Kola Beldy

Kola Beldy (Russian: Кола́ Бельды́) (2 May 1929 – 21 December 1993) was a Soviet pop singer of Nanai ethnicity. In 1986 he was awarded the title of Meritorious Artist of the RSFSR. He had a number of Soviet-era hits, most famously "Увезу тебя я в тундру" (I will take you to the tundra). He was signed to Melodiya Moscow, in 1973 winning them Award no. 2 at the Sopot International Song Festival. According to musicologist and rock critic Artemy Troitsky he "scored with some tundra-orientated megahits in the seventies and is considered a hallmark of Soviet snow-opera kitsch".
