ex-Soviet and modern Russian music
Sunday, July 03, 2005
Born in small miner town in France Edita Pieha had to become famous soviet singer. Always she differed from soviet folk singering women: she was elegant and stylish, her polish accent showed foreign birth so it might be hard to win sympathy of soviet public.
Now in Russia she is not really popular but her grandson Stas Pieha became popular after tv-show Fabric of Stars and new wave of interest to Edita Stanislavovna became that time. And certainly Stas sings ordinary pop songs despite of his grandma's traditions.
Her songs were free, funny, romantic and smart - like a joke at heavy USSR-machine.
