Karyn Romeis posted a Russian langauge YouTube video to her blog today. Although I do not yet speak any Russian, the artist communicates a powerful story here in an amazing way which transcends language.
What is the backstory? Is this the German invasion of Russia during World War II? What ARE the words of the singers? I am enthralled and want to learn more. I need to reach out to Russian language speakers.
One of my USAFA classmates speaks Russian and lives here in DC. If I’m able to meet up with him this week I’m going to ask about this. Actually I think I’ll email him too. 🙂
If you have any further info on the backstory of this video, please let me know.
This is a phenomenal example of passionate, artistic expression. At times it reminds me of a multimedia Guernica.
