Lady Trololo: The Female Eduard Khil

This is not quite as bizarrely infectious as Eduard Khil’s uber-meme “Trololo” but it has its moments.

The singer is French-born Russian superstar Edita Piekha. The video is from 1964.

Piekha is regarded as one of Russia’s first rock and rollers. She did stuff on stage that had been heretofore forbidden…like dancing the Twist. A Russian riot grrrl.

Via Dangerous Minds. Revisit the original Mr. Trololo here.
