Irina's music with passion 
Singing is my life, and I do it all the time... However, there's something else that I enjoy doing... Here you will find all the music updates, photos made in collaboration with local photographers, and other news.


irina's - live music - at FArmers markets 2018!

I am officially in the list of performers at Californian Farmers' Markets for the upcoming year - 2018. The number of markets varies from local Oakridge, San Jose to Fort Mason in San Fransicsco. I am very excited about it, since I have already done it this year, and enjoyed the home-like hospitality of farmers and diversity of passers-by. Every market nourishes me as a musician with its own vibe and inspires to go on! 

P.S.: it's not only the vibe, but also delicious fresh local produce:))

I represented my original song "Fall" there, and with your help I am now on the Radio Shanson Plus, and my song Fall will be live there for 3 months! Thanks to everyone! Thanks for your Likes and Votes!


Stevens creek PArk russian event

This was a great event held at Stevens Creek Park a few times a year. There were about 200 people, who came to meet each other, eat some Russian style barbeque and enjoy live music. I was a guest performer, and was pretty lucky to meet some great musicians such as this saxophonist with a great voice - Viktor Rivkin. I think we made a nice improvisation together on the song "Dance Me To The End Of Love" by Leonard Cohen.

My daughter Euphenia just turned 2 years old on 05/05/2017

My song "a fool" is in a game now!

"Castle Breakout" is an iPhone/Android application, and is a room escape game. The game is in a Medieval style, and while roaming among the castle walls, looking for the exit, and solving many puzzles, you will enjoy a lovely Medieval instrumental music and of course, my song - A Fool. I wrote it in 2016 and recorded with the help of Cloudburst records. I tried to recreate a Medieval atmosphere by bringing some characters of that time and the music.

Listen to the song on iTunes

Here's one of the reviews:

"Sounds like something I'd hear while a cinematic section of GOT [Game of Thrones] is playing"
