    Can anyone recommend any Russian music?

    I have been listening to Russian music a lot to try and get used to hearing the language, but the only Russian artists famous enough internationally that I have heard of them are tatu and Zemfira (well, and PPK, but PPK don't seem to use Russian lyrics). This is all very well, but I'm getting a bit tired of hearing only two bands.

    Can anyone suggest any good Russian music? I am willing to try almost any genre. It would help if the lyrics were enunciated clearly.

    What are peoples favourite Russian bands?

    Спасибо!

    Re: Can anyone recommend any Russian music?

    Unfortunately, I don't know what you think about folk music, but I really like it so I can suggest listening to Мельница and its soloist Хелависа. It seems to me that she pronounces all the words clearly enough. Her lyrics can be rather difficult for a foreigner so I can advise listening to the songs that she has translated from English, so you'll be able to compare the translation to the original.
    For example, you can begin with Терновник, Дуб и Ясень (the translation of Kipling's "Oak, Ash and Thorn").
    I've uploaded it for you here: http://www.2shared.com/file/12365732/f4a9c094/____.html
    If you need lyrics, I'll write them here.
    Sorry in case you don't like it

    Here's a nice one you can find on the net. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bu7pbBBjpDk
    Guitar chords too.

    Сокол yдалой,
    Кpасно солнышко
    Возьми меня за pyченьки,
    Dm
    Веди гyлять с собою за околицей,
    Am
    По пpоселочкy.
    Am
    Возьми меня за pyченьки,
    Веди меня по тpавyшке,
    Веди по шатким мостикам,
    Dm
    Веди меня до моpюшка до синего,
    Am
    До неба дальнего -

    Чеpез огонь, чеpез водy,
    Am
    Чеpез матyшкy-сыpy-землю,
    Dm
    Чеpез надеждy, чеpез веpy,

    Чеpез глyпyю любовь мою.

    Отведи меня к небy синемy,
    Отведи меня к моpю дальнемy,

    Да к жене своей воpотись домой
    Dm Am
    Бескpyчинным да беспечальным.

    Hе ищи тепеpь - не найдешь меня,
    Только в камышах

    Dm
    И потечет вода по твоим щекам -
    Hапоpы встpечай,

    Re: Can anyone recommend any Russian music?

    Hmm... I have a penpal who occasionally connects me with interesting Russian music.

    Here are my favorites:

    "Bouncy Music"
    1. Варвара - Отпусти Меня
    2. Пропаганда - Пистолеты
    3. Улицы - Зелёные Глаза

    I also really like a song in the movie Стиляги, but it's of an entirely different flavor.

    Hope this is some help!

    Thanks so much for all your suggestions, I'm enjoying them all (especially the кошка song, it's really fun). I don't understand much of any of them but figure it's good to hear them anyway.
