Collaboration concert with the symbol of Russian rock-n-roll Fedor Chistyakov from Russia with local Austin band The Flying Balalaika Brothers.
Fedor Chistyakov has been known as the songwriter, front singer, and accordionist for the band Nol’ (Zero), a cult model of Russian rock music. Chistyakov developed and added to the tradition of The Doors, The Pogues, Deep Purple, Chuck Berry, James Johnson and other rock classics. He is at the same time quite a sophisticated and insightful composer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist musician, whose creative interest embrace rethinking classics and producing experimental instrumental music of many genres and styles. If there is literally the embodiment of the Russian Rock'n'Roll, then it is Fedor Chistyakov.
Fedor is big in the Russian community and recently played shows in New York, Seattle, and San Francisco.
“Fedor Chistyakov is one of the only musicians today that can convince audiences to accept the accordion as a rock instrument” --Rolling Stone, Russia
If there is a band in the US that compliments Fedor Chistyakov, the symbol of Russian rock-n-roll - it is The Flying Balalaika Brothers. And, likewise, if there is an ideal match for the Balalaika Brothers and their electric-folk-rock team, it is the legendary Fedor Chistyakov. Zhenya has already been playing, composing, and recording with Fedor for some time now - both of them are superb poet-singers and amazing rock instrumentalists.
Their collaborative repertoire features new renderings of both Fedor’s and Balalaika’s classic hits. The songs are at once old and new; vibrantly arranged with folk influences and deeply informed by American and Russian rock traditions. The lyrics are often bilingual and always filled with funky guitar riffs, button accordion solos, and balalaika grooves.
