Zara is known for her harmonious blend of western and eastern cultures. The St. Petersburg born artist began her career at the age of 12 when she recorded and released her first solo album, “The Heart of Juliette”. Her repertoire includes songs in English, French and Spanish among other languages, allowing her powerful performances to extend far beyond the borders of Russia. She has performed in several artistic cities including Rome and Paris. Moreover, she has worked with musical legends such as Mireille Mathieu and Andrea Bocelli.

“Singing Arms”, a group of gestural singers with hearing impairment from St. Petersburg, will also take part in Zara’s concert. The young group of performers had performed previously at the UNESCO headquarters, at Zara’s solo concert at the Grand Kremlin Palace, and on the stage of “Helikon Opera” as part of the “You are Unique ” social program.
