Galya Bisengalieva’s music is dark and atmospheric. The Kazakh-British violinist and composer mixes ambient, folk, classic and electronic music, getting unique results that convey strong feelings. She bets on a resounding live performance, with a very remarkable set design. In 2020, she released her first album, Aralkum.
Aralkum is the name given to the dry surface of the Aral Sea. It almost disappeared in just a few decades due to human action. This ecological disaster has caused for the Aral Sea’s population worse living conditions than those of the desert itself.
Galya Bisengalieva is an internationally recognized artist. She has performed at venues such as the Paris Philharmonic, or the Royal Festival Hall, in London. Furthermore, she has collaborated with musicians such as Laurie Spiegel, Hildur Guinadottir or Thom Yorke.
