Irina Kuzminsky

A poet, singer, songwriter and dancer, Irina Kuzminsky (aka Irinushka) is a genuine artist for our time.

Trained as a classical singer, pianist and dancer she has international performance experience in dance, theatre, opera and recitals.

Born in Melbourne, Australia, into a White Russian émigré family, Irina is a graduate of Melbourne (Arts and Music) and has a doctorate from Oxford University. She is a recipient of scholarships to Germany and Oxford where she wrote her thesis on the 'Language of Women' and was elected Junior Research Fellow in Humanities at Wolfson College.

A published poet in the UK, US and Australia (publications include "Dancing with Dark Goddesses" Awen 2009, contributor to "Soul of the Earth" Awen 2011, poems published in Acumen, Poetrix, Esoteric Quarterly,, and others), Irina has recently turned to setting some of her poetry to music in the singer/songwriter tradition of the troubadour poets.

She follows her first CD, "Would That I Could", with "Roads Travelled". In this new release she brings elements of New Age and Celtic folk to her own unique settings of her poems.

Most recently (July 2013) Irina performed songs from "Roads Travelled" at the Seed Festival in the Cotswolds (UK) and her one woman poetry and dance show "Dancing with Dark Goddesses" in Saarlouis (Germany).
