English > Adaptations > Music > Russian bards > Yekaterina Asmus

Yekaterina Robertovna Asmus (°1967), born in Saint-Petersburg, is a Russian bard. By education she is a graphic artist, but she is also film director, journalist and authoress of prose, poems and songs which she performs herself, while accompanying herself on guitar.

Besides writing and singing, Asmus has a busy agenda as a promoter of diverse events such as radio programmes, exhibitions, festivals and concerts. So she fetched, for example, several famous and even notorious rock bands like Uriah Heep, Nazareth and Bloodhound Gang to Saint Petersburg between 1994 and 1998.

In August 2010, she published her Булгаковский цикл [Bulgakovsky Tsikl] or The Bulgakov Cycle, including three poems inspired by The Master and Margarita. She also made songs of them: Аннушка [Annushka], Гелла [Hella] and Улыбайся, королева [Ulybaysya, Koroleva] or Laugh, Queen.

In 2011, the poem Hella from the Bulgakov Cycle was also put into music by the young Russian bard Danila Pitersky, who used Master i Margarita as the song's title.
