Animal Jazz

Nashe Radio plays popular music that isn’t quite “pop.” What’s big in Russian-language rock, rap, punk, R&B, and alternative? Nashe Radio’s all-Russian and eclectic playlist can tell you. Once a month, SRAS provides a snapshot of what’s at the top of their charts, with YouTube videos and links to our Russian music site.

Here’s how the lineup stood on April 27, 2018:

1. “Звук и тишина” (“Sound and Silence”)—Animal Джаz

2. “Колыбельная” (“Lullaby”)—Louna

3. “Я– БурыйМедведь” (“I Am a Brown Bear”)—СерьГа

4. “Солнце” (“Sun”)—Аффинаж

5. “Инстаграм” (“Instagram”)—Ночные Снайперы
