Project Work Zemfira Zemfira Prepared by Podvigina Natasha Form 11 B Davydovskaya School
Zemfira Talgatovna Ramazanova ( Земфира Талгатовна Рамазанова, born 26 August 1976 in Ufa) is the leader and lead vocalist of the Russian rock band "Zemfira". The group was formed in 1998 and has been popular in Russia and other former Soviet republics
At the age of 4, Zemfira became interested in music, entering a music school the following year (where she studied piano performance and voice) and writing her first song when she was seven years old. She began to lose interest in classical music, preferring instead to hang out with friends in the streets of Ufa and covering songs by Russian rock groups
She graduated with honors, and in 1996 took a job as a sound engineer at the Ufa subsidiary of the radio station "Europe Plus" Zemfira spent her days making advertisement recordings at the station and her nights on a computer, where she recorded the songs that would become singles: "Why" (Почему), "Snow" (Снег), "Weatherman" (Синоптик). In early 1998 Zemfira invited Rinat Akhmadiyev, Sergei Sozinov, Sergei Mirolyubov, and Vadim Solovyov to join "Zemfira".
The group enjoyed immense popularity from the start, in part because of heavy rotation on radio and television, and in part because a female rocker is a fairly rare and unusual concept for the Russian music scene (which to this day is dominated by scantily-clad female pop singers).
After the release of "PMML" (Russian abbreviation for "Forgive Me My Love") in March 2000, what can only be described as Zemfiromania swept the country. "Searching" (Искала) and "Ripe" (Созрела) became instant hits, and the group was invited to headline the festival MAXIDROM.
In May and June 2007 Zemfira embarked on a short concert tour titled «Déjà Vu». A new album, "Thank You" (Спасибо), was released at the beginning of October.
Sometimes moody, self-assured, enigmatic and flamboyant, Zemfira has found herself an object of constant obsession by the Russian media and paparazzi. She added to the furor by limiting her contact with the media after an initial avalanche of invasive and libelous publicity.
