by Vadim Mulerman
Vadim Mulerman (1938 to 2018) was a Ukrainian popular baritone singer and artistic director. Vadim Iosifovich Mulerman was born in Kharkiv, in the then Soviet state of Ukraine, on August 18th 1938. He first studied in the vocal department of the Kharkiv Conservatory under P Golubev and V Monakhov, then later at an educational facility in Leningrad. He made his stage debut in Kharkiv in 1963, going on to work with the 'Moskonsert' and 'Roskontsert' orchestras, plus those belonging to Murad Kazhlaev, Leonid Utyosov, Anatoly Kroll and Yuri Saulsky. During the 1960s in Ukraine, he became a much-loved pop singer, though his biggest accolade during that time came in 1966, when he became a laureate of the All-Union Contest of Variety Artists with a song originally titled "Khromoy Korol'" (however, because of ideological censorship in force then, it was necessary to cut the last verse from the song and change the title to "Korol'-Pobeditel'". As well as his touring during widespread concert activity, he took part in many television programmes and was victorious in other song contests. His popularity was confirmed by such successful record releases as "Lada", "Trus ne Igrayet v Khokkey", "Kak Khorosho byt' Generalom", "Gutsulochka", "Prisnilos' Mne" and "Avgust". In 1971 though, he was barred by the USSR State Committee for Radio and Television (Gosteleradio) from appearing on television, along with several other singers of Jewish descent. During the 1991 break-up of the Soviet Union, he went to Florida in the United States to live, and became artistic director of a children's musical theatre he had set up in the Sunshine state. In 2004 however, he returned to his birth city (in the now independent Ukraine) to direct a similar project there, but later retired once more to New York City to live out his life. Among his many lifetime awards were the titles "Meritorious Artist of the RSFSR" (given to him by the Soviet Union in 1978), "People's Artist of the RSFSR" and "Merited Artist of Ukraine". Vadim Mulerman died from cancer in New York on May 2nd 2018, at the age of 79. [ Translated from: ]

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
