Russian born, I am a professional actress, a singer and a composer. I live in Amsterdam since 1992.
I write music for theatre shows and films. Quite a few of the performances with my music were produced in Russia and in Europe.
I also write vocal arrangements of the world music for my a capella quartet Rusalki, where I am also a singer. (www.rusalkiquartet.nl)

I have a lot of concerts with my vocal quartet RUSALKI.
The next performances are at the OEROL Festival in the Nederlands.
Very often music is a part of theatre shows I am in, so there I can also sing to my heart's content.
Currently there are two productions on the go: "The Birth of a poet. Gypsies" - about the youth of a great Russian poet Alexands Pushkin and his dramatic poem "The Gypsies"; and "Will's Will" - about the last days of William Shakespeare and about his testament, in which a humanity was not mentioned, but of which it benefited the most. For both plays I wrote music and vocal arrangements. I am happy that I can "marry" my two great passions - music and theatre.
I have no real musical idols.
I am equally happy to listen to Freddie Mercury and a village violinist - as long as music is passionate, sparkling, skillfull and inspiring.
I co-write with great poets like W. Shakespeare, W. Blake, F. Villon, A. Pushkin - they give me inspiration for the music.
And the world music, which I love and I am trying to be part of, is the reachest sourse of ideas.
I have my guitar and a small virtual home studio.
