The artist of this performance group from Krasnodar City became real stars thanks to Russia’s Got Talent (Minuta Slavy) on Channel 1. They appear on radio and television, excite interest among masters and longtime experts and send a good hearted and positive message of international friendship. But above all else they present a splendid and impressive show that allows nobody to be an indifferent spectator. They sing passionately and dance lively. It is hardly too much to say that folk-group MARUSYA is the only one in the world!!! They appeared triumphantly on the same stage with ABBA, FLO RIDA, Philip Kirkorov, Sofia Rotaru, Leonid Agutin, Andrea Bocelli and many more other artists. They are recognized by the Kuban Cossack Chorus and their own song Keep The Fire Alive was performed at the Olympic Games in Sochi.
Members of the group are the coloured students from universities of Krasnodar – soon-to-be African oil-industry experts, software developers, engineers and building designers who are assumed to be so far apart from a creative work. But that’s just the cause of MARUSYA’s singularity. They entered this cultural experiment eventually after rendering the Cossack song “Marusya” at an event arranged by PARTYLAND Agency and ever since their performance of Russian songs in a highly original style became their own brand. Their creative work is free from mockery, according to opinion of Larisa Guzeeva they try to sing original songs from their hearts. According to their own story, any one of them once got a feeling in his or her heart for folk songs and thus discovered generous spirit and open mind of Russian people. It does not matter that our artists are from Cote d'Ivoire or Congo, they start to think in the Russian style and nothing matters more.
