Zaritza is a singer, pianist and songwriter whose electro-pop/rock music combines modern digital soundscapes with dramatic elements from her Russian classical roots.
Zaritza's music reflects her cultural journey from the classical traditions and austere rural life in her native Russia to the creative abundance and technical innovation of her adopted American homeland. Raised in a Ural Mountains village, Zaritza was a government-sponsored classical pianist throughout her youth. She began writing pop/rock songs as a teenager, recording and performing them while attending university in Russia.
Tracing the footsteps of her idol, the great Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff, Zaritza emigrated to New York to focus on her original music. She has performed in such diverse settings as the Newport International Film Festival, the Rainbow Room and as opening act for a concert by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. She recently completed recording her debut American album, and to celebrate its release, she's excited to be giving a special early evening concert on Sunday, September 24th 2017 at New York's premiere world music venue, DROM in the East Village.
