Umka

Born:

The True Story Of My Life Written By Myself In Bad English I was born as Anna Gerasimova in Moscow, 19 April 1961, a week after Gagarin's flight; the heroes of my childhood were Gagarin, Fidel Castro, The Three Musketeers and Winnie the Pooh. I loved books and dreamed to become a great writer. I loved singing, too, and attended a children's choir. Playing piano was not my strongest point; several years of training caused a severe allergy for classical music. At the age of 13 I got my first guitar, the cheapest acoustic monster made in USSR, and taught myself some chords. To be honest, my skill hasn't improved a lot since then

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
