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.

10 September 2016. Some of My Favourite Things… P G Lisitian Sings “Ya Vas Lyublyu” from “Pikovaya Dama”

*******

An aria from La Traviata… Joe Green in Russian!

******

Here’s a patriotic song in a more popular vein… Moya rodina (My Motherland)

___________________________________________

P G Lisitian (Peoples Artist of the USSR) came from a humble working-class family… in the money-grubbing West, he would’ve got nowhere. In the USSR, he found an outlet for his talent. That’s something that the righties never talk about… how the Sovs sincerely sought out talent of all sorts (artistic, scientific, and athletic) amongst all classes and how they gave people a chance to develop their skills. Lisitian was a leading soloist at the Bolshoi (officially, the State Academic Bolshoi Theatre of Russia (GABT Rossii)) from 1940 to 1966; he taught at conservatoire for many years afterward (he died in 2004, in his 93rd year). Ya vas lyublyu from Tchaikovsky’s Pikovaya Dama (The Queen of Spades) has to the be the most famous aria in Russian opera… need I mention that Pavel Gerasimovich was a mentor of D A Khvorostovsky? Many believe his interpretation to be the best yet… I agree.

The Liberated Serfs Sing a Song… her family were amongst those freed from servitude by the communists… I wonder why the righties don’t tell you about THAT…

_________________________________

Han Hong is a very popular singer in China… her father was Han, her mother was Tibetan. She’s all class… the first song is The Road to Heaven, about the Qinzang Railway from Xining in Qinhai to Lhasa in Tibet… a railway cut through some of the most difficult terrain on earth. Free Market? No way… socialism still rules in China… Socialism is Good, as the old song has it. Shila Amzah, from Malaysia, has tons of fans in the PRC, so, she sings many songs in the local languages. Tseten Dolma is of a previous generation, being born in 1937; she came from an ordinary peasant family… the Communist toppling of the feudal government allowed her the opportunity to study and be a performer. Don’t listen to embittered refugees… many of them were from the old privileged classes. The coming of the commies was GOOD NEWS to many ordinary folk… ponder that.

The Sinosphere, the Ummahsphere, and the Orthosphere are friends… they don’t need the bratty Anglosphere…
