Aida Vedischeva


Aida Vedischeva is a legend of soviet scene. For 25 years already she lives in Los Angeles. Now her scenic name is "Amazing Aida" but it hardly to dream her in american charts - soviet star of 60th.
In 1967 young girl from Irkutsk became a superstar. Her LP "Song about bears" was sold in 7,000,000 copies.
Her songs are very simple. She tells beautiful stories about human relations you could imagine at every soviet factory or kolkhoz. She's happy in spring and sad in autumn. It's real easy-listening as easy life at all.

Naydi menya | Find me
Dorozhnaya | Road song
Gololed | ice-crusted ground

Saw her last night in Las Vegas. Ridicules is the best way I can describe it. A has been Russian star. A never been American wanna be. And an old lady in a Statue of Liberty Outfit. A voice hardly befitting star status. I guess the Russian Star status has low expectations. What a waste of time she was. She will be living in her past from now on.
