The enigmatic singer Nick Celino joins GéNIA at her concert at The Other Palace

Nick Celino

Fantastic singer Nick Celino joined GéNIA at her show “Babylon’ at The Other Palace on the 9th of May to sing the song which she co-wrote with Jeff Chegwin. Nick has recently appeared on Russia’s biggest TV show ‘Evening Urgant’ singing to 60 million viewers, as well as on Britain’s Got Talent four years ago.

Nick has just signed to New Heights Entertainment in Hollywood (the team behind Lady Gaga’s hitmaker producer & songwriter RedOne) and his new single is due for release this summer, mixed by Ariana Grande’s producer.

It was GéNIA’s debut as a song writer and she is now working on a number of songs to be released later in the year.

GéNIA is delighted to Premiere Five New Pieces at Her Next Show in London on the 9 May 2019

It has only been 6 weeks since GéNIA’s last show in London, but to surprise her fans and offer them something new to listen to, GéNIA has prepared five new compositions, which has never been heard or released before.

There also will be a surprise for her audience, revealed closer to the show, so stay in tune to find out more!

GéNIA has been nominated for the Future Classic Women Awards by the Women’s Radio Station

Recently GéNIA has been nominated for & became a finalist in the Future Classic Women Awards by Women’s Radio Station.  It happened as she gave an extensive interview to the wonderful charismatic host, who is also a concert pianist and a voting member of the Recording Academy/Grammy’s, Stefania Passamonte.  

They talked  about many things: GéNIA’s new album Babylon, her family history, the current education system, politics (yes, this was also in the conversation!)  and some of the funny moments in GéNIA’scareer.

There are many other amazing women musicians who have been nominated, and, seriously speaking, we truly believe that it is almost impossible to compare original artists, as every talent is unique and this is what makes us all special.

However, if you would like to hear the show and also help GéNIA to win, please listen and share  the recording of the interview from the Sound Cloud below, as the winner will be determined by the amount of plays each interview has received. 

You can also nominate your winner by writing to Stefania Passamonte, Women’s Radio Station, 16 Jermyn Street, St James, London, SW1Y 6ST or tweet your nomination to https://twitter.com/@womensradiostn.

Your support is invaluable to GéNIA. Thank you!

GéNIA to take part in ‘Play Piano for the Planet’ 16 April

ClimateKeys is a global initiative with a no-fly policy and has so far triggered over 60 events in 13 countries in which musicians and climate change experts collaborate to lead discussion on action on climate change. ClimateKeys is pleased to create PIANO FOR THE PLANET to support Extinction Rebellion’s mass peaceful civil action commencing on 15th April.

ABOUT THE CLIMATE CRISIS
“Climate change is now reaching the end-game… The issue is the very survival of our civilisation.” Prof Hans Joachim Schellnhuber.

“The facts about our ecological crisis are incontrovertible. We must take action” say notable leaders including previous Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/26/facts-about-our-ecological-crisis-are-incontrovertible-we-must-take-action

2019 is arguably our last chance to drive policy and culture change so as to achieve the ambitious targets set out in the UN’s IPCC 2018 report which describes the enormous harm that anything above a 1.5°C rise in global temperature would cause. It told us that limiting to 1.5°C may still be possible yet requires “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society”.

The problem though: we’re not on track. Carbon emissions haven’t stopped rising and temperatures are heading towards 3°C. If we continue on our current course, future changes in climate could be dramatically abrupt and irreversible, seeing mass migrations, crop failures and unprecedented disasters. This is already putting pressures on the ecology, with 200 species going extinct every day due to habitat loss as well as change in climate. A 2018 study of British mammals found that 1 in 5 could be extinct within a decade.

It’s time to increase ways to shift the global narrative and generate the necessary political will.

GéNIA, composer and pianist

‘When I was invited to take part in this event I was both, delighted and honoured. My reasons are “Artists these days have far more powerful voices than many politicians and therefore we can make a real difference! The planet needs us more than ever to save it! I personally thank it every day for having all us here, giving us ‘home’ in a real sense and cannot wait to connect with my audience on this special day!” ❤️

GéNIA will be playing her compositions from her new album ‘Babylon’ , especially as the ethos of her new album is so closely aligned with the cause of this event.

New Show is Announced! GéNIA: Babylon

The tickets will go on sale for general public on the 1st April 2019 here

Described by The Times as ‘an outstanding musician’, the Russian born composer and a concert pianist GéNIA has had to announce another show as a result of her sold out performance of ‘Babylon’ earlier this year. The show is celebrating the launch of GéNIA’s new album ‘Babylon’, which is released on the 29 March as a musical reference to the historical period during which the glowing Babylon region progressed to the most advanced level, only to be destroyed by its own residents, those who wish to listen to the album can use the Youtube to Mp3 to download the songs.

By drawing attention to the past, GéNIA hopes that her audience will become more aware of the parallels to events which our society is going through today, in order to prevent the decline of its current highly advanced state.

Two of the pieces from the album enjoyed placements in the critically acclaimed BBC America TV Series ‘Killing Eve’ and the popular British TV Series ‘Cold Feet’.

Acknowledging her cultural inheritance, GéNIA would also like to include in the concert some of the popular classical works which influenced her as a composer, as she strongly believes that beautiful music is always currant, and there is no need to separate classical and contemporary genres for her audience.

An enigma in the music world, GéNIA loves to blur the boundaries between classical and popular music. Her music has been broadcast on Classic FM, BBC Radio 2, 3, 4, BBC Radio London 94.9 and BBC Proms, with London performances at the Wigmore Hall, Barbican, Southbank Centre, Olympia, Kings Place, St John’s Smith Square and St Martin-in-the-Fields, to name just a few.

Date: 9 May 2019/ Time 8:00pm Address: The Other Palace, 12 Palace Street, London, SW1E 5JA Tickets: £20.00 booked via the venue
