Maks Korzh – phenomenon of Belorussian show business

Max Korzh is a young musician from Minsk, a native of the MU SKOOL gang, who easily mixes electronic music, rap and intimate singing in his work. It is so popular and interesting to its audience precisely because of the simplicity of the presentation and the sincerity of the texts. And his brand is to be closer to the listener, so that everyone can find something similar, could relate his life to songs. It is also surprising how the Max Korzh concerts take place, the incredible atmosphere and the feeling that you are part of something big.


Max started, like many young men, from social rap, moreover, in Belarusian, but soon enough realized that his talent was different. In that he can convey a whole range of feelings and thoughts that are close to many with simple and precise phrases. And do it in a beautiful, hit form.

The story of Max’s takeoff is incredibly rapid and is going on right before our eyes. In May of 2012, he released the first solo album in Belarus, and a year later he gathered thousands of rooms. His demand for concert promoters became fussy, he performed twice in the “Evening Urgant” program on Channel One, and the presentation of his second album “Live in a high” again broke records — for example, in the capital of Belarus it took place in the 15,000th Minsk Arena. Also, this album was the best album of 2013 on the version of the channel Muz-Tv.


2016 was another peak in the history of Max. The video “Boy’s Word” became a real event, and at the end of the year, to a loud presentation, a new album “Boy grew up” was released, which demonstrated that the artist really matured, but did not lose any of the merits of his stormy youth.


At the beginning of 2017, the soundtrack to the Russian blockbuster “Attraction” came out with the track “Max Endorfin”. Then Max went on an exotic tour of Iran, and after it – on a tour of the United States. In the summer it became known that entry into Ukraine, unfairly banned to Max in 2016, was canceled by a court decision.


In October 2017, the singer presented his fifth studio album, “Boy grew up”Part 2, which continued the theme of the first part. This is a record about eternal youth – it contains songs about love, friends and Minsk. It includes only 7 tracks, but which ones. Among them, “Drunk Rain”, “Optimist” and “Crimson Sunset” – and for 8 months it has not left the top 5 releases of the Russian iTunes.

The presentations in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kiev and Minsk were a great success: we had to appoint three additional concerts, and in total they were attended by about 40,000 people. On August 4, he gave a concert in Odessa, and this was the bright return of Max Korzh to Ukraine. Fans from all over the country gathered at his performance, he managed to assemble the “Spartak” stadium, according to some sources, 25 thousand Ukrainians were  there. Why is this so important? – This is the biggest stadium concert of one performer in 2018, considering that it was not even held in the capital. And a simple Belarusian guy gathered this stadium together.


Everything did not end with the Slavic countries, the big tour even extended to North America, he managed to hold as many as 4 concerts in Los Angeles and San Francisco, New York and Toronto (Canada). They ended with great success, it is surprising how many people came to listen to Max, most of whom do not understand Russian, but were able to appreciate the atmosphere of the concert and wonder how frantic fans can be.
