Viktor Tsoi – a Soviet rock legend

  It's been so many years since Viktor Tsoi died, but he and his songs still live in the hearts of fans. He was – well, he still is – a legend. Of Russian and Korean origin, he formed a band called Kino, and became an icon for people of so many nations in USSR and beyond. I like his songs, and my friends in Moscow would often play them on acoustic guitar and sing. Below are just a few bits of Viktor Tsoi's heritage.

(Pechal' - Sadness)

Группа крови
(Gruppa krovi — Blood type)

(Kukushka - Cuckoo)

Пачка сигарет
(Pachka sigaret — Package of cigarets)

Звезда по имени Солнце
(Zvezda po imeni Solntse — Star called Sun)

Wikipedia article about Tsoi's Wall, a place in Moscow where his fans gather.

    1. I read somewhere that he even visited Japan in 1990.
