For almost a decade RUSSKAJA have spread healthy Turbo Polka all over the world! Their self-created "collective feeling of consciousness expansion" has become legendary. This band is a perfect example of starting in small venues, then moving to the biggest stages after 10 years with more than 600 performances worldwide and still delivering pure energy & finest cultural musical diversity. They spread the joy of life and say that there’s no need to speak Russian to understand the philosophy of RUSSKAJA. Well, that’s right, as the multicultural cast around the charismatic Russian front man Georgij Makazaria reflects this immerse power perfectly!
Their brand new and upcoming album "PEACE, LOVE & RUSSIAN ROLL" is set to be released on July 24th (UK/US/CAN dates tba) – and the name says it all, with a twinkle in the eye. One can definitely say that Russkaja have created their very own style over the past years: a blend of Balkan music and Metal matched perfectly between Polka, Estam Rock, Rock and Roll as well as mariachi and US country music influences. A contradiction? No, not at all! The band simply calls their music Russian Turbo Polka and this high speed sensation delivers the perfect soundtrack to nearly everything! The song "Energia" from the critically acclaimed previous release was viewed more than 2 million times and became a YouTube hit.
The band has gained a great reputation over the years not only in their adopted country Austria as well as in Germany, Switzerland and Mexico. 2011 was the band’s first international breakthrough as the band played four times in a row at Wacken Open Air, the world's largest metal festival as well as participated in numerous festivals throughout Europe! Deichbrand, Zwarte Cross, Taubertal, Appelpop and many more of Europe's biggest festivals are on Russkaja's tour schedule.
The musical message of Russkaja is completely clear then: dance, dance, dance to "PEACE, LOVE & RUSSIAN ROLL"! They have conquered the clubs and open air festivals all over Europe by surprise and distributed their high-speed Brass to the world. This is not only a Balkan fashion, these guys are not simply great power pioneers from Moscow, this simply is the pure sound of anarchy!
