 ‘Galina  is simply the best electric violinist I have ever worked with in the last 15 years – she adds a brilliance to every project she is involved in. What a privilege to work with such a warm, generous and truly exceptional artist. I can’t recommend her highly enough. She will make your event’. Carol Thorns, Red Cello Productions
