Фрик-кабаре -- I did not know of this genre before.

Zhenya says there is a revolution in Ukraine, and her mom is protesting in the streets.    

Here is freak cabaret band Dakh Daughters:

The lyrics of "Rozy / Donbass” begin as follows (it's Shakespeare):

No more be grieved at that

which thou hast done:

Roses have thorns

and silver fountains mud,

Clouds and eclipses stain

both moon and sun,

And loathsome canker

lives in sweetest bud.

“Don-bass!” means Donbass,

"Rozy" means roses.

Somewhat more retro--here is a so-called "Devushka bez complexov"

I've seen the phrase "bez complexov" translated as "easy virtue."

But that's not right.

"bez complexov" just means "no hangups"
