Russien singer in Paris
A fusion of world music, jazz and russian romances
Veronika Bulycheva was born in a small village in the Ural region of Russia. In 1992, she set out for France, her desire for liberty stronger than the ties to her home country.
She sings in Russian and in French, sometimes mixing both languages. Her lyrics describe simple scenarios in which the essential human emotions are lived out ; love, nature, nostalgia and exile are set to blues, pop, bossa nova, and even north African rhythms, all colored by jazz, classical and traditional Russian sonorities. Out of this mixture of influences grows a unique, beautiful music that transcends ideas of country and culture, and truly expresses the phrase “world music”, at home anywhere and everywhere.
“‘World’, ‘trad’, perhaps… but so fresh you can’t but be immediately seduced and conquered forever.” (Libération)
“As to Veronika, they say her warm and deep Slavic timbre well serves an astounding virtuoso vocal range as well as her original poetic and humorous lyrics…” Nouvelles, Genève)
