RGD Supported Production of the Podcast Dedicated to Pyotr Mamonov, a Legendary Russian Underground Musician and Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin and Partners law firm (RGD) released a podcast “Feeling the Northwestern Elephant”, dedicated to the life and work of Pyotr Mamonov.


The podcast is comprised of interviews and archival recordings of Pyotr Mamonov’s friends, band members, who themselves are leaders of the Soviet and Russian rock scene and underground community, including Alexander Lipnitsky, Artemy Troitsky, Vasily Shumov, Pavel Khotin and others.


‘We share the mission of the and are grateful to the team for the opportunity to take part in the production of such amazing podcasts like this one. Pyotr Mamonov, with no exaggeration, is one of the brightest cultural phenomena of the late Soviet period, who has left his trace in history as a musician, artist, poet and actor. There are very few people over 35 who are not familiar with the Sound of Moo’s music, which in my opinion is an indicator of the plasticity of one’s musical taste and versatility of cultural preferences. When it comes to Pyotr Mamonov’s talent and his distinguished performing style, there is not a single person I know who remains indifferent. What a great loss for all of us!’ – said Ilya Rybalkin, co-founder and partner at Rybalkin, Gortsunyan, Dyakin and Partners law firm.
