How to restore a broken voice

Alas, with the loss of voice, sooner or later, every vocalist is faced. Very often, the cause of a broken voice is not intensive vocals, but a cry, especially in a state of intense anger or affect.

A vocalist can only speak in a whisper, in pain. These are the steps you need to take right after you pluck your voice. FIRST AID WITH A BROKEN VOICE In order to avoid the dangerous effects of a voice injury, you first need to take it as soon as you feel a rash and sudden hoarseness. Continue reading

Songs of the Civil War: this is not forgotten …

Many people know the expression: “When the guns say, the muses are silent.” His rightness is relative. So, in the Leningrad blockade, the muses were not silent. On the contrary, the verses of Olga Berggolz and Nikolai Tikhonov helped people survive, and gave faith in victory.

Songs of bondage, prisons and penal servitude: from Pushkin to the Circle

Indestructible pity, “mercy for the fallen”, including even the most inveterate robbers and murderers, gave rise to a special song layer. And let other refined aesthetes fastidiously turn their nose – in vain! As folk wisdom tells us not to swear from scrip and prison, so in real life of bondage, prison and hard labor went hand in hand. And in the twentieth century, few at least didn’t take a sip from this bitter bowl … WHO ARE THE SOURCES? The songs of bondage, prisons and penal servitude, paradoxically as it may seem, originate in the works of our most freedom-loving poet, A.S. Pushkin. Once, being in the Southern exile, the young poet swung at the Moldovan boyar Balsa, and blood would have spilled if the people around had not interfered. So, during a brief house arrest, the poet created one of the poetic masterpieces – The Prisoner. Continue reading
