Yanka Kupala — was the pen name of Ivan Daminikavich Lutsevich, a Belarusian poet and writer. Kupala is considered one of the greatest Belarusian-language writers of the 20th century.
Kupala was born on July 7, 1882 in Viazynka, a folwark settlement near Maladzyechna. His family was of Szlachta origins. Kupala received a traditional Belarusian education, completing his studies in 1898.
Kupala's first serious literary attempt was "Ziarno", a Polish-language sentimental poem which he completed around 1903-1904 under the pseudonym "K-a." His first Belarusian-language work ("Мая доля") was dated July 15, 1904. Kupala's first published poem, "Мужык" ("Peasant"), was published approximately a year later, appearing in Belarusian in the Russophone Belarusian newspaper "Severo-Zapadnyi Krai" (Northwestern Krai) on 11 May 1905. A number of subsequent poems by Kupala appeared in the Belarusian-language newspaper "Nasha Niva" from 1906 to 1907.
He died after falling down a flight of stairs in Moscow (1942); some speculate that he was actually murdered. His widow helped to establish a literary museum in Belarus.
I will pray with the heart and thoughts
I will pray with my soul
For the black problems, and a blizzard
Never wailed over my native land.

This is a very touching song about Christmas. It tells the story about the ancient Belarusian town of Kreva, about beloved woman - she knocked snow boots and did not notice how late evening came and the snow again pours from the sky. And Christmas is coming. Snow going and going, and there is no way to go home. Women need to fly across the sky. From snowflakes to snowflakes, From Christmas trees to Christmas trees - into the arms of the man she loved.
In the video you will see a cute cat who lives in the ancient Belarusian town. You will see the modern realities of Belarus - the people standing in line at the bank))) You'll see a nice clip, which has just been created.

What music is playing in the Belarusian radio? Well, we have a rule: 75% of the music should belong to the Belarusian performers and only 25% of the content may be owned by foreign artists. Also, mostly FM stations broadcast in Russian, to my sorrow.
