MOSCOW: Mitya is a long-time Rockabilly fan. He was wearing an Elvis shirt and belt buckle with blue suede shoes, which is the title of an Elvis song.
Mitya said he got into Rockabilly in the 1980s, inheriting the interest from his parents, who collected rock albums on the black market in Soviet times.
He helps organize concerts. Mitya said his daughters don’t share his interest…they prefer hip-hop and study dance at the well-known dance school Todes.
His wife isn’t a big fan either, preferring to stay home rather than join him at Rockabilly concerts, Mitya said with a laugh.
