Synopsis

On June 12, 1993, more than 70.000 people witnessed a historical event on the Senate Square in Helsinki.

For the first time and on the biggest stage ever seen in Finland, the rock group Leningrad Cowboys performed together with the 100 singers, 40 musicians and 20 dancers of the Alexandrov Red Army Chorus and Dance Ensemble.

The programme included rock classics from “Happy Together” to “Gimme All Your Lovin”, as well as traditional hits from the Ensembles’s own repertoire.

Tolal Balalaika Show is a documentary on the concert, an encounter of the old and the new, of East and West.
