Viktor Tsoi

Season 2, Episode 8,  Jul 30, 2021, 04:03 PM

In this episode, host Charlie Connelly delves into the life of Soviet-Russian singer-songwriter Viktor Tsoi. In the 1991 attempted Russian coup, his song Khochu Peremen blasted out from speakers at the barricades. 20 years later in Belarus, the song became the soundtrack to the uprising against the autocratic President Alexander Lukashenko. But, the singer-songwriter never saw his music as being overtly political, he was focused on a different type of change - the one that occurs within an individual. Enjoyed this episode?
