Le Vol Arreté
(Le Vol Arreté) [Le Chant du Monde]
A poet and singer who documented the lives of Russians from WW2 to the late 1970's. His voice is rough and vodka-edged, his words close to insanity, his cynical humour brilliant. With titles like "Why have you shaven off all your eyebrows?", "I am busy and I have a knife", "I was a third-rate locksmith", he has given us an irreplacable musical history of over 40 years of Russia's very turbulent history.
