Russians can sing! – Listen to these villagers sing “When we were at war” (video)


Sibling Zoya and Valera, from the village of Brestchina, Belarus, are major Russian YouTube stars, with tens of millions of views for their renditions of Russian folk songs.

Their secret – they are completely authentic and sing with all their heart.

Listen to this one. It’s a Russian favourite, a Cossack song about war.

It was written by the Russian poet David Samoylov and is presented as an interior monologue of a soldier.

Smoking a pipe, he tells the story, hiding the heartache, preoccupied with the betrayal of his beloved. He seeks death in battle, waiting for it as if he were getting rid of his suffering.
