English jazz singer Nette Robinson will lead a programme of imaginative and sensitive arrangements of traditional folk and popular songs from Russia. Nette will pair each Russian piece with a song from the British Isles or America and talk about the connections and the contrasts between them in terms of theme, narrative and atmosphere.

She began studying the Russian language several years ago and over the past few years has been exposing UK audiences to beautiful Russian songs by performing them in her concerts.
