Russian drinking song is a separate element of our culture. She helps to live – not to grieve, and improves appetite, and increases vitality. Who among us does not like to sing at the table? Especially when the desired degree of gatherings has already been set. So Channel One decided to experiment in this direction, launching the show “Singing in the Kitchen by the Whole Country”. This is not “Play, my beloved accordion!”. This is an atypical vocal show, in which the winner is not the one who sings better, but the one who does it more soulfully than the rest. By the way, instead of salted milk mushrooms, they will give 3 million rubles for the victory – in our time, a very good compensation for a broken voice. “KP” represents the rules of the premiere project and some of its participants.

Black guys

Russia is a real democracy! This means that vocalists can be of any race and gender. The Sounds of Dreams team consists of Zambian students studying in our country – PFUR, MISIS and even GITIS. They all met here, everyone wants to win three million rubles and will start their victorious path with Elena Vaenga’s song “I wish”. Apparently, to heighten the contrast.

Pop star

The vocal team of priest Andrey Kalchev arrived from Vladivostok. The archpriest of the Church of the Assumption of the Mother of God manages to sing both at services and at home. Together with the father, his wife and five children will perform vocals (all are involved in music – some are studying to be a conductor, some to be a pianist, some play the saxophone, some sing in the choir). To start in the show, the Kalchevs chose Tsoi’s Cuckoo.

Hope little orchestra

The total age of this Armavir trio is 239 years. The name is appropriate – “Hope”. Vigorous grandmothers sang many decades ago, so they will seriously compete with all other participants. Especially taking into account the fact that they start the competition with the rural hit “Meadow Night”.

Bashkir grandmothers

A real dynasty of vocalists will defend the honor of the most musical Bashkiria (Zemfira, Yuri Shevchuk, Morgenstern, etc.) in the project. The Kulagin family from Birsk is represented in the show by seven cheerful young ladies aged from 11 to 90 years old. In their performance, “Noisy reeds” will turn into a real table polyphony.

SHOW RULES

Singing families or teams of singers (from 3 to 7 people) from all over Russia come to Moscow to perform their favorite drinking song in front of the jury. In total, four qualifying editions are planned, in each of which 12 teams will sing. Eight teams will advance to the semi-finals (at this stage, guest stars will appear in the show), and only the top three teams will compete for the main prize of three million rubles in the final. That is, participants aiming for a long distance will have to prepare a decent arsenal of hits: about 10 songs in various genres – from classic drinking songs to pop hits. They are not allowed to sing. Vocalists will be judged by Svetlana Kryuchkova, Alexander Semchev, Karina Andolenko, Anatoly Zhuravlev and Zhan Milimerov. The project is led by Valdis Pelsh.
