Alina Engibaryan is a contemplative singer, keyboardist and composer whose musical roots go back to her childhood in Russia.

 

Her grandfather, Nikolay Goncharov, was a master jazz drummer in an era when jazz was perceived as “the devil’s music.”

WBGO celebrates four decades of jazz and its magnificent diversity on one night, Friday, January 11th, at SOB’s during Winter Jazzfest in New York City.
