ბულატ ოკუჯავა - კომპოზიტორი

Bulat Shalvovich Okudzhava (also transliterated as Boulat
Okudjava/Okoudjava/Okoudzhava; Russian: Була́т Ша́лвович Окуджа́ва,
Georgian: ბულატ ოკუჯავა) (May 9, 1924 – June 12, 1997) was a Soviet
poet, writer, and singer-songwriter with songs based on the native folklore and traditions. He was one of the founders of the
Russian genre called "author's song" (авторская песня, avtorskaya
pesnya). He was of Armenian-Georgian origin, born in Moscow and died in
Paris. He was the author of about 200 songs, set to his own poetry. His
songs are a mixture of Russian poetic and folksong traditions and the
French chansonnier style represented by such contemporaries of Okudzhava
as Georges Brassens. Though his songs were never overtly political (in
contrast to those of some of his fellow "bards"), the freshness and
independence of Okudzhava's artistic voice presented a subtle challenge
to Soviet cultural authorities, who were thus hesitant for many years to
give official sanction to Okudzhava as a singer-songwriter.
