Umar Dimayev (Chechen: Умар Димаев) (October 1, 1908 - 1972) was a legendary Chechen accordionist and folk musician.
Meet Umar Dimayev, a virtuoso accordeon player
The highly talented musician and composer, a merited artist of the Chechen Republic Umar Dimayev has produced about thirty compositions for the accordeon and hundreds of arrangements of folk tunes.
Dimayev was born into a farmer's family, in 1908. His was a traditonally musical family. All his brothers and sisters played the accordeon and Dimayev felt grateful to his younger sister Aruzha who introduced him to the world of music and who supported him. His father took a critical view of his musical abilities  and even went so far as to hide his accordeon. He wanted his son to grow up a macho man and to do something more serious than play the accordeon. But Aruzha would give her own accordeon to her brother Umar and taught him to play this instrument. The highly talented Umar had barely turned 15 when neighbors started inviting him to play at family celebrations, including weddings, and at the bedside: they felt his music helped cure people.
A small radio station opened in Urus-Martan in 1924, and Dimayev started playing in local radio broadcasts. He was getting to be increasingly popular. Five years later, in 1929, he solo'ed with the orchestra of the National Theater. Work side by side with such a well-known composer and conductor as Alexander Ilyich Alexandrov, who led the theater orchestra, turned Dimayev's attention to composition. Some of his early creations are still played in Chechnya: "The Chechen Waltz" of the stage production "The Red Citadel," a song from "Bella" after Mikhail Lermontov and many others.
Umar Dimayev won nationwide renown. He was a soloist of the folk band of the Chechen-Ingush radio company. He won the second award of an All-Union competition of folk musicians (the first award went to Djambul Djabayev of Kazakhstan.) This is how Chechen poet Adiz Kusayev described his impressions of Dimayev's playing:
      When Umar played the accordeon,
The instrument looked like a spring rainbow...
The fingers that ran as rapidly as flame,
Touched the strings of people's souls, and not a keyboard!..
Umar was playing...He held his accordeon,
Trying to catch the sounds,
And, as a dear and trustworthy friend,
He penetrated the best-guarded nooks of people's hearts.
So he played...The sounds that floated sadly a moment ago
Next moment made people dance.
He played better than anyone,
Only he could play this way - Dimayev!
Dimayev played his best in the 50's. He composed "A Dance For Makhmoud Esambayev," "A Song of Chechen-Ukrainian Friendship," and a dancing tune called "Two Friends." He joined the efforts to form the "Veinakh" folk dance company, did what he could for the Chechen Philharmonic Society, played in TV and radio broadcasts and was engaged in a film about Mahmoud Esambayev.
Umar Dimayev's friends came from various parts of the Soviet Union. He kept in touch with composers Vano Muradeli, Isaac Dunayevsky, Andrei Eshpai and Andrei Petrov, many poets and performing singers. He was blessed with talented offspring who are carrying on his line in music. Three Dimayev boys have grown up to be professioal musicians: Said is a composer and art critic, Ali is a piano player, composer and singer, and Amarbek plays the piano and makes his own arrangements of musical compositions.
