BULAT OKUDZHAVA (1924-1997) was Georgian by nationality, but was born in Moscow and lived there nearly his entire life. A prolific composer of “author’s songs” (avtorskiye pesni), his works were romantic and melodic, yet not overtly political. Still, his independent streak kept him from attaining official state sanction for much of his career and lead to his immense popularity among the Soviet intelligentsia, who widely distributed his recordings in magnitizdat form.
