Ifan

9Bach

9Bach’s song Ifan tells the true story of Ivan Mishukov, who left his poverty stricken home and was left to fend for himself on the streets of Moscow. Feeling the watchful eyes of the wild dogs on him, he soon learnt that if he fed them they would keep him warm in return.

Trust was gained, and after several months the dogs made Ivan, 4 years old, the pack leader. Ivan had never felt love like this.
