Jeans Boys Russia’s Charming Musical Duo

Misha & Vlad
Jeans Boys (Misha & Vlad)

In June 2013 two boys from Moscow who are both fans of the video game Minecraft, met each other while playing online. With parental permission they agreed to meet in the park to roller skate together. During that real life meeting they learned that their virtual names (Karalla and Mishgun) were actually Vlad and Misha.

Even more interesting was the fact that the boys turned out to be the same age, both 10 years old and only two months apart. With the beginning of the new school year they soon learned that they were both about to enter the same grade only in different schools located in different parts of Moscow. At that first meeting they did not share the fact that they both attended music schools.  Both boys were learning to play musical instruments Vlad learning accordion while Misha taking piano lessons.


In addition to accordion lessons, Vlad is also enrolled in piano lessons, choir, and orchestra.  Vlad is described as being a lively child who is extremely active in school. He often is seated up front in his class so he will not be easily distracted.  

He is reported to be an excellent student taking his studies very seriously.  He is an early riser waking up each morning at 7:30 a.m., extremely independent, preparing his own breakfast each morning before school.

Vlad does not like tomato juice and tomatoes, but ironically loves gazpacho, a tomato based soup.  He dislikes mushrooms but is very fond of cocoa and peach juice.  Like most men he also enjoys meat and adores his Grandmother’s Russian borscht.
