Heroes of spaceflight.
Conquerors of the cosmos.
Pride of all Nations!

Since 2006 the Cosmonautix are on a “Rocket Balalaika Speedfolk” mission, a wild mix of eastern European folklore and own songs in Russian and English language. Moderately enriched with influences of Rock, Ska and Klezmer the party cosmonauts are today the most energetic Russian party band outside of Mother Russia. After the success of their debut album ENERGIJA (2011, Piranha Records) the crew drifted across a lot of countries in Europe, Russia and Mexico.

Also the youngest release, the maxi single GYPSYNAUT (2014, Setalight Records), shows in round terms the direction of the flight: of course up to the cosmos! Together with an international crew, the Cosmonautix commander Captain Morgan Nickolay
(Dawai Dawai / Baikal Cossacks), takes his audience to an excessive flight up to the cosmos…
in this spirit: “Take a seat now and fasten your seatbelt, please!”

“It may still be cold outside; however,
Cosmonautix defrosts even the deep-frozen
dance legs with your hot “Russian Balalaika Speedfolk”.”

“Punk strikes Casatschok:
The Cosmonautix brings the Junction Bar to a
boil with Russian-Balalaika-

“Spin the songs through the punk wolf and
make it loud and fast. And don’t forget the

“The Russian-Balalaika-Speed-Folker clears the intransigence from your internet
sites to the 
direction in which your music is arranged. Fast and crazy,
but a great gag always makes it 
feel like a musically social dance night.”
Jalla Music

“Punk, Ska, and Klezmer become acquainted,
upon which you can naturally dance and chant 
like anyone.
So it becomes a proper party, that goes crazy.”

is above all LIVE-MUSIC.”
