Kyrgyzstan's New Constitution Accepted


In an apparent spirit of compromise, I am told that the Bakiev administration and Kyrgyzstan parliament have worked out and accepted changes to the Constitution. In effect, this completes Bakiev's initial promises from last year and resolves the recent stand-off between reformers and pro-Bakiev supporters.

Kommersant has an interesting interview with the former Kyrgyz president Akaev. In it he discusses his views on the current stalemate in Kyrgyzstan, and his life in Russia away from politics.

I know this is an odd question, but do you know any Russian hip hop singers?

They could be former Soviet Union rappers. I am desperate.

My wife says Russian hip hop singers include:

Dezl (real name Kirill Tolmatsky)

Serega

Timati

Hope that helps

You might want to check out the group Kasta from Rostov-on-Don, sometimes regarded as the Russian equivalent of Wu-Tang ("Ru-Tang?").

There is also Russian hip-hop on myspace.com-- you may be able to get some contacts through the Muscovite "DJ Tactics" at myspace.com/drumprogramming.

or check out http://hip-hop.ru/ depending on how good your Russian is.
