White Cranes - May 9 - Pogudin



Oleg Pogudin, singing the song, White Cranes. May 9 was traditionally known as Victory Day (commemorating the end of the second world war) in the former Soviet republics.

What I like about this song is that it creates a respectful pause within which one can mourn the losses of war; an atmosphere of reverence.

A link to the lyrics.
