Sochi attracts mainly Russian tourists in the summer. On the one hand, they come looking for modern glamour; on the other, they attach great importance to Russian traditions. The ultimate example of this can be found in Sochi’s nightlife. Restaurants try to attract customers with flashing neon signs and semi-luxurious interiors. At the same time, every restaurant upholds a well-known Russian tradition of live musicians who belt out Russian chansons from behind an electric piano. Sochi Singers explores how a deeply rooted Russian tradition goes hand in hand with the city’s new capitalist glamour. The images are combined with quotes from popular Russian chansons.
