Russian Pop Music

Posted by: rfifield | February 13, 2012 Comments Off |

Have you ever wondered what teenagers and college kids in Russia and Eastern Europe are listening to today? Our textbook refers to “рубиновая атака” and other Russian “рок групи”, but the rock movement was a product of the USSR in the 1980s. Today, Eastern European music is different, just as American music has changed since that time period. The Slavic Languages and Literature Department at UCLA sponsors a website about modern Russian music called “Far from Moscow” www.farfrommoscow.com. There’s all sorts of cool music there, in Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, English, and French. I really like Orange House….
