Nashe Radio Top 5: February 2019

Published: March 4, 2019

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 February 24, 2019:

1. Волк (“Wolf”) – Сплин

2. Имена (“Names”) – Горшенев

3. Выше (“Above”) – Кипелов 

4. Быть знаменитым (“To Be Famous”) – Башаков Band & Сергей Чиграков

5. Мама, прощай (“Mom, Goodbye”) – Гарик Сукачёв  There is no music video posted of “Мама, прощай,” so here is a song entitled “Прощай, мой друг” by the same band.
