Spotlight On: Daria Kulesh

Here at Spot On one of our main jobs is to bring fantastic artists to Lancashire. Well, that’s been scuppered at the moment! But we’re not an easy bunch to keep down, so we thought, that while we can’t support artists in our usual way, or bring you fantastic shows we’d switch our spotlights from the stage to the web as it were.

This week we are putting the spotlight on one of our Spring 2020 artists who should have been coming to Lancashire with her show ‘Long Lost Home.’ You might not be able to hear Daria Kulesh’s beautiful voice in one of our fantastic venues, but you can watch her online! Here she tells us more about who she is and what she’s up to now…

1. Who are you and where are you based?
Daria Kulesh, based in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire. Originally from Moscow, Russia.

2. What do you normally do?
Performing artist – folk singer and songwriter with Russian and Ingush (North Caucasus) roots.

“Bold, exotic, impressive” (fRoots) “Haunting and enigmatic” (The Times) “One of the most beautiful songs I’ve heard in years” (Mike Harding)

3. What are you doing at the moment? 
Currently discovering live streaming, hope you enjoy this 30-minute sample:

4. Where can people find you?
Like most artists, I’ve lost all my live touring work for the foreseeable future so anyone supporting my work in any way they can means the world to me.

5. Your top tip for staying creative/inspired/busy while at home? 
Having a 6-month-old baby is guaranteed to keep one pretty busy! Sadly, it doesn’t leave a lot of room for quiet contemplation and peaceful creativity, but one certainly needs to be a round-the-clock entertainer.
