One of Russia’s best-selling bands and iconic ensembles, Leningrad is a rugged and raw multi-genre punk band active since 1997. It is a cultural icon in the country with hits including ‘ZOZH’ and ‘V Pitere pit’.
If there is one Russian music group that dares to push the bounds of social propriety, it is Leningrad. They’ve been winding up the political elites of Russia since then. The former Mayor of Moscow even banned them playing in the city for a while. Their reputation, or perhaps notoriety being a better word, is not however restricted to Russia. With a collective viewership of over 500 million on YouTube, Leningrad has a global outreach and popularity.
Leningrad is one of the most popular music groups in Russia today. With their unique “ska-rock” sound, Leningrad stands out from the crowd of Russian music groups, making them instantly identifiable. Along with their musical style, their lyrics bluntly mock various aspects of Russian society; from consumerism to alcoholism.
M Premier and BY present the latest edition of the PaRUS Music Festival, an annual celebration that invites top Russian pop and rock stars to Dubai.
This can’t-miss event has seen the likes of Grigory Leps, Egor Kreed and Ruki Vverh in past seasons.
