#1 Irina Kulikova: Childhood Stardom & Life on the Road

May 17, 2022

Russian guitarist Irina Kulikova and I (Rosie Bennet) discuss her growing up in the USSR as a child star, studying at the Gnessin Academy in Moscow and the Mozarteum in Salzburg and how her move to Europe changed her circumstances. We chatted about Irina's daughter, how she balances being a mother with her busy career, how she overcame challenges of financial hardship and postpartum depression and what her advice is for those going through similar moves and displacements. 

A beautiful conversation with a long time hero of mine! Enjoy xxx
