Rock musician, singer and songwriter, stage and film actor

      

Pyotr Mamonov was born on April 14, 1951 in Moscow. His eccentric actor’s gift was evident since childhood: Mamonov was expelled from two secondary schools for playing tricks and performances.
In 1983 he founded the ZVUKI MU rock band, in which he always remained the only permanent member, songwriter and frontman.
The band’s first album was released by the English producer Brian Eno in London. It was followed by the tours of ZVUKI MU in Great Britain, the USA, and Europe. About 20 albums were released in Russia in the later years.
In 1992 Pavel Lungin starred Pyotr Mamonov in the groundbreaking Taxi Blues film, which became the prize-winner of the Cannes Film Festival.
In the same year the rock star created a number of play productions at the Stanislavsky Moscow Drama Theater, namely The Bald Brunette, No One Writes to the Colonel, Is There Life on Mars?, Chocolate Pushkin, Mice + Zelenenky. The absurdist bold performances took part in international festivals in Europe and America.
After many turbulent years of intense creative life Pyotr Mamonov moved with his family to Efanovo Village in the Vereysky District of the Moscow Region. In 2003 the musician was taken to hospital, nothing reported about the reasons of hospitalization. His condition was very critical: the musician endured coma and reanimation, came back to life and then was again hanging between life and death.
On November 27, 2003 Pyotr Mamonov last time appeared in his Chocolate Pushkin performance in the framework of the Russian Style program presenting creative evenings of Russian art maitres.
The  Mice, Kai and the Snow Queen (Ballet) – a new play production by Pyotr Mamonov, the SVOI Creative Association and the Slepye art group premiered in March, 2004.
Pyotr Mamonov is extraordinarily famous and popular as a film actor, with his roles in the movies Igla (The Needle) (1988), Taxi Blues (1990), The Island (2006), and The Tsar being especially memorable, vivid and outstanding.
