Earlier, I had promised I would introduce some of the best ladies of our music industry (IMHO). Some got famous for talent, some for beauty, and others for both talent and beauty.
That is why, I am inviting you to check out my five favorite Russian female singers in today’s music industry!
Elka (Russian for pinetree) is a young singer at the top of her career. She became popular for her charisma, originality, and well… unbelievable vocals.
Chi-Li is a popular Russian band since 2005. The main singer and founder of the band is the redhead Irina Zabiyaka, who conquered millions of fans with her unforgettable voice and beauty.
Ani Lorak (Ани Лорак)
Karolina Kuiek, better known under her stage name Ani Lorak (the name Karolina read backwards) is a pop singer, songwriter, and actress. Lorak represented Ukraine at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Shady Lady and came 2nd. Today she’s got a successful career in Russia and is ranked as one of the most beautiful women from Eastern Europe. What are you waiting for… take a look yourself!
