On street musicians
I love Moscow in summer, when the centre of the capital becomes the turf of street musicians! The attitude towards street musicians in Russia has generally changed for the better. I have definitely noticed it after my five years in Moscow. You walk down Kamergersky Pereulok and you hear music by Zemfira, while, just round the corner, it becomes jazz. Or Noize MC on Arbat Street — makes you want to hum all evening.
