Yuliy Kim belongs to the brilliant constellation of Russian “bards” of the “first generation” and takes his rightful place among the great names, such as Vysotsky, Okudzhava, Galich, Vizbor. In fact, he is one of the first, and the “last of the Mohicans.”
But Kim is much more than just a Russian “bard”. If you enter “Yuliy Kim” into Google, in Russian, you will obtain 740,000 search results. One needs to read the article about him in Wikipedia in order to grasp the whole scale of his personality and influence on Russian culture and a few generations of Russian people, if you do not know who he is.
Kim is also known as an active member of the human rights movement in the USSR in the 1960s, which is reflected in his so-called “seditious” (or riotous) songs of the Soviet era.
Of all his fellow “bards”, Yuliy Kim is the most theatrical one; people remember by heart his songs from such films as “An Ordinary Miracle”, “The Twelve Chairs”, “The House That Swift Built”, “Bumbarash”, “Man from Boulevard des Capucines”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Pippi Longstocking”, “The Ugly Duckling”, “A Nanny with Moustache”,”The Dog’s Heart” – as well as from the plays “As You Like It”, “The Minor” and many others.
