“Megapolis” will present their latest project “From The Life Of Planets” and play the best hits over the last 27 years on February 22 at Erarta Stage.
The project, which the band founder Oleg Nesterov calls “cemeterial” is dedicated to the cinema of the thaw period. It began as a book, and resulted in a massive cultural memorial to the 1960s.
“From the Life of the Planets” is about music, cinema, theater and history. It’s probably one of the most ambitious recent musical projects. ("Snob", 2015)
Megapolis band was founded in Moscow in 1987. Their debut album “Morning” was first presented live at the Moscow Rock Laboratory Festival. A lot of songs were based on the lyrics of Joseph Brodsky, Alexandr Barash, and Andrei Voznesensky. In the mid 1990s, the band released the second album “Storm in the village”, and then stopped their music activities.
But the founder, Oleg Nesterov and Mikhail Gabolaev, never left music industry. Over the years their independent record company released around 150 records of such bands as “Masha i Medvedi”, Naik Borzov and “Underwood”.
In 2010, after fourteen years of silence, Megapolis recorded a new album “Supertango”. And in April 2014, released “From the Life of the Planets”. It is a multimedia project of soundtracks to Soviet films that were never finished.
Musicians were working on the project in a castle in the outskirts of Latvia.
