Time for some humour.
Volshebny Mikrofon (Magic Microphone) is a children's musical centre based in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, Russia. The centre was formed in 1990 and immediately started holding the annual Regional Festival of Children's TV Pop Song Volshebny Mikrofon, which still continues. This festival was so successful that in 1993 they were given a weekly TV show on regional TV stations, which, over the years, became not only a national success but was also achieved international popularity, until the show was cancelled due to the financial crisis of 2008, and while the centre is still looking for funding to resume the TV show, no backers have yet been found. In 2010, 2 students of Volshebny Mikrofon, Liza Drozd and Sasha Lazin, represented Russia at the 2010 Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC) with the song Boy and Girl.
Bayu Bay [Nighty Night] was originally released as Kolybel’naya Pesnya (Spi, Moya Radost’, Usni!) [Lullaby (Sleep, My Darling, Go To Sleep!)] in the Masha i Medved’ [Masha and the Bear] episode Spi, Moya Radost’, Usni!. It is probably the least successful lullaby, as it extorts the listener to play the music louder and to not yawn or fall asleep. In the episode where it appears, Masha is having trouble sleeping, so she beds down in a cot next to Bear‘s bed, but this doesn’t help, so Bear teaches her how to count sheep, but Masha does it in her own individual way and only succeeds in keeping Bear awake. This is a great fun version that was performed at the Novogodnego Kontserta 2018 [New Years Concert 2018]. It is sung by the vocal group Soroki (Magpies), made up of Sophia Samara, Valeria Demonova, Arina Grigoreva, and Anastasia Ryazhskikh. The girls are supported by members of the dance studio Ekspressiya [Expression].You can follow Volshebny Mikrofon on their blog, on Twitter, on vKontakte, and on their YouTube channel.
