Thanks for this thread. Since I cannot find any inspiration in western modern music (Polish as well) I started searching East Slavic music and I cannot stop listening
I know Pelageya. Recently I found her beautiful song "Ptashechka"
2) All songs of В.Высоцкий, for example "Баллада борьбы" well performed by Melnitsa
Vysockij’s ballads are epic and rather known in Poland. But I have never heard any alternative version of this ballad. This performance is very nice
3) And the last for a while, but one of the most Slavic . Wonderful music and text!
The music and text are really wonderful, but you posted here the softest version of Nebo Slavian. Nobody can perform it better that Kinchev. I like Alisa’s unofficial video composed – among others – of old movies and military threads
