YouTube logoThis is my main YouTube channel. I've had it for several years. It has all of my songs and live performances, interesting reviews and blog-videos. There is also a lot of videos shot in Japan. All of the videos are mostly in English but normally have Russian and often Japanese subtitles (closed captions). This channel is definitely worth checking out and subscribing!


YouTube logoThis is my Russian YouTube channel. It's probably easy to guess that this is a Russian-speaking oriented channel. Most of the videos are in Russian. Or have open captions (hard subs) in Russian. It has, however, some unique material as well like, for example Sachi speaking Russian. So if you think you might be interested, you are more than welcome to subscribe as well.
