 Russia! cd by Stanley Black February 4, 2014 By vilmagu g. See All My Reviews "This is a precious jewel, with a few pieces you can be transported to Russia; also you can feel the joy and the sadness. It is a mix of feelings. I am from Central America and I don't know Russia, but this cd transported me to that far country with a very rich culture. If you don’t know it yet, don’t hesitate, it will be an incredible experience to listen this wonderful music." Report Abuse
