Recently I’ve fallen in love with a set of Russian and Ukrainian music, mostly pop, dance, R&B and hip-hop. This post aims to contain a small (but updated on-the-fly) index of artists, duos and bands with the purpose of representativeness and to provide the reader a good starting point to know what I’m talking about.
Note: last.fm, YouTube and Spotify are good resources to find out more information about them. VK also seems to be a pretty popular Russian social network, and discogs contains a good catalogue / index (Discogs is to artists and tracks what Goodreads is to authors and books).
Note: the order of the following list does not necessarily imply preference, although Nyusha is definitely my preferred one.
- Нюша / Nyusha: last.fm
- Тамерлан И Алена / Tamerlan & Alena : last.fm
- Полина Гагарина / Polina Gagarina: last.fm
- Artik & Asti: last.fm
- Elvira T: last.fm
- Потап И Настя Каменских / Potap and Nastya Kamenskih last.fm
- Алсу / Alsou: last.fm
- Akinator managed to find out, after ~60 questions, that I was thinking on Nyusha.
- Nyusha participates in the Russian version of The Voice Kids.
- Polina Gagarina participates in the Russian version of The Voice.
