Biography Gulkina Natalya
Gulkina Natalya Valeryevna was born on February, 1964 in Moscow. In childhood she studied diligently, sang in every possible coteries.
She tried to enter musical school, but failed at the first examination due to the absence of support. One year later she tried again and began to sing in jazz studio where in February, 1987 was noticed by composer Andrei Litjagin. He searched for soloists for the new project 'Mirage'. In March the first album was written down the album 'Electricity', 'Magic world', 'I will depart to solar summer', 'I do not want to miss and leave ' and also 'Mad world'.
In summer 1988 Gulkina left the band due to financial disagreements. Andrei Razin has persuaded Natasha to work together.
In the same year the composer Leonid Velichkovsky suggested her to write down a solo album. Natasha wrote the texts, Leonid - music. In January, 1989 they released the first album 'My small prince'. The new band was named 'Zvyezdi'.
At first 'Zvyezdi' lip-synched, but gradually they turned to 'live' performances (18 concerts to 6 Chinese largest cities were first 'live' performances).
But in 1992 the band name disappeared from posters.
In 1993 Natalya acted with concerts in Germany for Russian-speaking audience and creates musical center at the Moscow house of children's creativity ' Constellation ' where children are engaged in vocal and modern choreography. Natalia Gulkina wrote verses and texts for songs, as well as for the band 'the SHERIFF ' and I.Saltykova. From 1994 she worked with show ballet ' the Street-jazz'.
But soon Natalia Gulkina unexpectedly disappeared from the scene. Changes in private life, new love, search of money for the next album - all it proceeded until 1995. At last problems were solved, and Gulkina released the disk "Dancing city".
The album is executed in style of electro pop, critics marked very fashionable sound of the album and academic manner of singing. At two concerts in the Moscow palace of youth in December Natalia showed also her new linguistic knowledge - in a song "China' sang in Chinese, and in "Rio de Janeiro" - "almost in Spanish". But new experiments in fashionable youth styles didn't bring commercial success.
After that Natalia started to work in studio and dropped out of sight of music fans.
In 2004 Natalia decides to get acquainted with Margarita Sukhankina (the first vocalist of "MIRAG" band) and offered her a new project. In 2005 they released the album "Simply mirage".
She graduated the Russian academy of theatrical art on Andrei Nikolaev's course.
Private life (interview)
- What kind of men did little Natasha like?
- Blondes with blue eyes. Later tastes changed. Now brunettes are more pleasant to me.
- Do you remember your first love?
- It was one of the brightest events in my life. I have fallen in love for the first time, when I was 15 years old. Such mad love it was! His name was Sergey. I have always been pursued by men with this name. But this history had a sad end. I didn't wait him from the army and married in a hurry before his return.
- Why did you divorce for the first time?
- I married Nicolai Gulkin, and a year later we had a child. At this time I began to reflect, whether my choice was correct. I think I married him simply to put on a wedding dress and a veil. Though, of course, I loved him.
- And what about the second marriage?
- It was like in films. I sat down in the car, turned my head and met his eyes, and I understood - I was caught. Kostja Terentyev manipulated me as he wanted. I lost nearly everything what have earned by that moment.
- And what was after the divorce?
- There was new love. You know, number 4 has a magic value in my life. Four years I have lived with one husband, four years - with the second, with the third - 8 years. And everything is balanced in my life. I left two first husbands myself. The final decision was made by me. And the third husband left me with one-and-a-half-year-old Janochka on hands.
- Was the acquaintance with the present spouse romantic?
- Oh! Really! My daughter fell ill, and friends advised me to address paid service. I called. Sergey arrived. Yana, my daughter is a very quiet child, and here she suddenly spat him in the face. I was stunned. And Serezha absolutely easily reacted, he was used to behavior of rich kids. You know, in the course of time you understand that the main things in human relations are care, mutual assistance, understanding.
