Product Description

Michail Krug is one of the most famous and beloved perfomers of Russian shanson. Mikhail Krug (Vorobiov) was born in Tver on April, 7 1962. During his student years, in 1987, he participated in an institute song contest, where he had a great success. Since then he began to sing shanson professionally and he has published many albums. But on the 1st of July, 2002 he was founed killed at his home in Tver. It turned to be real shock for all Russian shanson-lovers.

The history of Russian shanson comes from the 19th centuries, when first penal-servitude songs appeared. The prisons were full of people being in opposition upon the authority, dreaming on free Russian society, democratic laws and such human rights as a right to speak openly and frankly, not being afraid of government to punish them.

During the soviet time, due to even harder authoritarism than it had been, the genre of shanson gained relevance again. At that time prisoners sang not just about freedom and Motherland, but love, Russian nature, their mothers, fathers, wives and children. Moreover, they began bring the song texts from Russian classical literature, for example, from Sergey Esenin's lyrics, which is still popular within shanson singers.
