Alexander Rybak: “Sound Track Awards” for me is an exotic musical attraction”
The results of the annual award “Sound Track”
Ceremony “ZD Awards 2011”, one of the musical highlights of the season, was held on January 27 at the concert hall of the hotel “Cosmos” in a festive, solemn and joyful atmosphere, as it has been a custom for many years.
