Irina Mikhailova sings to us from the heart of her indigenous roots that lay in the rich traditions of Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East. Born and raised in the Republic of Kazakhstan, Irina currently resides in San Francisco, where for the last ten years she has released many solo and collaborative projects, most of which explore vocal technique, traditional instrumentation and digital composition, all while taking in the styles of contemporary folk, modern lounge, dub-ambient, tribal psy-trance, and Arabic groove. Her talents have brought her onto stage with a diversity of world performers, ranging from Glen Velez, Hamza El Din, Huun-Huur-Tu, Cheb i Sabbah, Ali Slimani, to Banco de Gaia, Juno Reactor, Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead), Spearhead and pop sensation Jewel.
Rich of the multi-ethnic sounds that surrounded her childhood, and the depth of her soul, Irina Mikhailova blends her warm and otherworldly vocals with trance-inducing music of an amazing cast of musicians such as Seb Taylor (Kaya Project, UK), Vibrosphere (Sweden), Omnimotion ( Sweden), Toires (France), Star Sounds Orchestra (Germany), Graham Wood (UK), Medicine Drum (USA), Lumin (USA) etc.
Over last few years Irina has collaborated with many different musicians all over the World. Night Flower Compilation is reflection of it. Performers from Egypt, Iran, Israel, USA, UK, France, Germany and Canada brought their unique talent to this interesting international mix.
We hope you enjoy wonderful gifts of " Night Flower" album.
