About S. Vakarchuk
Svyatoslav Vakarchuk (Ukrainian: Святослав Іванович Вакарчук; born May 14, 1975, Mukachevo, in the Ukrainian SSR of the Soviet Union – in present-day Ukraine) is the lead vocalist of Okean Elzy, the most successful post-Soviet rock band in Ukraine. He is the son of Ivan Vakarchuk, a professor of physics at Lviv University and the present Minister of Education and Science in Ukraine. He was active in supporting the Orange Revolution, and is involved in many social and cultural projects. He is one of the most successful musicians in Ukraine and has a degree in theoretical physics. By the year 2009, he had released six (6) studio albums together with his band Okean Elzy: * Tam, de nas nema (There, where we aren't, 1998), * Yananebibuv (I was in heaven, 2000), * Model (2001), * Supersymetriya (Supersymmetry, 2003), * GLORIA (2005), * Mira (Measure, 2007), and also one (1) acoustic album Tviy format (Your format, 2003). The Ukrainian magazine Korrespondent ranks him as one of the 100 most influential people of Ukraine (in 2008 ranked 55). In the early parliamentary elections on September 30, 2007 he appeared as an independent candidate on the Our Ukraine–People's Self-Defense Bloc's list (as nr 15). In the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian parliament) he was a member of the parliamentary committee for freedom of speech questions. In early September 2008 he renounced his seat in the Verkhovna Rada due to the political situation. In 2008 Svyatoslav Vakarchuk released a solo project "Vnochi" (In the Night). This album was released under the name of Svyatoslav Vakarchuk, but it includes appearances by all members of "Okean Elzy" and other various guest musicians.
