singer Dimash Kudaibergen’s voice touches the souls of millions around the
world. Professional vocalists translate and cover his songs, while
Russian composers gladly gift him new ones.
Talented Chilean vocalist Jonathan Donoso, 32, has been
creating covers for the singer’s songs for more than a year. Donoso has been
following Kudaibergen’s work ever since he heard him sing “SOS d’un terrien en
détresse” by Gregory Lemarchal.
“When I listen to a song in a language I don’t know and
understand that I like it very much, I regard it as a kind of signal for
action. It happened with Dimash’s song “Makhabbat Ber Magan (Give Me Love).” Its
sound touched me to the depths of my soul, and I immediately went to look for a
translation. And what I read amazed me. The lyrics of the song fully reflected
all my feelings and the thoughts that I experienced during that difficult
period of time for myself. And then I firmly decided that I would definitely
cover it,” Donoso said.
Kudaibergen’s cover of “SOS d’un terrien en détresse” had a
similar effect on Italian vocalist Fabio Casale. Casale recently sung
Kudaibergen’s “Samal Tau” in Kazakh.
“Covering ‘Samal Tau’ was quite difficult, as I don’t know
Kazakh at all. I had to focus on my ear so to speak and carefully analyzed each
sentence,” Casale said.
The vocalist dreams of singing a duet with Kudaibergen and
writing a joint composition someday. Casale recently dedicated a song to the
Kazakh singer, which he called “Angelo senza confine (Angel without Borders).”
Meanwhile, famous Russian composers Igor Krutoy and Igor
Nikolayev recently announced that they wrote a song for Kudaibergen. According
to Krutoy, they already started recording a song titled “I miss you.” This is
Krutoy’s second song written for the unique voice of the Kazakh singer. Prior
to this, Krutoy gifted him a song titled “Lyubov Ustavshih Lebedei (The Love of
“For a long time, Igor (Nikolayev) and I did not compose
joint works. Here again creative phoning, editing codes, burning, déjà vu.
[I’ve got] the same [feeling] with Dimash – the choice of comfortable
modulation, mood, and as always, expectation,” Krutoy said in an instagram post.
“[The expectation] of a miracle at that moment when [one
hears] talented lyrics, music and performance from perhaps the most expected
voice in our country (Russia) and not only in our country, the voice of
Dimash.” Krutoy added.
Prior to this, Kudaibergen shortly announced upcoming
musical projects and new songs for his second album. According to the singer,
the new solo album will include new songs by famous composers, as well as his
“I feel your love and support. As a sign of gratitude,
expect surprises from me,” Dimash Kudaibergen addressed his fans in an
