The composition of the Ivanushki International group has changed several times. Who are its participants today? You will learn about this from the article.
History of group creation
The official date of foundation of Ivanushek International is November 10, 1994. The group did not immediately receive its name. At first, the guys performed as the Soyuz-Apollo trio. The first members of the Ivanushki International group are Igor Sorin, Andrei Grigoriev-Apollonov and Kirill Andreev. At that time, their songs were not popular, and the fans did not line up in crowds in front of the entrance to the concert hall.
Six months after the formation of the trio, the sonorous name "Ivanushki International" appeared. The poet Herman Vitke helped the guys in this. He came up with only the first part of the title, and the author of the second part is the producer Igor Matvienko.
The above-mentioned composition of the group "Ivanushki International" got to work. Two years later, the trio released their debut album, titled "Of course he is". It included the songs "Ring", "Somewhere" and "Clouds", which later became hits and brought the group unprecedented popularity. These songs were played at discos all over the country.

At that time, the song "Poplar fluff" appeared in the group's repertoire, which subsequently repeatedly occupied the first line in the Russian Radio chart. At first, the fans did not want to accept Oleg, they demanded the return of Igor Sorin, who fell in love with them. But a nice and nice guy still managed to melt their hearts.
