Legendary West End: Misty Albion musicals

In the modern world, for most people the word “musical” is traditionally associated with American Broadway, the shining lights and posters of many theaters, each of which beckons a charmed passerby to go through wide open doors and at least look out of the corner of his eye to a music show.

Of course, the musical as a genre really originated in America, combining operetta, ballet, variety show and drama on the same stage. The first musical is traditionally considered the production of “Black Crook”, which premiered in September 1866 in New York. Then, in the following decades, a musical boom hit Europe, the peak of which fell on Great Britain, which many today, alas, tend to forget.

Interview with Gayana

The Moscow English-speaking group Gayana is a fresh project of the domestic music scene, which performs refined eighteenth-century pop music. The unique music and style of Gayana turned out to be in demand both at the country’s largest festivals and at various club venues.

We won’t tell further, we think Gayana and Vladimir Boytsov themselves will be able to present their team.

Here’s a situation for you, I’m an ordinary listener. Some music is playing in my player. One melody replaces another, why should I focus on your song? What can catch me, spoiled by modern diversity, in your work?
Gayana Boytsova: We do not pursue the goal of hooking the listener. In commercial pop music there are different clichés for this, but we are not interested in and do not use it, since our only task is to write sincerely about what is of particular importance to us, without any tricks. I can assume that just the sound and style, which are not like all the musical diversity, can catch. Those who know English can be hooked on texts whose themes are not peculiar to pop music as such.
