The Ukrainian Susan Boyle!23 January 2010
I’ve just come across this You Tube video (thank you, Judith) of the winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent (yes, there really is such a show). She’s 24 year old Kseniya Simonova, who’s a sand artist.
She tells the story of the Second World War which killed a quarter of the Ukrainian population and in the process reduces most of the audience to tears. And she does it all in sand. It’s really quite extraordinary.
