“MOVIE”. IF THERE IS POWDER, GIVE FIRE

The Kino group was destined to become a rock legend, not only in the homeland of this musical style in England, but in the Soviet Union, moreover, from the 1980s. The team got into the cultural mainstream of that period. After the death of the frontman and vocalist of the group Viktor Tsoi, the collective ceased to exist, but this huge empty musical niche still remains empty.

But “Russian Field”, “Old Waltz”, “Chase”, “Textile Town” and other compositions became just as popular. “My song is me,” said Yan Abramovich, revealing each time a completely different facet of his talent.

Violin as a medicine
Having once picked up a violin, a four-year-old boy began to realize his father’s dream to make a famous musician out of his son. Then the instrument literally saved the life of the child. In childhood, he was constantly overcome by illness. And when the doctors discovered the boy’s tuberculosis, they issued a terrible sentence – any draft could kill little Jan. Then the father found a way to tie his son to the house and almost did not let him out on the street – he Continue reading
