Dustyesky bring the love home this Christmas. A massive night of song and fundraising for Mullum Neighbourhood Centre. Pravda!
Thirty humble men of Mullumgrad work in typewriter factory all week and meet every Tuesday night at the ex-services club for beer and singsong. In May 2017, they appeared on Moscow Channel One television and did live streaming concerts for real Russian audiences who were amazed and delighted, despite occasionally curious pronunciation. Performing Red Army songs, folk standards and orthodox hymns in four-part harmonies with gusto and élan, Dustyesky amaze crowds with their extraordinary voices, dapper looks and sweltering charm.
Dustyesky has now performed sell out shows in Sydney (Bondi Pavilion), Melbourne (Melba Spiegeltent, Melbourne Fringe Festival), Woodford Folk Festival, Mullum Music Festival, Falls Festival and the Brisbane Russian Community Centre. Choir Commissar Comrade Swainsky (aka Andrew Swain) says: “You can always spot a Russian in our audience – they sing with us, tears streaming down their cheeks… ”. The evolving repertoire features the Russian National Anthem, Orchy Chornye, The Red Army Is The Strongest and Kalinka, among lesser known show-stoppers.
Dustyesky always sing with love and respect the wonderful songs while always including a rich vein of humour and vitality in every performance. Davai!
All proceeds to Mullumbimby Neighbourhood Centre.
