Lost in Translation

While art may require an introduction, it does not need a translator.

You don’t need someone to explain the emotional impact of that which is prime, or universal. Today, on the radio, I heard an American singer interpret a Russian folk tune written by the revered Soviet-era poet and songwriter Bulat Okudzhava.

The music was bittersweet, a lament.
