Early lifeEdit

Dinmukhamed ("Dimash") Kanatuly Kudaibergen was born on 24 May 1994 in Aktobe, to Kanat Kudaibergenuly Aitbayev (Kazakh: Қанат Құдайбергенұлы Айтбаев) and Svetlana Aitbayeva (Kazakh: Светлана Айтбаева).[17][18] His father Kanat Aitbayev previously led the regional Cultural Development Board of Aktobe.[19] His mother Svetlana Aitbayeva is a soprano singer at the Aktobe Philharmonic Society,[20] a Member of the Standing Committee on Social and Cultural Development (Deputy of Maslikhat of Aktobe region) and Artistic Director of the children's studio Saz in the Aktobe region.[21] Both of Kudaibergen's parents were awarded the title of Honored Music Artists by the Kazakh government.[18] Kudaibergen has a younger sister, Raushan, and a younger brother, Mansur.

Kudaibergen was brought up in a close-knit musical family, and his grandparents, who lived together with him and his parents, played a major role in his upbringing, which follows traditional Kazakh custom.[22][23] His grandmother, Miua Nizamutdinova, is a retired teacher of Geography and Biology, also sang when she was younger.[24] His grandfather, Kudaibergen Aitbayev, is a dombra player.[5] Kudaibergen's parents emphasized the importance of speaking the Kazakh language well and of playing traditional musical instruments such as the dombra.[18] Growing up in this musical and cultural environment, he was fascinated with music from a young age. Kudaibergen's parents regularly performed in concerts, and his grandparents took him to watch. His mother later recalled: "Dimash has always loved the stage. I remember [...] at the end of the performance before we thanked the audience, Dimash [would] run up from where he was sitting in the audience with his grandparents to the stage and be with us to bow and say thanks."

Kudaibergen began performing at a young age, singing and playing the piano at various venues and contests throughout his childhood. His first appearance on the stage, as a performer, was at the age of two in a minor role in a local theatre production. At home Kudaibergen took an interest in musical instruments, and his parents noticed that he had absolute pitch.[18] At the age of five, he began to take piano and vocal lessons at the children's studio of the local music college whilst being accompanied by his grandmother, Miua.[25] Kudaibergen first sang on stage the same year, at the age of five.[17] He has expressed gratitude to his first teachers, and to his grandmother, who took him to his lessons daily despite her leg pain.[26] At the age of six, in 2000, he won the national piano contest Aynalayin.[27]

As a young child, Kudaibergen dreamed of singing on a large stage. His childhood play and drawings were based on cassettes, microphones, stages, and himself singing on stage[28] At the age of ten, he was the host at various local events.[17] At school his teachers noticed that he was self-driven; he studied the works of great Kazakh poets and writers, making their verses into songs and singing them. He also wrote poetry himself, and arranged music. As a teenager Kudaibergen was also engaged in Taekwondo and swimming. Kudaibergen's mother recalled that he practiced hard to have a wide vocal range and never missed classes in the vocal studio even when he was injured.[26] She attributes his ability to hold his breath for long periods of time to regular swim training since childhood.[20]

EducationEdit

At the age of five, Kudaibergen began to take piano and vocal lessons at the children's studio of Aktobe's Akhmet Zhubanov Music College.[29][30] He later attended Gymnasium No. 32 in Aktobe.[31] Kudaibergen completed a Broadway Musical master class in 2009.[32] In 2014 he graduated in Classical Music from the music department of K. Zhubanov University in Aktobe[33] and began his studies in contemporary music (Jazz, Pop) at Kazakh National University of Arts in Astana where he graduated on 27 June 2018 with Major in Vocal.[34] He is currently taking his Masters in Composing, with the University.[35]

Kudaibergen speaks Kazakh and Russian, and is studying English and Mandarin.

Kudaibergen continued to perform in public, including at a concert held for Teacher's Day. His grandparents moved to Astana to support him with his performances. His grandmother said: "We often have to squeeze his wet shirts, because he completely surrenders himself to every song on the stage. We moved to Astana to prepare his concert costumes, to cook his food in time." [20] On 30 December 2014, Kudaibergen was awarded a laureate of the State Youth Prize Daryn.[38]

Within the frame of the Shanghai Pet Adoption Day 2019, he became a supporter of the "Love is Home" initiative that aims to improve awareness and to increase adoptions of stray animals.[246]

On his 25th birthday he visited a nursing home for the elderly and the physically impaired in his hometown Aktobe. As it is customary for him on his birthday since his school days, he brought gifts and spent time with the residents. He also performed for them a cappella.[247]

A few days before his "Arnau" Concert of 29 June 2019, in Astana, Kazakhstan, there were explosions[248] near the Kazakhstan city of Arys that caused injuries and casualties. Kudaibergen decided to donate funds from his concert to the victims.[249]
