Capturing Russia from white to black, north to south, east to west
Dmitry: Musician on Arbat

Dmitry: Musician on Arbat

MOSCOW: Old Arbat is one of the most popular streets in Moscow, with tens of thousands – if not more – strolling down the pedestrian street on any sunny weekend.

Artists and street performers bid for the crowds attention – and free change. At any time, as many as 10 musicians may be playing on this street at any one time and more than a dozen portrait drawers.

Dmitry, a teenager, is among the street musicians playing occasionally on Arbat. For the past year, he has been playing with two other people – both much older – that he met on Arbat.

He said the most memorable moment over that period was when well-known Russian musician NoiseMC stopped as he walked along Arbat to play music with him.
