRO-LIFE, dontcha know)… yet, they holler about communists being “murderers”. I call them hypocrites, liars, and frauds. I’m not alone in that…

Remember that Comrade Zyuganov isn’t only a believer… he’s a close personal friend of Patriarch Kirill… they don’t tell you that on the convert-run website Russian Faith, do they? It tells you much about their veracity and reliability…
