Piknik

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 September 30, 2018:

1. Принцесса (“Princess”) – Пикник

2. Вот она мечта (“Here’s the dream”) – Вадим Самойлов

3. Последняя песня (“The last song”) – Кукрыниксы

4. Голос & струны (“Voice & strings”) – Noize MC

5. Искусство (“Art”) – Louna

Lucy Harnish has an English Literature degree with a double minor in Russian Culture and History from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Lucy will spend two semesters with SRAS studying Russian as a second language in St Petersburg, Russia. Lucy hopes that by the end of her time in St Petersburg she will be able to reread the works of Turgenev, Dostoyevsky, and Tolstoy in the Russian language. She plans to utilize the experience she gains while studying abroad to pursue a degree in journalism.
