Yanka Dyagileva (full name Yana Stanislavovna Dyagileva, _ru. Яна Станиславовна Дягилева) (born September 4, 1966 in Novosibirsk - died May 9(?), 1991) was a Russian poet, songwriter and singer. one of the brightest figures of Russian underground punk-rock music. She played solo and with several artists, such as Egor Letov and Velikie Oktyabri (Great Octobers) rock band. She was greatly influenced by Alexander Bashlachev, who was her friend, and Yegor Letov, her lover and mentor. Her songs are mixture of desperate punk-rock nihilism and folk-like lamentations.

On May 9, 1991, she left her home in the countryside where she lived with her family and disappeared. On May 17, she was found dead in the river Inya, probably committed suicide after long depression, although this version was never officially confirmed.

It was only after her death that her records became known to general public in Russia.
