Two Russian artists are the first in a string of artists worldwide to create their own version of “Toast To Freedom”. Many more will be joining in over the course of the next few months to make their personal contribution in support of Amnesty International. It wasn’t difficult for Boris Barabanov, music writer for Russian newspaper “Kommersant”, to convince Russian rapper Basta (Vasily Vakulenko) to create an all-new lyrics version of “Toast to Freedom”, called “Svoboda”. Within days, the song reached more than 300.000 views on YouTube and will soon be available on iTunes.
