Dolina started to write songs and perform them in 1971. She wrote the poetry for most of her songs, but she also has songs that set the poems of Yunna Morits to music, as well as some songs that were written in cooperation with Alexander Sukhanov. Dolina's first record was released in 1986.[1] In 1987, Dolina became a member of the Moscow drama committee. That same year, the first book with Dolina's poetry was published in Paris.

In 1987 she visited Warsaw, Poland for the first time, together with other Russian bards, giving a concert in Hybrydy concert hall, and was applauded for her interpretations. She performed several songs, including "My house is flying".
