Veronika Dolina is a brilliant Russian poet, bard, translator, has her own style, powerful charisma, an absolutely recognizable singer. Many call her "Okudzhava in a skirt"! The absolute sincerity of her poetry, the ballad form of the songs, the unique, characteristic only for her, the timbre of her voice - make the meetings with her unforgettable, and the communication on creative
evenings remain in memory for a long time.
She first appeared in Kiev at the age of 19 at the author's song festival, she conquered the people of Kiev, came into conflict with the authorities, because the song “When we lived without illumination, I would give birth to children from everyone I loved, of all kinds and stripes ...” did not coincide with the "Moral Code of the Builder of Communism."
Her songs and her life complement each other. She has four very creative children. It is always relevant. Once, when she responded with a song to the departure of Jews from the USSR: “my relatives are leaving ...”, and now she writes, sings, tours in Russia, the USA, France, the Czech Republic and other countries.
It is good to drink coffee with her, read poems, listen to songs, speak on various topics. These friendly feelings are very well felt at concerts. Unfortunately, Veronika Arkadyevna Dolina in recent years rarely happens in Ukraine. But here's a lucky break! May 21, 2019 The author's evening of the poet will take place in the House of Actor on Yaroslav Val. The hall is small, but very cozy and homely. We are sure that everyone who comes this evening will leave only after a long applause and autographs. And the name of the evening, which did not fit on the poster, given by the Valley itself, appeals to the audience: “... How is your ladyship ...?” Thanks for the excitement and support of us.
I would like to answer the name of an American musical of the 30s of the last century: “I want to live, but they don’t give!”
