    Great example of the power of music to cross cultural lines! I can dig it, man!

    They're Finnish, not Russian.

    That's amazing! I knew none of this. It's the Red Army guys I love here, super voices and having fun. Are they from Finland too?

    The guys with the funny hair etc. are Finnish. The Red Army Choir is Russian. They were very popular here in the beginning of the nineties, when Soviet Union broke and the choir could travel freely. I was in their concert at Senate Square, Helsinki, 1993, 60 000 people (that is lot of people in Helsinki). Their version of Stairway to Heaven in one of my favourites, too!
