A star called the sun

I’m supposed to be working through the online training modules in preparation for my first session as a Russian GCSE examiner … but I needed a brief (twitter) pause and found this video, which I had to share..

Of course, you’ll recognise these charming babushkis as the dear old biddies responsible for Russia’s astonishingly hideous Eurovision entry this year. The song they’re singing here is one of my ever favourite Russian songs, Kino’s Звезда по имени Солнце, sung in the Buranovskiye BabushkisUdmurtski language. Love it.
