Simona Smirnova

Simona Smirnova is a combination of Eastern European exotic, ethnic and modern in one place. She is a Lithuanian born jazz vocalist, composer and kanklės player based in New York City. Her performance is known for its unique theatrical flavor, genre-bending, and virtuosic vocal improvisation. Simona’s solo act ‘Bird Language’ blends bird sounds and uncanny vocal techniques into one intriguing performance. The act explores an eclectic mix of ethnic scales, Lithuanian ethnic zither sounds, and improvisation.
