Ivan Kupala │ Vlad Krutskikh
I thought that I would bring in the New Year with Vlad Krutskikh and Street Magic, singing their cool rendition of "Ivan Kupala". Ivan Kupala Day (St. John the Baptist Day), is celebrated in Eastern European countries around July 7. Tvorila Night, the eve of Ivan Kupala Day, is considered to be a time for good humor, mischief, and boisterous fun. On Ivan Kupala day itself, children have water fights, and perform pranks mostly involving pouring water over someone's head. After all, it is St. John the Baptist day. I am a bit nostalgic about "Ivan Kupala", as it is the song that introduced me to the amazing, and entertaining, Vlad Krutskikh and Street Magic. It is interesting to note that all the performers in this cool video are wearing Ivan Kupala (St. John The Baptist) themed costumes. Happy New Year to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.
