Evgeny Lebedev

Two jazz projects where the pianist Evgeny Lebedev, from Moscow, participates.
LRK Trio: lively jazz, folk and fusion. The trio is Lebedev, Anton Revnyuk and Ignat Kravtsov.
Alina Rostotskaya & Jazzmobile: jazz and folk. Many adaptations of Russian folk songs (e.g. Songs of Kursk by Georgy Sviridov).

First sampler

My first post is a sampler of new Russian music from different genres. You might start noticing a certain dominance of Saint Petersburg as a indie/experimental music hub.
Nina Karlsson: Indie pop and jazz from Saint Petersburg.
Otava Yo: Folk band with a funny mood, from Saint Petersburg.
TESTO: Folk, ethnic music with an electronic touch, from Saint Petersburg.
Messer Chups: Experimental, rockabilly, surf music with a horror movie touch, from Saint Petersburg.

Nina Karlsson – Dance

Otava Yo – Russian couplets while fighting

TESTO – Cosmonauts

Messer Chups – Chupacabra Twist
