UFA, 19 February 2019. /Bashinform News Agency/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
Boris Grebenshchikov and the Aquarium group performed in Ufa as part of a tour over the Urals. The entertainment complex "Ogni Ufy" gathered several hundred fans of the group.
During the performance of some songs, the famous Bashkir musician Robert Yuldashev appeared on the stage. He accompanied the "Aquarium" with kurai (Bashkir musical instrument), which was greeted by the public. It turned out that the Bashkir kurai harmonized with the songs of Grebenshchikov no worse than a flute traditional for the "Aquarium". By the way, Irish musician Brian Finnegan plays the flute in the band. “When we were playing in London, in the Royal Albert Hall, and rehearsing for the first time together with Brian, I thought it would be great to bring him to Russia so that people would hear how it should really sound. Ten years have passed since then, ”Boris Grebenshchikov told the story of the musician appearance in the group.
Grebenshchikov comes to Ufa with concerts every year. Two years ago, the day before the main performance, the band played in Gostiny Dvor public area. This year, the musicians did not give such a concert for Ufa residents.
