Bonjour à toutes et à tous! I am a musician happily living in Helsinki for so long that I am embarrassed to say it. All right, from year 78. I usually say I feel French, Finnish, and Irish and equally proud of all these halves. I actually play and sing all of these music as well, included, well… Russian sometimes. I love to write songs in my mother language and translate songs to French. The three Vyssotski songs I chose for this festival are actually translated by a French Canadian lady called Annie-Pénélope Dussault.
