From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A'Studio is a pop band originally consisting of Kazakh musicians Vladimir Mikloshich (base), Baigali Serkebayev(keyboard), Baglan Sadvakassov (solo guita), and frontman Batyrkhan Shukenov (vocal and sax). The band was created in 1982 in Almaty, then called Alma-Ata, hence called "Alma-Ata Studio". Later on the name was changed to "A-Studio". In 1989 the song "Julia" by Shukenov and Serkebayev and Mikloshich accidentally felt into Alla Pugacheva's hands. Pugacheva invited them to her annual "Christmas Meetings" 1990 and presented as the best band in the country (at that time, the USSR). The song immediately became popular across the USSR as well as the band.

Between 1994 and 1997 A-Studio released 4 albums: "Soldat lubvi" ("Love's Soldier", 1994), "A-Studio Live" (1995), "Nelubimaya" ("Not-loved", 1996) and "The Best" (1997).

In 1998 they release the new album "Greshnaya Strast'" ("Sinful passion") under the label "ORT-records".

In the year 2000 Shukenov left the band and started his solo career, while A-Studio found the new vocalist, Polina Griffith. The band releases couple of songs with her, including "S.O.S", which reached #64 on the UK Singles Chart and got popularity in Europe and the USA.

In August 2004 Polina left the band to pursue solo work. As a result, a new vocalist, Katy (Keta Topuria), originally from Tbilisi, Georgia (country) joined A-Studio. Together they release such popular song as "Uletau" ("Flying away"), "Ty" ("You"), "Noch-podruga" ("Night-friend"). "Uletau" hits the charts across the CIS, bringing the band the new season of popularity.

However, a very successful start was clouded by death of Baglan Sadvakasov. He died on 2 August 2006 in a car accident.[1]. His place in the band was taken over by his son, 17-years-old Tamerlan Sadvakassov.

Lateron, as Tamerlan left the band for studying purposes, Fedor Dossumov became the solo-guitarist of A-Studio, with whom they release the new album "905".

At different times during the late 1990's A-Studio worked with Greg Walsh, famous UK sound-producer.
