Daniel Kahn – Bulat Blues
On his new album BULAT BLUES Daniel Kahn devotes himself to the "Georges Brassens of the Soviet Union", Bulat Okudzhava, in new, own adaptations in English and a touch of Russian. Daniel Kahn is accompanied by the virtuoso Moscow musician Vanya Zhuk on the Russian 7-string guitar.
The Georgian-Armenian Muscovite Bulat Shalvovich Okudzhava (1924-1997), the spiritual father of all Russian singer-songwriters, is almost unanimously revered in Russia and the post-Soviet diaspora. His songs, which come from his experiences as a soldier, pacifist, poet and novelist of the Second World War, are deeply human. When Okudzhava privately performed them in the 1950s, he almost single-handedly invented the figure of the modern Russian guitar bard.
