Hello all. My name is Robert. I live and work in Perm, Russia. Over my time here, I've tried to learn not only Russian, but also something about popular Russian culture.
One band that was popular (and still is) with Russians around my age is Kino. They were a rock band from around the end of the Soviet Union. The lead singer, Viktor Tsoy's lyrics resonated with the youth of that time.
Here is a link to their "Black Album" -
My favorite song on this album is Kukushka (Кукушка).
