Biography Peter Nalitch
Peter Andreyevich Nalitch (Russian: Петр Андре́евич На́лич, also spelled as Petr Nalich or Pyotr Nalich; born 30 April 1981, Moscow, Russian SFSR) is a Russian singer and composer. Nalitch represented Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Oslo on May 29. His song received 11th place (the song "Lost and Forgotten").
Peter Nalitch was born in a Russian family. His grandfather Zahid Nalić was a Bosnian opera singer from Tuzla, hence the Balkanic surname. Peter graduated from the Moscow University of Architecture (MARHI) and studied music at Orfei Studio directed by Irina Mukhina. He has worked for two years as an architect. He has a son from the first marriage and a daughter from the second.
Peter Nalitch has become famous in Russia after the publication in 2007 on YouTube of the clip of his song "Gitar" (where he makes fun of himself with broken English lyrics and dubious film editing qualities). In about a 3 years, more than 4,000,000 people had already watched it. After that, interviews and articles were made about Peter in some Russian papers. The song "Gitar" is most popular in Germany but also in Slovakia and Valaska.
In 2007, Peter had already about 40 songs written down, all available on his website for free. It is with these songs that Peter gave his first concert, on November 9, 2007, in the club "Apshu" ("Апшу") in Moscow. Peter then gathered a band of musicians, with whom he gave two more concerts during the winter of 2008 in the club "IKRA" ("Икра"), in Moscow. Tickets had been sold out several months before the event.
The band took the name Peter Nalitch's musical collective - "Muzykalny kollektiv Petra Nalitcha" or more simply "MKPN" ("МКПН").
During the following two years, in addition to the Muscovite venues, MKPN went on a tour, performing in Saint Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod and in other big Russian cities.
Nalitch is self-produced.
Peter Nalitch sings in Russian, in English (with a Russian accent, because he refuses to pretend to speak proper English and to hide his accent), but also in Italian ("Santa Lucia"), in French ("Il pleut toujours", on the EP "More") and in Baburi, an invented language.
The lyrics of his songs are often humorous and can sometimes be compared to child songs ("Yeti" - 'Йети', is a song about a lonely yeti). MKPN also did covers of Russian romances and Cossack songs.
They make money not from selling music but from their concerts.
