Maria Burmaka (Ukrainian: Марія Бурмака, born June 16, 1970 in Kharkiv, Ukraine) is a Ukrainian singer, musician, and songwriter in genres of rock, pop, folk, world music.


Burmaka began singing Ukrainian songs while studying in a guitar class in a musical school. In 1987, she entered the faculty of philology of Kharkiv University of Karazin. A year later she started composing her own songs on the Ukrainian poetry. In 1989, Maria was the winner of the Sung Poetry festival in Lutsk. Then she became "silver medalist" of the Chervona Ruta festival. The "Kobza" firm released an audio-cassette with her guitar songs.

In January 1992, the Canadian record company "Yewshan" released Burmaka’s first CD album titled Maria.

Burmaka released a new album in 1998 entitled Znovu lyublyu (In Love Again). The presentation of the record was special: Burmaka invited her closest friends and the press to the 17-18th century icons hall in the National Fine Arts Museum, where an acoustic guitar concert was given. She presented her new songs accompanied by the guitar only.
