About Tamara Ciobanu

Tamara Ciobanu was born in 1914 in the village Berezlogi from the region of Orhei.

Tamara Ciobanu was, as the coin's certificate of authenticity restates, "one of the first exponents of the Romanian song in the Republic of Moldova from the second half of the 20th century who, through her talent and vocation, through the traditional folk music, managed to bring about the rebirth of national feelings”. She sang opera also, but her greatest success was obtained as traditional folk music singer. In the countries formerly belonging to USSR, Tamara Ciobanu is also known under her Russianized name - Ceban.
