Buranovskiye Babushki are a group of "grannies" from Udmurtia, a republic between the Kama and Vyatka rivers in Russia. In March, they won the Russian national final against several stars including the former Eurovision winner Dima Bilan, and now they will try to conquer Europe with their unique style.

Buranovskiye Babushki („Buranovo Grannies“) is a folk group from the village of Buranovo in Malopurginsky area in the Udmurt Republic, Russian Federation. The eldest member of the group is 76 years old, 77 in the autumn.

Buranovskiye Babushki became known in 2008, when a television report about them was shown in the news programme of the television channel “Russia”. They have been covering Russian and Western popular songs by Aquarium, Kino, The Beatles, Queen, and Shocking Blue. These covers were sung in Udmurt, citing folk music influences.

Later Buranovskiye Babushki came surprisingly third in the Russian Eurovision qualifying contest in 2010. Afterwards they took part in a large number of television shows and concerts including a special performance at the open air festival “Rock above Volga” with more than 200,000 fans. They performed on the same stage with Jose Carreras and Emir Kusturica, and toured through Estonia and France.

Lyrics of Party For Everybody

Ӝӧккышет тӧдьы вӧлдӥсько, пиосме возьмасько. Котэм нянь буй-буй ик будэ, сюлэмы небӟе. Party for everybody! Dance! Come on and dance! Come on and dance! Come on and… Boom! Boom! Корка тыр ик нылпиосы, бертӥзы мусоосы. Корка тыр ик нылпиосы, бертӥзы мусоосы. Вож дэремме дӥсяло но, тӧдь кышетме мон кертто, Вож дэремме дӥсяло но, эктыны пото. Кырӟалом жон-жон-жон, Эктом ми куаж-куаж али. Кырӟалом жон-жон-жон Ваньмы ӵошен. Party for everybody! Dance! Come on and dance! Come on and dance! Come on and … Party for everybody! Dance! Come on and dance! Come on and dance! Come on and… Boom! Boom! Коӵыше но шумпотэ но, пуные но шумпотэ. Коӵыше но шумпотэ но, пуные но шумпотэ. Мылы-кыды капчия но, шумпотонэн пачылме, Мылы-кыды капчия но, шумпотонэ но. Кырӟалом жон-жон-жон, Эктом ми куаж-куаж али. Кырӟалом жон-жон-жон Ваньмы ӵошен. Party for everybody! Dance! Come on and dance! Come on and dance! Come on and … Party for everybody! Dance! Come on and dance! Come on and dance! Come on and… Boom! Boom! Party for everybody! Dance! Come on and dance! Come on and dance! Come on and … Party for everybody! Dance! Come on and dance! Come on and dance! Come on and… Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Dance!
