A graduate of the composer’s faculty of the Conservatory then did not even think about the career of the singer. Her first concert was a pure coincidence, and the lyrics of the songs were poems by D. Joyce – there were none of their own. Now Nina has a bass player, drummer and keyboard player, as well as well-deserved popularity both in Russia and abroad. Continue reading
