Leanid Arturavich Zeydel-Volski (Belarusian: Леанід Арту́равіч Зэйдэль-Во́льскі; born on 14 September 1965 in Minsk), better known as Lavon Volski (Belarusian: Ляво́н Во́льскі, pronounced [lʲaˈvon ˈvolʲskʲi]), is a Belarusian musician, writer, painter, and founder of the Belarusian rockgroups Mroja, N.R.M., Zet, and Krambambula.
He is the son of Artur Volski, who is a known Belarusian writer, and Russian poetess Svetlana Evseyeva. He studied at Minsk Art College.

He was a vocalist and a keyboard player of the Belarusian Rock-band Mroja. He wrote lyrics for ULIS, album Pa-nad dachami (1995) and was guitar player and the vocalist of Novaje Nieba. Now he is the rhythm guitar player and the vocalist of N.R.M., Zet and Krambambula. In 2008 he has also started a solo career and has released a first album called "Bielaja jablynia hromu" in March 2010. For the Belarusian speaking radioprogramme Radio Svaboda he writes sharp-ironical Cabaret-styled songs about political and social topics. In 2014 he released a solo album "Social Science circular reference]" - an author's view of the problems of modern Belarusian society. This album was recorded at the studio "Ymir Audio" in Vilnius. The musical part of "Social Science" was arranged together with Norwegian musician multi-instrumentalist and sound producer Snorre Bergerud.
On the New Year 2019 he acted and directed the musical show “We will be not understood in Moscow” (Belarusian: «Нас у Маскве не зразумеюць») by Tuzin.fm, “Belsat Music Live”, and himself.


He wrote two books of poetry: Kalidor (1993) and Fotaalbom (2000) and writes for Nasha Niva and the Teksty magazine. His story "The new flat of Kazimir" was included in the collection of prose works "Pavietrany Šar" from the Nasha Niva Library.
