With her "Siberian Blues" Maria Marachowska has created an entirely new music style. Its strength lies precisely in the alternation between two opposite and equally stirring ways of expression: on the one hand the deliberate slowness that leaves room to the tones and allows them to linger on in the silent pauses, and on the other hand the always increasing ecstatic speed amounting to a trance-like, almost shamanic outburst. In her music and the soft timbre of her deep singing voice, this blue haze, that is Blues, takes on the shape of figures and moods, forms poetic words either from her own pen or inspired by world literature, and seems almost meditative. Whoever gets into this unique experience of "Siberian Blues" submerges far under the surface and comes across long lost feelings and emotions. This particular energy is transferred to the listener and has a cathartic effect.
The melody speaks, we believe to hear a continuous echo to her singing voice on her guitar, she is capable of a playing technique that in a wondrous way conveys the acoustic illusion of hearing several instruments out of one. In the general effect, there is no need of any other instrument but this single guitar, to produce the drive of a band. It is as if the tones were falling from a distant star, as William S.Burroughs described the divine power of music in his “Cities of the Red Night“.
Maria Marachowska, born on July 21st, 1980 in Omsk/ Siberia (Russia), spent her early childhood in Estergom/ Hungary (1980-1985) and in 1985 she moved with her family to the historic metropolis Kaliningrad/Königsberg (1985-1998), where she attended the E.T.A. Hoffmann music school for highly gifted children/ instrument: piano/1989-1993. In 1998, she returned to her native city Omsk/ Siberia (1998-2000) for a period of 2 years to complete her studies of fine arts.
