SHAMAN, Leps, Dolina - a powerful performance of the patriotic song "Rise Up"

As the country has changed, so have the songs about it. From religious and medieval motifs to songs about the revolution, Russian patriotic song has always reflected the spirit of the era. What does it look like in 2022? Read in our article.

SHAMAN, Leps, Dolina - a powerful performance of the patriotic song "Rise Up"

The growth of patriotic sentiments does not leave music aside, the only universal language that does not need to be translated, because it speaks soul to soul. Among the best modern songs written in recent times about our country is a composition performed by Masha Rasputina "Live, Country!", a hit by Sergei Trofimov "I Live in Russia."as well as a composition by Oleg Gazmanov "Forward, Russia!" et al.

But all of these songs differ from the one that will be discussed in this article in that they were written by pop representatives who have been on stage for a long time. They lack the "freshness" that the younger generation can provide. Therefore, with the arrival in the community of Russian singers Yaroslava Dronovawho now performs under the stage name SHAMAN, a new round in the development of pop patriotic songs is expected.
