Russian Army Choir Performs Stirring Rendition of Adele’s Skyfall

Leave a comment

Skyfall sung by the Russian Army Choir in St. Petersburg.   The seven man group delivered their rendition of Adele’s Oscar-winning theme tune from the 2012 film Skyfall, on a breakfast television show on the city’s Channel 5.

Founded in 1928, Russia’s military choir is better known for military classics like Katjusha, which tells the tale of a military wife yearning for her husband at the front.

But the choir also has a proud tradition of stirring cover versions of popular songs. In the past they have covered Sweet Home Alabama and reworked Men at Work’s Land Down Under as a Russian folk song.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
