thumbrightBulat Okudzhava Bulat Shalvovich Okudzhava (also transliterated as Boulat Okudjava/Okoudjava/Okoudzhava;, Georgian: ბულატ ოკუჯავა) (May 9, 1924 – June 12, 1997) was one of the founders of the Russian genre called "author's song" (авторская песня, avtorskaya pesnya).
In 1956, three years after the death of Stalin, Okudzhava returned to Moscow, where he worked first as an editor in the publishing house Molodaya Gvardiya ("Young Guard"), and later as the head of the poetry division at the most prominent national literary weekly in the former USSR, Literaturnaya Gazeta ("Literary Gazette").
It was then, in the middle of the 1950s, that he began to compose songs and to perform them, accompanying himself on a Russian guitar.

 Literary Encyclopedia: Bulat Okudzhava   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Bulat Okudzhava appeared on the Moscow literary scene in the late 1950s and initially became famous as a bard: in fact as a ballad singer, or “guitar poet” – or, to use the French term, a chansonnier.
Okudzhava was born in 1924 in Moscow to a Georgian father and an Armenian mother.
The most important aspect of Okudzhava’s performance as guitar-poet was his tone: soft, quiet, personal, and sometimes sad – very much in contrast to the official optimism, or the mass enthusiasm, customary to the period.

Budd Mishkin may be the only guy in Park Slope who listens to singer-songwriter Bulat Okudzhava on his morning runs through Prospect Park.
He returned to Russia in 1979, on a study abroad program while a student at the University of Pennsylvania, and returned in 1992, when he went with a Reform Jewish group to lead Passover seders at newly created synagogues.
Mishkin doesn't necessarily expect the Makor audience to have the entire Okudzhava canon at their fingertips (the venue tends to attract a young, single, English-speaking Jewish crowd), but he is diligently preparing and studying the songs on his subway ride to work in the morning.

In Kutaisi, recently stripped of its administrative status, 'Van 'Vanych's other grandad, hard-drinking Stepan Okudzhava, had begun in those long departed years to be aware in morning moments of sobriety and repentance that the world was falling apart, and to realize too that his numerous children were caught up in the destroying of it.
His much loved, sincere, bright-eyed boys and girls with their ready smiles were foretelling unimaginable blessings for all without exception, for the people who lived on their street or anywhere else in Kutaisi, for anybody who lived anywhere in Georgia, or Russia, or Africa, or America.
Meanwhile, the world war was coming to its end, and nobody considered that it had been part of God's providence.
