NOVELTY - Interview Kazaky 'Star Brothers' (translated from Ukrainian to English)

We should clarify; the text could be changed to the original, to make it more understandable to English language :)


  • Can tell us what have turned them into what are now, a breakthrough in music and style? Did you have fear that society would not accept you?

We cannot judge, it is not correct. Maybe we were the first made popular choreography by men in high heels. But we do not approve of it or accept it. As for the music, we do our best for the public. Fears and concerns... In any enterprise, there are doubts. But, as I said "not all wolves living in the forest". The main thing is not to be afraid. In addition, the public has very well welcomed. They are the greatest gift of our success, tens of thousands of fans that we are doing around the world.

  • Often, the popularity of artists starts in our own country and then they expand their boundaries, their popularity started abroad. It was his tactic?

Yes. In Ukraine and neighboring countries are dominated by only a "Russian-Pop" genre. It is a natural and normal function of the local culture. Impose our ideas on the inside so it was illogical. We only resort to a culture that is more familiar with what we do.

  • Any art has some promise. What do you want to convey to the people?

The art is very different. We work in the categories of pop culture and dance. The main purpose of these categories is to entertain people. But we will not make political statements, or analyzing the economy. If we are talking about a specific promise of us the main thing is not be afraid to be yourself, believe in yourself, develop your talent and express it.

  • Not so long ago collaborated with Madonna we could disturbances more about this?

Everything was very simple: was interesting, easy. It was a great experience and a great result. He is unlikely to say something as well as: "as reported by an insider..." because they were quite professional, a few geniuses, when he came with all the team, where each minute had no errors or improvisation. The same Madonna - beautiful, talented, professional actress and a very sweet person. But now everyone knows that.

  • Do you think in collaborating with Russian or Ukrainian artists?

While we have no plans defined on this. But, if you have a good musical material all may be possible.

  • Are they working on a new program? What they acidic us new programs?

Every day we are thinking about a new production. We have a lot of ideas and new songs, but we will not disclose the details of the new program.

  • How did the idea of dancing in heels? There were strange in these circumstances?

Honestly, we had no idea. Before you show the public our choreography in heels, rehearsing a year, we trained six hours a day. At the beginning it was not easy, but it is a technique that requires many trials. The idea originated in comic circumstances. One of the dancers left heel in the Ballroom. The size was perfect and this idea came spontaneously to a group in high heels, which is now called Kazaky.

  • Are you often as artists with more style? In everyday life, would have to follow the fashion trend?

Of course, we like our style. It helps our great stylist and designer Anna Osmekhina (our representative in the fashion industry and the media as our style). However, in everyday life we dress more comfortably. Each one has its own style: 
Cyril - Casual
Oleg - sports
Arthur - classic
Stas - ethnic.

  • Do you have any idea to change your style?

For three years we have repeatedly changed our style. High heel shoes are our tool because they are already part of the image, which are immutable. But the style, the costume varies from time to time.

  • Eurovision Song Contest is very popular... have been thought to represent Ukraine?

We never thought about it.

  • What do they think about the similarity in Russia about your group? What do you think about the similarity in Russia about your group?

Nothing. It is not a similarity. We have a lot of fans which we parody. In Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, China, Philippines, there are types that inspired our creativity. All the artists have imitators and this is normal.

  • In his concerts and videos they have plenty of choreography. Do you think make a big bet by vocals or choreography?

It depends on. It depends on the song... We are now preparing a new video for the new song where there are fewer dances.

  • What do you think is the secret of your success?

Employability (capacity for work), self-confidence, our team, and a lot of circumstances that make up our team. We have worked hard and we continue to work very hard to achieve success. It is not luck, random, or the result of the investment. You only need to work.

  • Do you enjoy your work?

Of course!

  • How would you treat with the tabloid press?

Not possible... are still there? (Laughs)

  • They are ahead of the New Year’s celebrations; do have some special for the celebration of New Year traditions?

In general, we celebrate the New Year at work. That is, quick and sober. If we act in Kiev, everything is very traditional, with our friends and our loved ones.

  • What expected us next year?

Only new successes and a lot of work.

  • New Year wishes

Live in peace, loving others, and enjoy the music!

*PRIMICIA* Entrevista sobre el nuevo video musical de Kazaky llamado "The Sun"

*PRIMICIA* Entrevista sobre el nuevo video musical de Kazaky llamado "The Sun"

Fue un trabajo duro traducirlo del Hebreo al Español, pero aquí está lo mas cercano al Español, una disculpa muy grande pero no sé quien borró la nota anterior, como quiera, si la borran la publicaremos en nuestra pagina de México agréguenos ;) ahí nadie los borrará https://www.facebook.com/kazakystsmx?fref=ts

Como banda sexy y provocativa ¿Cómo consiguió que Ucrania los aceptara ya que es un país conservador?

"La primera reacción de la opinión pública Ucrania era muy indecisa y también hubo muchas críticas, pero siempre sentí el público es curioso sobre nosotros y quiere ver y oír más. Sin embargo, tenemos que decirle al público en países de la ex Unión Soviética mucho más tolerante y progresista en los medios de comunicación. Esto tiene mucha distorsión y manipulación de los medios de comunicación".

Muchos artistas son políticos o tiene miedo de expresar una posición oficial y miedo a perder fans y público. ¿Por qué es importante protestar contra Putin y su gobierno?

"No estamos protestando contra alguien o algo, pero están en proceso de creación de arte. Si miras en nuestra cartera siempre encontrarás los mensajes y metáforas. Pero no vamos a tomar una posición agresiva o extrema en esto, o en absoluto. Tenemos nuestras propias opiniones, pero la política es complicada. Nuestro arte es hacer feliz a la gente y a veces reflejan problemas de la realidad, pero en realidad no es una protesta".
 Banda Czaki (cosacos)

¿El gobierno ruso teme usted?

"Rusia es un estado soberano con un montón de temas que nos afectan, pero somos y tenemos miedo a Ucrania el destino de nuestro país. Por supuesto, derechos de los homosexuales nos preocupan mucho, pero estamos igualmente preocupados por los problemas de educación, salud, desempleo, corrupción y derechos humanos. Todos estos temas están relacionados entre sí, y estamos tratando de afectar a la totalidad.

¿Por qué participar con Roy Raz?

"Un día, Roy nos envió un mensaje, algo así como" Oye, es hora de hacer algo juntos. Vimos la obra de Roy e inmediatamente sabíamos que queríamos trabajar con él. Los clips son impresionantes. Nuestra nueva canción 'The Sun' ajusta el estilo artístico de Roy y la elección era obvia.

Israel como Rusia, es controvertido. ¿Por qué elegiste a tomar el nuevo clip es con nosotros?

"Israel es la Tierra Santa – ¿hay algo épico y más inspirador que eso? Por supuesto también hay significado alegórico en la grabación de nuestro video aquí. Roy nos encontró lugares son hermosos y no quería rechazar.

¿Cómo fue su relación con Madonna? Cómo trabajar con el clip de "Girl Gone Wild"

"Uno de los productores de Madonna recurrió a nuestros ejecutivos, probablemente nos vio en YouTube y decidió que quería trabajar con nosotros. Empezamos a ensayar para el video, fue una experiencia increíble trabajar con un equipo profesional. Y por supuesto, es un gran honor para nosotros trabajar con Madonna.

¿Después de haber trabajado con Madonna, su sueño?

"Queremos desarrollar nuestra creatividad, mejorar nuestra música, filmes e impresionantes para hacer feliz a la gente."

Aquí una foto que Artur subió con esta leyenda "Rec}}} I like it>>> part 2>> the Sun;)" como podrán ver, el siguiente video musical será de la segunda parte del album "I like it" :D

*PREMIERE* (ENGLISH VERSION by us) Interview about the new music video of Kazaky called "The Sun"

29 de noviembre de 2013 a la(s) 16:47

It was hard work translating from Hebrew to English, but here's the closest to English, a big apology but do not know who erased the last note, whatever, if somebody deleted, we just post it on our website ;) add us! https://www.facebook.com/kazakystsmx?fref=ts 

  • As sexy and provocative band... How Ukraine accept you? because it is a conservative country...

 "The first reaction of the Ukrainian public was very indecisive and there were many reviews, but I always felt the public is curious about us and want to see and hear more. Nevertheless, we have to tell the public in countries of the former Soviet Union much more tolerant and progressive in the media. This has a lot of distortion and manipulation of the media."

  • Many artists are political or afraid to express an official position and fear of losing fans and public. Why is it important to protest against Putin and his government? 

"We are not protesting against someone or something, but are in the process of creating art. If you look at our portfolio always find messages and metaphors. But we will not take an aggressive or extreme position on this, or at all. We have our own reviews, but politics is complicated. Our art is to make people happy and sometimes problems reflect reality, but in reality is not a protest." Czaki Band ( Cossacks ) 

  •  Does the Russian government fears you? 

"Russia is a sovereign state with a lot of issues that affect us, but we are and we are afraid to Ukraine the fate of our country. Course, gay rights concern us much, but we are equally concerned about the problems of education, health, unemployment, corruption and human rights . All these issues are interrelated, and are trying to affect the whole."

Why decided to work with Roy?

"One day, Roy sent a message, something like -Hey, it's time to do something together-. We saw the work of Roy and immediately knew we wanted to work with him. The clips are awesome. Our new song ' The Sun ' sets the artistic style of Roy and the choice was obvious."

  • Israel, like Russia, is controversial. Why did you choose to take the new clip with us? 

"Israel is the Holy Land - is there anything more inspiring epic that? Course there are also allegorical meaning in our video recording of Roy found here are beautiful places and we did not want to refuse..."

  • How was your relationship with Madonna? Working with the clip of "Girl Gone Wild" 

"One of the producers for Madonna turned to our executives, they probably saw on YouTube and decided he wanted to work with us. Started rehearsing for the video, it was an amazing experience to work with a professional team. And of course, it is a great honor for us to work with Madonna."

  • After having worked with Madonna, which would be your next dream? 

"We want to develop our creativity, improve our music, and impressive films to make people happy."

Remember that long ago Artur published a photo with this legend "Rec}}} I like it>>> part 2>> the Sun;)" as you can see, the following music video will be of the second part of the album "I ike it" :D
