His pseudonym comes from Vladimir Korolenko, Russian writer (1853—1921), whose works are subject of Pavel’s research.
Psoy performs his own and others’ songs, accompanying himself to keyboard instruments, mainly a Casio sequencer in accordion timbre. Experimenting with quite various song traditions he sings in about 6 or 7 languages, most frequently in Russian, Yiddish, English and French.
Korolenko’s perhaps most known song is Buratino, which is just a repetition of the same phrase many times, aimed to poke fun at modern rap and trance music. The ‘song’ has been done several times, and a multitude of remixes have been made out of it.
Psoy has toured many places. He has had concerts in many states, Berlin, London, and more. His music is popular both with adults, and Russian teenagers. He rewrites many songs, and also has translated some songs from Russian to Yiddish.
