The Alexandrov Ensemble sings "Suliko", conducted by Boris Alexandrovich Alexandrov, recorded 1950s or 1960s. This is a Georgian traditional song. The photo is of the Ensemble marching through London, probably in 1956 (or possibly 1963) to their concert venue. The 1963 venue was the Albert Hall; the 1956 venue was elsewhere. That is Nelson's column (Trafalgar Square) in the background - and of course an old Routemaster bus. ------------------------------------------ FROM WIKIPEDIA: Suliko (Georgian: სულიკო) is a Georgian female and male name meaning 'soul'. It is also the title of a love poem written in 1895 by Akaki Tsereteli, which became widely known throughout the Soviet Union as a song performed with music composed by Varenka Tsereteli. In that form it was often performed on radio during Joseph Stalin's rule, reputedly because it was the emperor's favorite. It was translated to and performed in multiple languages including Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, English and German. ------------------------------------------ Я могилу милой искал, Но ее найти нелегко, Долго я томился и страдал; Где же ты моя Сулико! Розу на пути встретил я, В поисках уйдя далеко, Роза, пожалей, услышь меня, Нет ли у тебя Сулико? Среди роз душистых, в тени, Песню соловей звонко пел, Я у соловья тогда спросил Сулико не ты ли пригрел? Соловей вдруг замолчал, Розу тронул клювом легко, Ты нашел, что ищешь, - он сказал Вечным сном здесь спит Сулико Роза, наклонившись слегка, Свой бутон раскрыв широко, Тихо прошеплала мне тогда Не найти тебе Сулико. --------------------------------------------- I was looking for my sweetheart's grave, And longing was tearing my heart. Without love my heart felt heavy, I cried to the night - "Where are you, my Suliko? " Alone among the thorns of the bush A lone rose was blooming My heart was beating hard, I had to ask it: "Where have you hidden Suliko?". A nightingale hid with bated breath In the branches of the rose thorn Gently, then, I asked him if he was the one, if he had any news of Suliko The Nightingale lifted his head high And sang a loud clear song to the stars His eyes held a gleam, and he cocked his head As if to tell me "Yes, yes, I know Suliko!" Suddenly the nightingale fell silent And softly touched the rose with the beak "You have found what you are looking for," he said, In an eternal sleep Suliko is resting here." ----------------------------------------

My thoughts and tears are with the Russian people's deep sorrow for the great loss of such a powerful and beloved band. I will miss you all. Rest in peace dear friends!

Ach würden doch alle Soldaten nur noch singen, statt zu schießen, es wäre der Kriegstreiberei endlich ein Ende gesetzt... Sie könnten dann gemeinsam singen, sich kennen- und schätzenlernen und die Welt wäre eine bessere.

Великолепное исполнение грузинской песни.

Wunderschöner Klassiker!! Der Lieblingssong meiner Mutter (waschechte Russin). Als Kind musste ich mir oft solche Lieder anhören. :-)) Heute gefallen sie mir selbst sehr gut!

Я могилу милой искал, Это было мне нелегко. Часто останавливался и вздыхал. Где же ты, моя Сулико? Часто останавливался и вздыхал. Где же ты, моя Сулико? Увидал я розу в саду, Что лила, как слезы, росу. Ты ль так расцвела далеко, Милая моя Сулико? Ты ль так расцвела далеко, Милая моя Сулико? Над любимой розой своей Прятался в ветвях соловей. Я спросил, вздохнув глубоко: "Где же ты, моя Сулико?" Я спросил, вздохнув глубоко: "Где же ты, моя Сулико?" Я могилу милой искал, Это было мне нелегко. Часто останавливался и вздыхал. Где же ты, моя Сулико? Часто останавливался и вздыхал. Где же ты, моя Сулико?

This is so beautiful. They are photographed marching up Whitehall in London, where they laid a wreath at the Cenotaph in memory of their British allies and comrades who gave their lives in a mutual cause.

das ist aber ein Georgisches Melodie nicht Russisch, und auch suliko ist Georgisches Lied...

Wer bei diesem Lied auch nur im geringsten an Stalin denkt ist für mich Gehirnamputiert !

Ich bin ja kein Militarist, wirklich nicht, aber wenn ein russischer Soldatenchor singt, lasse ich alles stehen und liegen. Erst recht für diesen hier. Und erinnere mich noch, wie ich beim ersten Mal bei der Melodie "Suliko" dahinschmolz - es war ein stimmgewaltiger Soldatenchor in Smolensk mit einem wahrhaft umwerfenden, engelähnlichen Tenorsolisten - , bis der Text bei mir ankam.

Ich liebe die russische Sprache und Gesänge. Nicht in meiner Muttersprache "Deutsch" war ich so perfekt wie in Russisch und bekam dafür die Herdermedaille vor 55 Jahren. Möge es an meinen slawischen Wurzeln liegen???

I can say with some certainty that the picture was taken in 1956. There is a series of pictures from this date. There is also a picture of my younger brother dressed in full Highland uniform greeting the above band. He was all of 5 years old at the time and the picture made the pictorial press and the London Illustrated News. If anyone has a copy I would be most grateful.I can be reached on [email protected] Many thanks in advance. Incidentally the bus in the background is NOT a Routemaster. It is one of the old AEC Busses.

Who told you unavailable? some insane leaders block it doesn't mean it is illegal. someday they tell you its OK then block disappeared. We don't know who make this policy regarding specific website. That's a basic difference between Western and Chinese, while they think they have free media, even if the media brainwash them sometimes. In China, everyone be skeptical on this issue, then compare different news resource. Western people say we know nothing. Actually western people know nothing...

1、四处去寻找苏丽珂, 悼念和悲哀压着我。 失去心中爱多痛苦, 怎不回答我,苏丽珂?     2、树林深处有花一朵, 花上露水珠往下落。 早先你也像盛开的花, 如今在哪里,苏丽珂?   3、抬头又看见树一棵, 有只小夜莺树上躲。 深深叹口气,我问她: 你可在这里,苏丽珂? 4、夜莺吻一吻玫瑰花, 低声唱一曲爱之歌。 歌声荡漾在树林里, 仿佛对我说“正是我!”

I love this song! My Mom used to play this when I was little, among other Russian songs(Now I know this is Georgian not Russian though). I'm also from China, I guess our older generation felt a connection to that culture...BTW the lyrics are in Georgian right?

I know about the song because of Stalin. It was his favourite song.

But I don't think this version corresponding to the Suliko original Georgian lyric. Seems they are different.... in the Album Moonlight Over Moscow.
