Last week, I released a song, BEAUTIFUL SOUL, dedicated to our personal heroes. In my life it is someone who continues to make a big difference, paints with colors in the dark and takes a flight despite the storm. She is a beautiful soul who has infused laughter and joy into me, sewn the light, nurtured confidence and love for life in me - my beloved mother. Women all over the world make a huge difference - they journey through this life with faith, sharing love in the face of difficulties, spreading beautiful and strong energy around them.

An extraordinary performance takes place every Sunday at Dulwich Picture Gallery till Jan 24, 2019. It's a profound work choreographed by Dane Hurst for which I wrote a fifteen minute Music Composition titled "Anima." The subject that boggles the mind is described as Art of Violence.

No road taken and moment lived should be overlooked for its greatness, its enormous potency, its capability to be your teacher.
My team is finishing the artistic process of mixing our recordings - the many hours, days of preparing, arranging, recording live instruments, programming beats, textures, whimsical layers of sound created by Brendan Davies, my producer who is bizarrely talented musically and an incredible human; sleepless nights crafting, editing, writing strings arrangements, us throwing the colours and shapes of music all around to hear different moods and how they move our hearts, our psyche, our beings! Many exhilarating moments, sometimes amusingly extended days - through it all enthusiasm of my producer bursting out of the seams and of course, mine too, feeling flight, feeling alive, running on music juice, connection with fantastic musicians who took part in this album, adrenaline, beauty.... And when it comes to the days of technical details adding a good old English Breakfast tea to it all helped and again more inner strength and more enthusiasm generated out of everything that matters to us and sometimes out of pure nothing. Love for life and being in the now, deep talks, funny talks, and talk of our lives emerging from the cracks and near the edges our creative days --- it's all there in the music, in the record of "Diamonds." Hallelujah, we are nearly finished!!
Hello world! Perhaps disappearing is not such a bad thing! While I was missing in action for you I was searching for the right creative team to create a new EP with! Searching a producer is like taking shots in the dark, there is a sea of creative people out there. How do you find a life partner? It's kind of the same. But through power of connection, kind and caring friends and musicians, band members of mine and also struck of luck I bumped into a pretty talented creative, Brendan Davies, who cares to bring out the essence of me and and my songs and possesses pretty amazing qualities to create new sounds, electronic textures, work with drums and bass and the whole mesh of things we call music. We are cooking up a new record together with the drummer, David Green, guitarist Vilasini Venkatesh, and Vulcan String Quartet. More to come soon! If you want to support the making of this EP you can buy more of my last CDs/digital files of my previous album here and gift them to your friends.
Overwrought by the swirl of life and being afraid that time and admin work is overtaking my creative potential and realisations, I have decided to sit down and improvise my feelings and emotions into Piano Music which I hope will grow into a compilation - "Piano Poetry." Enjoying your free listening.
My band and I started our Listen, Feel & Wonder Tour in September 2015, bringing "White Dandelions" (in German "Pusteblume") album to many cities and small towns in Germany. This particular video was made in October 2015 during our official CD release concert in Zurich, Switzerland. Heartfelt thanks to Natasha Afanasyeva, my dear friend, for making these videos and making amazing slideshows from her own photos.
