It is unlikely that in our country there is a person who has not heard the name of this pop singer. Someone loves her work, it annoys someone, but be that as it may, Masha Rasputina, whose biography is inextricably linked with the Soviet and Russian show business, is a bright and original person. Today we will introduce you to her life and work.
It so happens that Masha Rasputina (Alla Ageeva) does not like to talk about her childhood. He does this only under the pressure of especially persistent journalists.
A future star was born in the village of Urop in the Kemerovo Region. She went to school well. When she was eighteen, she moved to Kemerovo to get a higher education. She tried herself in many professions, and six months later applied for admission to the University of Culture and Art.
At the entrance exams, she accidentally met a vocal teacher who worked at the music school in Tver. He offered her to go to his university. Masha graduated from the conducting and choral department of the music school in 1988.
Singer Masha Rasputin, whose biography was inextricably linked with the stage, in search of well-paid work immediately moved to Moscow. Due to the extremely sociable character, she managed to make connections in the capital’s music circles, and also recorded her debut hit “Play, Musician”. Before the songs of Masha Rasputina were first heard on television, the singer changed her name to a pseudonym.
In nineteen ninetieth year, Masha Rasputin, whose biography is the subject of discussion in many popular publications, began to collaborate with the great poet Leonid Derbenev. He became for the singer not only the author of his favorite songs, but also a great friend.
Work on this compilation lasted for about a year, and in 1991 the collection “City Madman” appeared on the shelves of music stores. In this work, Masha showed the range of her vocals and the depth of the songs presented, which few people expected from an aspiring singer. However, Masha’s music was especially distinguished by the particular irony inherent in the songs she performed. People’s love and tremendous popularity were brought to the songs “Circling Music” and “Himalayas”. Largely due to these two songs, the album sold out in huge circulation in Russia and in the former Soviet republics.
Masha Rasputin, whose biography is unthinkable without a scene, spent the next year on tour. In 1992, her second album appeared – “I was born in Siberia”. Derbenev still writes poems for songs, and the music is made by two very talented composers – Alexander Lukyanov and Igor Mateta.
In the house Derbeneva singer meets a Soviet pop star F. Kirkorov. This acquaintance was very fruitful. Masha Rasputina and Kirkorov became friends, often perform at national concerts, and even (which happens very rarely in show business) they sing some songs.
Over time, the singer became popular in the United States, Israel and other countries with the Russian-speaking population. The critics accepted the second album more favorably than the first. The most popular was the composition “I was born in Siberia” and “On a white Mercedes”. In the video for this song on the famous “Mercedes” appears Phillip. Masha Rasputin still works a lot with Derbenev, but at the same time she communicates with Yuri Nikulin, Lev Leshchenko, Vyacheslav Dobrynin, Vladimir Vinokur.
In 1994, the first CD of Rasputina appeared on sale – “Blue Monday”. This collection was different from the previous variety of songs – lyrical, naughty and even patriotic.
At this time, the image of the singer was finally formed – a bright, bold sexual beast in short and challenging costumes. In 1996 the next album of the singer was released – “I was on Venus”, with beautiful dance rhythms. The album included the song “Oh, Odessa”, which Masha wrote herself. This original composition, as well as the perky song “Hooligans” gained great popularity. In 1998, the fans of the singer got acquainted with one more novelty – the album “You won’t wake me”. The title song and “You fell from the moon” became especially famous. At this time, the popularity of the singer is growing. Her songs began to sound on FM radio stations that had not previously recognized her work. Photos of Masha Rasputina have become increasingly appear on the pages of glossy magazines. The singer felt the true love of their fans.

Already in August 2001, released a new CD “Kiss me with all.” In the spring of 2002, she began to appear in public. True, her appearance was not in large concert halls, but in nightclubs and casinos. The organization of these performances involved the singer’s husband, Viktor Zakharov. The fees requested by the spouses were very significant, but the owners of the establishments did not stint.
Dreams Come True
Masha always dreamed of moving to Kiev. She is in love with this city, its extraordinary architecture. The singer’s husband gave her a luxurious gift – an apartment in Kiev of approximately 500 square meters on the 21st floor. From the windows there is a magnificent view of the Pechersk Lavra, the Dnieper, the Mariinsky Park and the Square of Eternal Glory.
