The song “My Bitter Homeland” is a Russian favorite.
It’s performed by the Kuban Cossack choir, Russia’s beloved, 200-year old choir of burly men in furry hats with swords and red-cheeked women. Aside from the cool outfits, though, their vocal quality and spirit will blow you away.
Even though My Bitter Homeland sounds like an old song, it was actually written in 2002.
Somewhere between a haunting love song and a military march, it talks about Russians’ unquenchable love for their country, pointing out how deeply this love is intertwined with religion and spirituality.
