Description: Songs in Russian, French, English, Spanish, Gypsy, and Ladino by V. Vysotsky, B. Okudzhava, A. Galich, and other iconic names of the Soviet alternative culture, forbidden Russian romance, banned poetry, songs ofinsurrection, songs by European authors and more.
Tatiana Plus specializes in songs written and recorded outside the Soviet establishment, using musical performance as a form of civil disobedience. In the Soviet Union, many poets performed their songs for small groups of people using a Russian (or Gypsy) guitar. However, they were rarely permitted to record their music, given the political nature of many of their songs.
The trio Tatiana Plus is dedicated to continuing the tradition of performing socially relevant songs originating from different cultures, performed in different languages, but talking about the same universal values: love, freedom, equality, hope, understanding, courage, friendship, kindness, and artistic expression.
The trio includes virtuoso vocals (French, Russian, Gypsy, English, Spanish) and instrumental music (two rare acoustic guitars [Russian and Gypsy], an accordion, wind instruments, piano). They illustrate a wide range of styles and manners of European and Eastern European song, and stylistically, they mingle Gypsy traditions with modern Russian art singing, Klezmer style, European chanson, and added elements of jazz, rock, and flamenco.
