Leningrad Cowboys with the Red Army Orchestra and Choir: Happy Together

Those lovable kooks, the Leningrad Cowboys, with the Red Army Orchestra and Choir, singing Happy Together in their legendary concert in Helsinki’s Senate Square at the end of the cold war in 1993, immortalized in the Aki Kaurismäki documentary Total Balalaika Show, one of the greatest concert films ever made.

Of all the concerts ever performed, this is the one I wish I had been at.
