It seems that all Russian-Americans of “a certain age” know and love Theodore Bikel’s versions of Russian folk music… so, I did my best to round up a complete collection…

22 July 2015. Happy Birthday, Oleg Mikhailovich! O M Gazmanov is 64!

00 oleg gazmanov 01. 220715

******

His latest…

******

His most famous… I Grew Up in the USSR… performed in Kharkov in happier days on Victory Day… the city is now under the cruel and vicious occupation of the Anglo Americans and their Galician Uniate nationalist running dogs… spare a prayer for them…

______________________________

O M Gazmanov is one of the most beloved performers in Russia… trust me, he can still full up Luzhniki Stadium for a concert. He’s a patriot; he’s aways opposed the American support of fascists in the Near Abroad and their support of pro-Western quislings in Russia. He’s always been popular, even in the Nasty 90s… so, Anglo Americans, why don’t you just go home to where you belong (America is going to rack and ruin as the Anglo Establishment wastes the country’s wealth in warmongering in foreign parts and in rampant political corruption, the worst in the world).

Oleg Mikhailovich embodies what is best in our people… blunt honesty, open hospitality, generosity to strangers, hard work, and implacable resistance to foes.

Многая лета, Олег Михаиловтч!

This isn’t “Folk Music” per se… it’s an “urban” recasting of folk themes, from the late tsarist and Soviet periods. Nevertheless, all Russian people love this kind of thing. Yes, the state supports such ensembles, for that is one of the legitimate tasks of the state, to support and foster healthy cultural developments… that’s why godly Russia is ahead of godless Republican America… the Republicans slash everything in their disordered mad lust for more wealth. That’s why all “conservatism” is evil and without redemption. Compare this to Kim Kardashian and Duck Dynasty… there’s no comparison, is there? This is the state in action… it’s why the Church BLESSES the state… it CONDEMNS anarchy… let’s not be coy, Libertarianism is nothing but “moneyed anarchy”… think on that.
