PIANOBOY

The magnetic sound of Dmytro Shurov’s (aka Pianoboy) voice and mood-setting sounds of his piano are bound to make the spring evening bright and full of unforgettable memories. The renowned rock pianist will perform the songs and hits, which have already won him great popularity – Vedma (Witch), Etazhi (Floors), Kozhura (Skin), Mertvye Zviozdy (Dead Stars), Prostie Veshchi (Simple Things), Universal (Vselennaya) and others. Having been a member of Okean Elzy, Esthetic Education and Zemfira, Shurov has now found himself in a solo career, for which his fans are eternally grateful.
