Russia, 1989, avtorskaya pesnya

Вера Матвеева [Vera Matveeva]…И стану я рекой: A lonely, expressive voice accompanied only by a single guitar, singing Matveeva’s pastoral poetry with such elegant passion. A true bard whose music transcends language, though if you check lyrics, you’ll find she sings a range of elemental themes, and from rain to dark night, from icicles to palm branches. The seasons play a large role in her poetry, too, alluding not only to the general condition of mankind but also expressing poetic parallels to her own feelings.
