MARINA LASLO, the Queen of the Russian Romance takes to the stage on Tuesday 20th September on a return visit to the South Bank venue, to perform an inspiring programme of romances and jazz ballads.
The performance coincides with the release for the first time of Marina’s five album back catalogue on iTunes.
Marina grew up through the most troubled years of Russia’s past and, despite descending from a long line of Russian nobility, she was forced to flee the country in order to pursue her musical career.
Her latest offering ‘Night And Day’, produced by multi-million selling Robin Millar (David Gray, Alison Moyet, Sade, Chrissie Hynde) draws together the diverse influences running through Marina’s life.
It also features her own interpretations of timeless tracks by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Andy Williams.
An acclaimed musician with a vast repertoire of classical music, Marina more recently has drawn influences from Cuba and South America to bring an entirely fresh approach to the Romances of her home country.
