Sochi attracts mainly Russian tourists in the summer. On the one hand, they come looking for glitter and glamour and are prepared to pay for it; on the other, they attach great importance to Russian culture and traditions. The ultimate example of this can be found in Sochi’s nightlife. Many restaurants try to attract customers with flashing neon signs, semi-luxurious interiors and an abundance of staff. At the same time, every restaurant upholds a well-known Russian tradition of live musicians who belt out Russian chansons from behind an electric piano. The book ‘Sochi Singers’ explores how a deeply rooted Russian tradition goes hand in hand with the city’s new capitalist glamour.
