She has played acoustic guitar and written her own music for at least 13 years, but only for a few months has she practiced with electronic beats and backtracks. Now she has combined the two and setting her ways onto those acoustic/electronic landscapes.

"Soviet Hippies" is a wild flower power ride on the footprints of the Soviet hippie movement. It takes you into the psychedelic underground of 1970s. Thrilled by rock music, inspired by the cult of peace and love, the young long-haired drop-outs craved for freedom and created their own System in the Soviet Union despite the strict regime.

The film has English and Russian subtitles.
