Concert: Psoy Korolenko
Psoy Korolenko is a pseudonym of a Russian songwriter and performer Pavel Eduardovich Lion, a slavist with a Ph.D. in Russian literature.
His pseudonym comes from Vladimir Korolenko, Russian writer (1853–1921), whose works are subject of Pavel’s research.
Psoy performs his own and others’ songs, accompanying himself to keyboard instruments, mainly a Casio synthesizer in accordion timbre. Experimenting with quite various song traditions, he sings in about six or seven languages, most frequently in Russian, Yiddish, English and French.
His music is popular both with adults (especially linguists) and teenagers. He has collaborated with such musicians as Julian Kytasty, Michael Alpert, and Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird.

Concert: Hermes’ Brothers Band
The group gained wide popularity due to the extraordinary presentation of classical poetry.
In their concert shows, Hermes’ Brothers use a large number of ethnic instruments, and their music belongs to the avant-garde style urban-intelligent punk, which has incorporated the tools of world music of the last fifty years: reggae, jazz, lounge, dub, art rock, indie, trip- Hop.
Behind the musical component lies the text that is not inferior to it in force: the songs of the group are poems about love written by the greatest poets of several world languages: from Pushkin to Gumilyov, from Garcia Lorca to Brodsky.
The orchestra is headed by Hermes Zaigott – a performance man, musician and artist, whose works are presented in many foreign and Russian private collections.

Musical evening: Lena Kaufman, Gera Morales, Omar Torrez
Lena Kaufman, a singer and songwriter from Moscow, has been well-known to the Russian public since she first appeared in 2005 as a participant of the television talent show Star Factory 5.
Lena’s intelligent and romantic music was strikingly different from what was expected from most contestants. After finishing the show with praise from the famous Russian artist and producer Alla Pugacheva, Lena released the album “I’m Torn”, under the guidance of producer Igor Matvienko.
A son of a Cuban revolutionary and Che Guevara’s comrade Leopoldo Morales, Gera Morales is a frontman and creative leader of “Jah Divizion”, the most respected and one of the first roots reggae bands to be established in Russia.
Gera’s songs from the late 80’s still remain as legendary hits. He is a living symbol of freedom and ideological Rastafari culture in Russia. Being the founder of “Jah Divizion” movement, he is constantly contributing to development and support of roots reggae culture in post-soviet territory, where the band has a cult-like status and is still very popular.
Omar Torrez is a Mexican-American guitarist from Los Angeles, California. Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Torrez first received national attention as finalist in the National Jimi Hendrix Guitar Competition at Seattle’s historic Bumbershoot Festival.
Tom Waits chose Torrez as his guitarist for the 2008 Glitter and Doom Tour. He is featured on Tom Waits’ Glitter and Doom Live record on ANTI- label and on the Glitter and Doom Atlanta live recording broadcast on NPR.
Torrez has also toured extensively around the world and played with the likes of Kinky, the Buena Vista Social Club, Jethro Tull, Mumiy Troll, and Ximena Sariñana, and has played at the Festival Internacional Cervantino.

21:00-22:00 / Concert: Miranda Mirianashvili
22:00-23:30 / Concert: Boris Grebenshchikov
Boris Grebenshchikov is one of the most prominent members of the generation which is widely considered the “founding fathers” of Russian rock music.
Due as much to his personal contribution as to the undisputed and lasting success of his main effort, the band Aquarium (active since 1972 until today), he is a household name in Russia and much of the former Soviet Union. Grebenshchikov is often called the ‘Grandfather of Russian Rock’.
“Singing” is quite a poor word to explain the emotional revelation, which thrusts upon you, when Miranda Mirianashvili starts singing. That experience could not fit in such a poor word as a “Genre”. It’s about time, though not sensitive to it.
Music, theatre, movies, dancing, praying, confession and faith… That is the way Miranda sets your eyes and inner self to see the world as a much better place than it is. And the language is not important here, the value is much deeper.
Singing is her way to live, and when you listen to it, you exist alongside her.”

Concert: Megapolis group
Megapolis is a Moscow-based rock group started by Oleg Nesterov in 1986.
Their music combined elements of electronica with pop/rock, and they were one of the first groups to explore the possibilities of the music video as an art form to accompany musical works. Megapolis are also notable for their role in promoting the careers of young indie musicians in the new millennium. Megapolis’s debut, Utro (Morning), was self-released in May 1987.
The press and public were immediately attracted to their comfort in the then-uncharted sphere of electronic music, a rarity at the time.
