Chayka [Seagull] was originally released by Vladislav Agafonov on his 1994 album Skol’ko Let, Stol’ko Zim [How Many Years, How Many Winters]. It is about being separated from the one you love, wishing you were a seagull so you could fly beyond the sea and be together, but realising that the love may not be returned, and that people can’t turn into birds. This is a beautiful rendition from Vika where she accompanies herself on electric piano. After a couple of nervous chuckles Vika launches into the song with the confidence of an experienced performer giving a vocal performance that is sweeter and more expressive than the original.
