Kings & queen of Turbo Polka, RUSSKAJA, bring you a jolly good Christmas time! Brass and violins come together on this ska-infused Christmas classic – a unique cover version of WHAM’s smash hit “Last Christmas” – with which RUSSKAJA are guaranteed to spice up your holiday season, russki style!
With over 20 million streams on Spotify alone and relentless touring while still rocking as the house band on prestigious TV show “Willkommen Österreich” – RUSSKAJA’s Turbo Ska Punk is unstoppable!
Guitarist/Producer/Songwriter Engel Mayr says: “That Christmas song that nobody wants to hear anymore just got another twist! The Turbo Polka clash of tuba and heavy guitar is topped by Georgijs gorgeous vocals and some scream vocals by myself. I’m sure you finally got a favorite Christmas song!”

As the seven-headed band took over stages all around the world, RUSSKAJA mastered the exhausting way to the top and became an indispensable trademark for diversity! RUSSKAJA’s upbeat, powerful and amusing songs swing between countries, languages and cultures. Staying true to their cosmopolitan Austro-Soviet roots, the Austrian Ska-Legends deliver their so called “Turbopolka” – high speed, groovy Polka Ska meshed with distorted guitars and raspy Russian-German-English blended vocals that leave even the most sluggish crowds dancing along to their rhythm!
