Medeniyet (sometimes Maya) Shahberdiyeva (February 23, 1930 – January 3, 2018) was a Turkmenistan opera singer of the Soviet era.

Shahberdiyeva was born in Atamyrat, Lebap Province, at the time known as Kerki. In her youth she learned to play the gyjak. A coloratura soprano, she graduated from the Moscow Conservatory in 1956; beginning in 1962 she received further vocal lessons in Kiev. She was a featured soloist on the roster of the Turkmen Opera and Ballet Theater from 1956; roles in her repertory included the title role in The Snow Maiden by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov; Marfa in The Tsar’s Bride, also by Rimsky-Korsakov; Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia by Gioacchino Rossini; Violetta in La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi; the title role in Lakmé by Léo Delibes; Aylar in The End of the Bloody Watershed by Veli Mukhatov; Aknabat in Night of Alarm by Aman Agadzhikov; and Shasenem in Shasenem and Gharib by Adrian Shaposhnikov. She also performed in concert. During her career Shahberdiyeva traveled abroad as well as performing domestically. She was also named a deputy to the sixth and seventh convocations of the Supreme Soviet of the Turkmen SSR. She became an instructor at the Ashgabat Institute of Arts in 1975, the same year in which she was named a People’s Artist of the USSR; she was also honored as a People’s Artist of the Turkmen SSR for her work. Shahberdiyeva has continued to receive recognition from the government of Turkmenistan since it gained its independence from the Soviet Union. She was the subject of a documentary which was shown in Ashgabat in 2008.
