"Ganna Gryniva - ukrainian jazz singer"

A portrait by Holger Zimmer: “Ganna Gryniva comes from a small village near Kyiv, Ukraine. When she came to Berlin in 2013, it was a shock – and a challenge. Her debut album “Dykyi Lys” (“Wild Fox”) received great praise from the music press. Lately, she has been extremely active – as you can imagine – in concerts and charity events, and recently released the new album “Home” with her quintet GANNA.”
