Shooting of the second clip began in the Upper Balkaria gorge, in Kabardino-Balkaria Alla Boychenko. The video for the song “Lullaby”, as well as for the first time, is shot by director Magomed Kumykov (we previously talked about the first - and successful - Alla's video project called "Maryam").
How it all began ...
It all started with the fact that the Balkarian composer Akhmat Malkanduyev invited Alla to the staging of one of his new projects, where she had to perform the song "Lullaby", written by Omar Otarov. Thus, the author, that gave the world the song "Maryam", which became the hallmark of Boychenko.
“This composition is a Balkarian dramatic masterpiece,” the artist comments, “there are absolutely stunning words to the young mother who sings a lullaby to her child. This song is not a vocal character, revealing a powerful technical component, but a dramatic one - everything here is tied solely to the content, the most beautiful melody - simple, but soulful, in words, presented to me by the actors. That is why this project is most dear to me. ”
When the “Lullaby” performed by Alla was heard by director Magomed Kumykov, he immediately noted that it’s just impossible not to make a video for this song. In his imagination, pictures of future frames were already born, united by an idea that the singer immediately supported.
The plot is based on the story of a guy who heard “Lullaby” from his mother, being a child, and which will sound in his head even in the most terrible situations of adult life - during the battles in the Great Patriotic War.
