Event Details

Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Supper available.

As featured on ABC TV'sAustralian Story, don’t miss the debut concert tour of the choir dubbed the 'Most Handsome Russian Male Choir seen in the Southern Hemisphere'. Instant viral superstars in Mother Russia, Dustyesky will make you smile and cry for sure. 

When 28 bearded blokes from the Northern Rivers coastal community of Mullumbimby came together to share beers and sing Russian songs, something extraordinary - and frankly bizarre - happened, and Dustyesky was born. 

None of them have a connection to Russia or even speak the language, yet Dustyesky has gained global notoriety, and stardom in the motherland, for their spirited renditions of Red Army and traditional Russian folk songs. 

Performing in four-part harmonies with gusto and élan, Dustyesky has amazed crowds at Woodford Folk Festival, Mullum Music Festival, Falls Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival, and most recently WOMADelaide – becoming instant festival icons with their extraordinarily powerful voices, potent masculinity, and rustic charm. 

The Dustyesky repertoire features the unforgettableState Anthem of the Russian Federation,alongside such classics asOrchy Chornye,The Red Army is the Strongest, andKalinka, amidst lesser-known, no less breathtaking show-stoppers. 

Don't miss their Australian concert tour debut as they sing with pride, love, and respect, but not without a rich vein of humour and vitality. 

“Overwhelming sheer magnetism … lusty masculinity. Cult act? Definitely … Must-see? Indubitably” The Guardian

“As rough as a sawmiller’s beard as gentle as his touch, Dustyesky is elusive yet eternal” Anton Chekov
