“The main aim of my creative life is to be sure that the audience sees and feels what I want to give.The audience cry and laugh at the same time listening my songs, and enjoy a dramatic performance. I am a person of art and I breath with it. Each song has its own story. If my songs touched someone’s soul or heart and sometimes caused the sense of regret, I consider that I have reached my goal. The art must purify people”.
After graduating from St. Petersburg’s musical college, the department of piano, Elena studied at Theatrical Academy. She considers herself being musician-“I am real with music, on the stage. Yes, there is some paradox. One must be real in life and play a little on stage. But I am just the opposite– I am real on stage, but I play a little in real life.”
This is how describes herself a Russian pop singer, musician, composer, actress and the winner of Chanson of the Year Elena Vaenga.
Though Elena has mentioned for several times, that she could hardly remember dates or numbers, but surely remembers the music of her first written song at the age of 9 on the basis of Esenin lyrics. It’s hard to understand in which musical genre she composes. Most of her songs are in folk-rock, but there are also ballads, urban romances, and chanson. There are no certain borders among her composing genres.
