Tarja Blog #12 – Hello Again Russia!

June 10, 2011

I arrived to Moscow yesterday and the beautiful summer sun is shining here. I love it!

I was very lucky in fact, since all the flights day before and the day after my flight got cancelled in Buenos Aires due to the ashes erupted from a Chilean volcano.

The reason I travelled to Moscow is this:

I had a nice rehearsal with the Russian band Kipelov today. They are very kind people. I was pretty worried about my Russian language, but the band told me that I am doing quite fine…

On Sunday we will be performing one song together in the Rock on Volga festival in Samara and I am sure it will be a great experience. This is the first time for me to take part in a Russian Rock festival, so I am thrilled.

According to the festival’s official website they are expecting to receive 250.000 people this time! This will make it the biggest Rock Festival in Europe OMG. Nice way to start the summer shows. That’s fantastic!

Now I am waiting for my flight to Samara where I’ll meet my band and my brother Toni who is going to play the keyboards on our next show. Christian is having more important issues to take care at home… so, soon we will be able to congratulate him for his family’s growth Fingers crossed that everything will go fine.

We will rock Samara in few days!

With love, Tarja
