Ya voz'mu sam - Latin version

Author Comments

"Ya voz'mu sam" translated from Russian would mean smth like "I will take it myself". It's about handling your own destiny, living your life by yourself, in soft philosophical metaphors.

Back in 2005 I was writing a story about school. One of the characters, Max aka Storyteller, was a bit of an outcast, mysterious intellectual dark poet sort of guy. I composed several poems for him, and one of those later seemed suiting for a song.

So I made up a vocal line, but I'm no musician, so it didn't go further than that. Later on my husband made an orchestration of it as a birthday present. So it's his song as much as mine :)

Made for "The Bipolar Contest" and will be followed by another version.

I feel bad now

I'm using this in a short film but sadly the vocal parts did not fit into it I am so sorry for being unable to include such a beautiful voice. I do love this song and wish I could have made use of it in a better way than I did.

Super Tasty!

Wow. The melody and orchestrations are sweet. Excellent quality recording and playing of the guitar. Liked the strings. Nice drum programming too! I would have liked to hear a solo in there somewhere.

P.S. A point withdrawn for a shy vocal. Sorry.

Dayosh smeshenie zhanrov :)


Hard to fault as a song but, this should be in the jazz section not Latin.

Citrina responds:

Well, it's Latin Jazz. Which makes it both Latin and Jazz :) But since there isn't much improvising, we figured it's closer to Latin...
