Laskovyi Mai (may be spelled also as Laskovyy May, Laskovy May, Laskovy Mai, Laskoviy May; Russian: Ласковый май) was a Soviet boy band from Moscow founded by Russian songwriter, composer and musician Sergei Kuznetsov. The group's best-known member was Yuri Shatunov, who has subsequently went on to some solo success. The group disbanded in 1992. Laskavyi Mai once had been called "the legends of the 80–90s".

Contents

The band has made a comeback since 2009 as a new Russian band under some changed membership of Andrei Razin, Sergey Serkov, Andrei Kucherov and Sergei Lenyuk.

Career

Laskovyi Mai was formed in the middle of the 1980s, when Sergei Kuznetsov decided to create a group of musicians with orphan children from an orphanage in Orenburg. The group's first album became legendary in the history of the Soviet pop. The style of group is a mix of Western disco pop music made on the synthesizer with plain lyrics and sung with a jazzy voice. The style of this group was revived by the group Ruki Vverh!. The group Vesyolye Rebyata was a big rival and had a big hit with "Rozovye Rozy", but could not exceed the popularity of the hit "Belye Rozy" of group Laskovyi Mai.
