Hear it First: Chechen Pop/Folk



I was googling Chechnya earlier and Макка Сагаипова (Makka Sagaipova) came up as a notable Chechen. Anyway, this is what pop music sounds like in Chechnya. You can download a bunch of songs here, but I have no idea whether or not it's legal.

  1. wow,
    I am glad other people spend time googling Russian things like Chechnya or Ivanovo.

    This didn't sound anything like I imagined it would. I was thinking it would be more similar to Western Russian or even Western European music.

  2. There are probably more Turkish and Islamic elements of influence than you might find in Western Russian pop. If you'd like we could explore 360 degrees of Russian music and work from here all the way out to Tuvan throat singing and back.

  3. Sounds like an Awesome Plan!!
    Hopefully Adam will read this. He's the big Tuvan throat singer fan.
    I like some of throat singing, but it's still a hard taste for me.

    So AWM dare me to do a Russian music exploring part of the 360 degrees of Russian Music?

  4. It's ambitious, but it could be rewarding.

    Here are the federal districts of Russia.

    I was going to say we could compile a tour mix, selecting one song from each, but the North Caucasian Federal District alone contains seven different "states."

  5. good stuff,

    Tartarstan will be fun.
    I had a friend in Tatarstan who used to give me music, but then I tried seducing her, and now we don't communicate anymore (she said no for the record)
    but CAXA, Tuva, altai, and siberia will be awesome.

    hmm, ew might have to narrow this ahaha

  6. Maybe. The magnitude wouldn't be unreasonable if the time frame was suited to it, though. One a week, for instance. Or a month even.

  7. Okay AWM,

    Then let's tone it down a bit.

    I challenge you to a Russian music post off.
    Sometime this week or next week post something (anything) related to Russian Music.

    Are you game ? :D
