Leningrad Cowboys: Total Balalaika Show

1994 NR

Russia's renowned Alexandrov Red Army Ensemble jams with Finland's outlandish rockers the Leningrad Cowboys as 70,000 people cheer in this concert video by Aki Kaurismaki. Change is definitely in the air as the Cold War comes to a close and balalaika-playing Red Army musicians join the Leningrad Cowboys on a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." The odd pairing of these two groups results in an inspiring collaboration.
