"Bird Language'' is a mesmerizing and genre-bending show where Baltic folklore, jazz and pop styles are blended into one intriguing performance. Presented with a unique theatrical flavor, Simona's original compositions bring Lithuanian ethnic zither (kanklės) to jazz; and fascinate the audience with breathtaking vocals, mimicked bird sounds, ethereal sound of zither and virtuosic jazz improvisations by her bandmates; Caili O’Doherty on piano, M. Ch. on drums and Maksim Perepelica on upright bass. The show will also feature a local New York model star and dancer Sasha M. Krumholz Lynn. Using nature as the main source of inspiration, Simona's show is a perfect act for not only entertainment but also for the highest quality of musical and aesthetic experience.
"Smirnova’s music has a timeless aspect while able to reference a wide
range of modes of expression; and her own voice, too, has that otherworldly quality."
