WELCOME! THE SINGLE “AKVAREL” (“AQUARELLE”)! 

Do you remember we’ve promised a surprise? Here it is!

On Friday, May 28th, “Surganova and the Orchestra” band presents the second single and video on the song from the new album!

“Akvarel” (“Aquarelle”) is the sweetest, most erotic song of our future album. The joy of the first meeting, the joy of discovery, getting to know each other …

We decided to record it in a retro style, you can hear it in the sound as well – the soft contrabass, the string group; you will also see it in the video which will be released simultaneously with the single.

It won’t be long to wait!

UNUSUAL DAY IN VOLGOGRAD

It has been a long time since we had such eventful days as at the beginning  of the long-awaited southern tour! And the start was quite different if compared with our usual tour …


Gallery at Geo.pro

In the morning of the 17th of May “Surganova and the Orchestra” went to Mamayev Kurgan to honor the memory of the greatest feat of the Soviet people. For Svetlana, the daughter and granddaughter of the blockade women, this place is a must on her every visit to Volgograd. The band laid flowers at the Memorial to the Fallen Soviet Soldiers, and Svetlana Surganova gave a short interview to the media. She told about her deep personal attitude to celebration of The Victory Day and to the music of the war years.

“POEMS ARE A WAY TO BREATHE”

This year the Total Dictation has celebrated its “adulthood”.  The worldwide educational event was held for the eighteenth time. The Philological Faculty of Herzen University is one of the oldest sites of Saint Petersburg. It warmly welcomes everyone who wants to test literacy. We had a talk with an experienced “reader”, or “dictationer,” as she jokingly calls herself, Svetlana Surganova. She has been the reader of the Total Dictation at the Faculty of Philology for the fourth time. Svetlana Yakovlevna told about her attitude to songs and poetry, to Pushkin and Rozanov and, of course, to the Total dictation.

“MOSCOW SPRING” WITH SVETLANA SURGANOVA

The correspondent of NewReportage portal tells about the concert by the winners of “Moscow Spring A Capella” Festival at “PushkinRyadom” art space. 

***

This concert attracted my attention for two reasons. First of all, I love a cappella singing. Secondly, I could not miss practically the presentation of a new cultural space.

Anyway, first things first.

Everyone knows Svetlana Surganova, a polyphonic singer, the master of both the violin and the guitar. Rock, Latin, jazz  – they all are in her repertoire.

Recently, she created her own art space in Kolomna area in Saint Petersburg and called it “PushkinRyadom” (“Pushkin is Near”). This rather small space is equipped according to the latest trends of musical fashion. This is a studio, a rehearsal room and a performance area. To my mind, it is destined to become popular because Svetlana’s put so much warmth of her soul into it.

THE 9TH OF MAY IS THE MAIN HOLIDAY!

When asked about my main, my most important holiday, I never recall the New Year or my birthday, I tell about the 9th of May, The Victory Day.

I grew up in a family of women that survived in the blockade. I was raised by my mother and grandmother, both of them endured all 900 days in Leningrad. And therefore for me the Day of Lifting the Siege and The Victory Day are sacred holidays.

On this day I try to observe some traditions every year. I definitely watch the parade, which is broadcast on all TV channels, the Victory Parade. I try to spend this day with my mother and her girlfriends. We go to the city, we walk along the Marsovo Pole, we lay flowers at the “Broken Circle” monument. We have a delicious dinner, talk, sing songs of the war years … If we are not too much tired we stay and watch the salute. If tired, we go home and watch it on TV. This is how we usually spend the 9th of May. 

I take the chance to congratulate everyone on this Great Day. I want everyone to remember it, especially young people. Let us all, with all our works and our thoughts, never allow another war!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MISHA!

Happy Birthday to the “Golden Trumpet” of our band, the keyboard maestro and the soul of our sound, to Mikhail Tebenkov!

Misha, thank you for the generosity of your talent! We love you, appreciate you, and admire you!

We wish you health and family happiness!

SVETLANA SURGANOVA AND HER INNER CORE

In April 2021 the newspaper “Uchitelskaya Gazeta” published a review on Svetlana Surganova’s autobiographic book “Vse Snachala!” (“All Over Again!”). By Denis Stupnikov.

OBSCURE FORTRESS

Svetlana Surganova’s inner core 

Svetlana Surganova is a visible personification of genuine aristocracy of Saint Petersburg. In the times of “Nochnye Snaipery” band she seemed destined to be in the shadow of the bright and impulsive Diana Arbenina. Life decided otherwise. Surganova proved that for all her modesty and delicacy, she had an indestructible inner core.
