Our friend Aleks Yakubson is back this year with a few new translations of Russian songs. From the famous Russian rock singer Victor Tsoy to the well-known Russian rock band Chayf to lyrics by the tragic late Alexander Bashlachyev who died in ’88 at the age of 28, Aleks manages to surprise as usual. One of the poems is even translated into Spanish. Aleks included youtube links, so take a listen if you’d like. Let us know what you think—and share, share, share.
