October 19 2005

October 18 at the shopping center Gorbushkin yard "was a presentation of the new album the singer Barbara. New creation with elements of ethno called "Dreams."

The presentation was unconventional - in the form of the action dedicated to the fight against piracy in Russia. The essence of the action "behind enemy lines" that drives the singer for some time will be sold at "anti-piracy costs - 50% of the official price. In undertaking the singer supported and many friends - actors.

But back to the very album.

When writing songs in the album were used electronic samples and live ethnic instruments (jew's harp, tambourine, etc.). In the album next to the modern fashion melodies and arrangements very well side by side, some elements of folk singing: clearly audible motives traditional singing of northern peoples and nations of central Russia.

When you create an album, Barbara helped such folklore as "Chukotka", "Charm", a group of "Sitara".

By the way, participated in the presentation of a group of Chukotka - dressed in traditional clothing northern young, energetic, with full dedication, "warmed up" before going public with the very culprits celebration. I must say that the speech Chukchi so has brought the public that some people do forget that the purpose of their visit - a meeting with Barbara.

But after a while, came to the stage itself is a beautiful singer, dressed in elaborate costume, with music accompanied by two musicians who performed the most brilliant songs, including a super popular and now "fly so sung."

Then, all those gathered had the opportunity to get autographs of stars.

In addition, chastlivchikam who find themselves in a solemn moment in the presentation of the album "Dreams", combined with the anti-piracy action, managed to talk with famous people - friends, Barbara: Otar Kushanashvili, Polina Gagarina, DJ "Russian Radio", and concurrently lead the ceremony Gleb Deyev.

The album "Dreams" - is a fashionable high-quality music, organically combining the latest trends in the world (intellectual euro - pop, new - age, ethnics, etc.). His album, Barbara tries to push the entire Russian pop - culture to a new, global level. Prerequisites for this already exist - the song "Dance with me" (English version of "fowl sang") sounds today in active rotation on radio stations in Belgium, Serbia, Montenegro and Cyprus.

In 2001 the company «NOX Music» released her debut album, which was called: "Barbara." Work on this CD throughout 2000. Most of the songs were written by unknown young authors, and only the name of Kim Breitburg - the main songwriter Boris Moiseev - something told listeners. In the recording plate involved young musicians - multi-instrumentalist, combined into one group, named after Barbara.

In summer 2002, Barbara received an unexpected offer.Founder of Swedish studio Cosmo (This is the company "made" the last album the group A-ha, and Britney Spears) Norn Bjorn invited her to record several tracks with Swedish symphonic orchestra. Cooperation with Sweden resulted in the song "It's behind" in old style, fashion RnB. But the rest of the songs to record new album Barbara decided to continue in Russia.

In March 2003, she released her second album, called "Closer." Most of the songs were recored in the studio of "The Brothers Grimm" - it is in this company was able to find adequate ideas of the singer arrangements and sound.

I note finally, that Barbara invited to celebrate the 50 anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest, as guests of honor. Thus, the organizers noted a high level of originality and singer.
