The main girls rockers of Russia - a complete list, photos and names, influence
Russian rock - this is, for the most part, beautiful, unusually soulful music (remember the same "Autumn" of the DDT group). Usually, Russian rock legends began to call exclusively men, namely such bright and influential stars as Viktor Tsoi, Yuri Shevchuk, Boris Grebenshchikov and so on… However, this is not entirely fair. The history of Russian rock also remembers the names of women who, by the way, had a great influence on the further development of the genre and on modern music in general! And yes: this may surprise and even outrage you, but it is precisely Alla Borisovna Pugacheva played an important role in the formation of Russian rock ... And Olga Kormukhina, in turn, started with jazz. Actually - about everything in order. So: this is the top most important girls in the history of Russian rock! We begin…
Without this well-known representative of the Russian rock scene, more than one such list is impossible ... Zemfira has long become the personification of "female rock", as well as the idol of millions ... She loudly declared herself at the end 90s with your group Zemfiraand has managed to maintain its popularity to this day.
Zemfira really deserves a place on our list, as she had a great influence on both the Russian rock scene and modern music in general (does it need to be said that she inspired hundreds of her followers ...?) It is worth noting that the singer has always adhered to her principles and had her own opinion, which made it difficult for the producers to work with her. But apparently - her opinion was always true!
Group "Quarter" combined elements in her work jazz, soul, funk and world musicwhich, in fact, has gained popularity. And she has been and remains a constant member of this Moscow rock band to this day. Tatiana Litvinenko - Vocalist and songwriter.
Thanks to the unique style and manner of performance Tatiana Litvinenko deserves a place on our list. This woman has had a great influence on many modern performers, and this is an iron fact.
Along with Zemfira, this rock star has become the idol of millions, and her old hits continue to be actively played on the radio to this day ... Legend of the Night Snipers, today Diana Arbenina is one of the most famous women on the Russian rock scene! She is still actively touring and releasing new tracks ...
Arbenina's rich discography includes several dozen albums, which once again proves her dedication to her work...
Big hit performer "Tu-lu-la", Yulia Chicherina known as a Russian rock singer, songwriter, and also the leader of her own group. Chicherina really had a great influence on modern Russian rock, breaking the line between pop and rock music...
The legend of the Soviet and Russian rock scene, and in particular the outrageous vocalist of the group "Bravo", Zhanna Aguzarova was a kind of Russian "Bowie": bright, charismatic, with excellent vocal abilities ... She had a great influence on many of her contemporaries and followers!
After "Bravo" Zhanna Khasanovna built a successful solo career. Very often in her interviews, the artist declared (and continues to declare to this day) about her extraterrestrial origin and "internal connections" with the Martians ... For her vivid images and unique clothing style, Aguzarova received the title "Goddess of Outrageous".
Olga Kormukhina is one of the most talented and beloved singers on the Russian rock scene! It is noteworthy, however, Kormukhina began her journey not at all with rock, but with jazz ... In 1983 year, the future star arrived in the capital, where she entered the Gnessin State Pedagogical Institute, and already in 1987 year became a member "Red Panther". Actually, thanks to this group Olga Borisovna and rose to prominence as a rock performer…
Today Olga Kormukhina is an Honored Artist of Russia!
Olga Pershina - Soviet and Russian folk-rock singer, poetess and writer. Pershina was actively involved in rock at the beginning 70s, and yes: she took part in the recording of the album "Triangle" of the "Aquarium" group (in particular - Pershina wrote the music for the song "Two tractor drivers")!
It is noteworthy, but it was Pershina who supported in 1976 year the idea to organize concerts in honor of the birthday of each of the participants The Beatles!
Perhaps today only a few will remember this beautiful and mysterious (since there is practically no information about her on the Internet) ... However - Natalia Borjomova was the vocalist of the group "Night Avenue", one of the first industrial projects in Soviet Union! And not just a vocalist (of which there are a great many), but a talented rock performer ...
Soviet and Russian rock singer, songwriter, and leader of a rock band "Nastya" - Poleva quickly captivated the audience with her original and surprisingly strong vocals ... It is worth adding that the voice Nastya Polevoy became the first female voice on the rock scene of the era 80s!
Your way Yana Diaghileva she started mainly with apartment concerts, where she performed songs of her own composition with a guitar ... Soviet rock singer, singer-songwriter, member of punk rock groups "Civil Defense", "Great October" and others - she was one of the brightest representatives of the Siberian underground of the late 1980s. Unfortunately in May 1991 she was gone for a year...
Now let's move on to the question of how Alla Pugacheva influenced Russian rock…
It so happened that Alla Borisovna unconditionally reigns on the Russian music scene for a long time. No wonder she bears the title "Diva"! Of course, none of the listeners perceive and never perceived it in the context of Russian rock. And in vain ...
It was Pugacheva who was one of the few who seriously paid attention to Russian rock when it first came into fashion (and this happened in the 80s). She organized a charity concert "Account 904"at which "Bravo", "Cruise", "Autograph" and "Recital". She helped the group "Nautilus Pompilius" in the recording of the album "Prince of Silence" (Alla Borisovna also performed backing vocals in the song "Doctor of your body").
And it was she who helped the Leningrad rock club, which, in those years, it was really hard to exist (rock at that time was a kind of mainstream, inspired by the West ...) Needless to say, "Primadonna" was directly involved in the fate of the above mentioned Zhanna Aguzarova? So - Pugacheva is really very closely connected with our rock, and it would be a gross mistake not to mention her in the list of the most important girls in the history of Russian rock.
