Anastassiya Petrova (Kazakhstan) - piano
Angela Varo (Spain) - violin
Soso Gelovani (Republic of Georgia)- double bass
Pritesh Walia (India) - guitar
In Anastassiya's words: "It hasn't been easy and I want to thank everyone who has been with me through this journey. My mom was an extraordinary violinist. We never got a chance to record together, only performed occasionally, but we did have some tracks that we loved and kept listening to throughout the years. Please join me in celebration of my mom's life and music that connects all of us together through time."
