Our beloved Saint Petersburg, thank you for the fantastic concert! For the flowers and gifts, flash mobs and active participation in the charity auction, for your applause and emotions, your support and sincere love!
We did it! We performed our traditional winter concert at Crocus City Hall! New and favorite songs, amazing flash mobs by our fans, two bright premieres and a great sea of flowers – this was our Crocus!
Yesterday we presented our new video in an intimate home-like setting of Crocus City Hall. It was just as we wanted and dreamed of – solemnly and touching at the same time. Today we are releasing it to the world. We believe it will leave a mark on every soul.
“Da budet svet” (“Let be the Light”) video is more than a simple personal story. This is a real revelation about love and loss, about fragility and transience of happiness, about all-consuming tenderness and overwhelming longing. And that even in complete darkness there is always room for light.
It is set at a magic point N, far beyond a city. The main character meets a boy on a deserted road. Who is he – a real person or her imagination? Where did he come from and where will he eventually go? By and large, she is not interested in it. They are happy, together, here and now.
Words and music by: Svetlana Surganova
Directed by: Irina Mironova
This time last year “Surganova and the Orchestra” gave a grand anniversary concert at Crocus City Hall. And today, November 29, 2019, we present its audio version. Find it on all music platforms of the country!
Svetlana Surganova presented a very personal video.
Today Svetlana Surganova presented a new video “Mir – Labirint” (“The World is a Labyrinth”) featuring laconic shots instead of complex plots, lively emotions of friends as an alternative to the play of professional actors and the person, who is the most important to her, for the first time ever on camera.
Before the start of its autumn tour, “Surganova and the Orchestra” released perhaps the most personal video for all 16 years of the band.
The movie was directed by Maria Smelkova, who had already worked on documentaries about the band. This time she suggested making a simple but very real video about emotions of real people. Friendship, love, sympathy – all feelings found a place in it. There is not a single random person in the video. You will see in it: Valeriy Tkhai, the solo guitarist, with his daughter and granddaughter, Nikita Mezhevich, the keyboard player, with his wife, Sergey Sokolov, the drummer, Mikhail Tebenkov, the trumpeter, Maria Savkina, the violinist, Denis Susin, the bass player, the band sound engineer Dmitriy Stepanov, friends and acquaintances of the musicians, and, of course, Liya Davydovna, Svetlana’s mother. Liya Davydovnaafter much persuasion nevertheless agreed to star in the video with her daughter in spite of the emotions that overwhelmed her (she was on the set for the first time and was very worried that she was not an actress and needed to work for the camera).
And the meaning of this video was best explained by Surganova herself:
What is this video about? This is such a message of positivity, smiles and courage. It reminds that life is what is here and right now. Do not be afraid to show your feelings, especially sincere ones, your being in love or being charmed by someone or something. The world is a labyrinth, and if you love and you are not afraid of anything, it will lead you to your dream anyway”.
