Yu S Andreyeva with Arkhipelag in Donetsk on Victory Day (9 May 2015)

_______________________________

Today, young people flocked to a large festival concert in Shcherbakov Park to celebrate Day of the Miner and City Day (30 August). On the main stage, rockers and rappers, both local and from Russia, appeared, amongst them, Yu D Chicherina, Yu S Andreyeva with Arkhipelag, and V R Samoilov (founder of Agata Kristi), as well as musicians from St Petersburg, Samara, and other Russian parts. The event was truly massive… it filled the entire park; several thousand surrounded the stage. Despite this, the situation remained calm and friendly. An entertainment programme preceded the concert. The first number was a show called “Extreme Power”, put on by Donetsk homies and visitors from Taganrog. Anyone could show off their skills, to see who got the most interest from the crowd. Then, the bikers roared in. The crowd went nuts over the Donetsk branch of the famous Night Wolves MC. Their presentation wasn’t as large as planned, because there were so many people in the park that there wasn’t enough space to put it on in its entirety. However, the main draw of the evening was V R Samoilov, the founder and frontman of the famous band Agata Kristi. Every time that he tried to leave the stage ended in a long photo-op with the crowd. Vadim Rudolfovich is one of the most popular musicians in the DNR; he just couldn’t deny his fans. Local pols and figures gave their greetings and speeches; all those taking part in the festivities expressed their desire for peace and gave encouragement to the Donetsk homies. D V Pushilin, Vice Chairman of the DNR Peoples Soviet, addressed the audience, “We have a dual holiday… Day of the Miner and City Day. Needless to say, for us, our miners and their work are fundamental to our republic… greetings, Donetsk, our mining land, on your holiday!” Currently, the concert is still going on. Meanwhile, the older generation is waiting for tomorrow. One of their faves is appearing in Donetsk, the Generalissimo of Crooners, Peoples Artist of the Russian Federation and of the DNR, I D Kobzon {click here for Somewhere Far Away, the theme to the famous TV show, 17 Moments of Spring).

On Tuesday, rapper Anton Panchenko from Tula won a prize at the Hodigitria International Orthodox Youth Festival in Vitebsk. He got first prize in the author/artist category, according to a spokesman from the Missionary Department of the Diocese of Tula and Yefremov, who’d sponsored Panchenko’s entry at the competition, who said, “A rapper’s victory refuted accusations that the Church is conservative and passé. Rap’s extremely useful; it shows the belief and creativity of our Orthodox youth”. Several years ago, the Voronezh Festival of Orthodox Performers recognised Panchenko.

Editor’s Note:

I think this is a GAS and the BOMB. Great stuff! I love seeing the Church keep up with the real world. What upsets me is seeing modernity-hating prune-faced former Episkies trying to pervert the Church into a hateful little sect that has no positive content, only hatred of the real world and its contents. You see this abundantly in people like JP, his pal Gerasim Eliel, the HOOMies, and every single last Episkie convert that I’ve ever met (when I meet such, I get an overpowering urge to slip some molten Exlax into their Ovaltine (that’s American Horlicks for you Brits out there) to clean out their systems). As for me, I stand with HH… he just named Konstantin Kinchyov, the frontman of Alisa, to his cultural commission. I say that HH has the right idea… as for the prunish ex-Episkies… I’ve never carried out my urge… but there’s always a first time!
