About this project

My name is Tatiana Archangel.  "The Positive Russian" is an album of my songs in both English and Russian languages. You can listen to one version and read a perfectly adapted translation, then listen to the translated version while reading the original one, or as you please.

 I am a representative of both Russian and American cultures. My album is a reflection of that cultural mix, but everyone who hear my songs can relate to the issues and stories I sing about. 

Positive Russian  --  is what I am called sometimes by those who meet me. I like that. Through all of my transcontinental experiences I have collected stories to tell about myself and others, and surely I could have chosen to deliver them as dark, full of hardship, heartbreak and suffering of all kinds, but I'd rather choose to be positive, even while telling the darkest story. Wasn't born that way. I'm, from Russia, remember? My life shaped me into a Positive Russian. My songs inspire positive perception of cultural differences, I think, because no matter what language we are born to speak --  we can always relate to each other through music and emotion.

I want to share my songs all across Russian-English-speaking world, bridging the two and creating a true Russian-American Music Connection, that could inspire cross-cultural communication delivered through most powerful mediums of language and music!

The album release party is planned for June 22nd (my BD)! 

Risks and challenges

I have almost everything in place. I have the songs, the producers, the recording studio, the musicians, the T-shirt makers, the album-cover manufacturers, the caterers, promoters ... -- all in place. Of course, things can always go...
not exactly as planned, but I am -- the Positive Russian, and so I know, that my album will be produced. It will be a lot of fun overcoming the challenges that it might present, and a great journey.
So, I welcome you, from the bottom of my heart, to become a very highly appreciated part of that journey of mine!
