Vysotsky in English

Project by Vadim Astrakhan

Vladimir Vysotsky (1938-1980) was Russia’s premier singer / songwriter / poet of the 20th Century. Until recently, his popularity was limited to Russia and Russian speakers. I, Vadim Astrakhan, made it my life’s mission to integrate his work into world culture, by means of:

• translating his songs into English

• performing & recording them in a modern musical manner.

I have released four full-length albums, featuring an international cast of terrific musicians. If you are interested in powerful poetry and inspirational music, you will undoubtedly find this project interesting.
