Tuesday Tune Link Up ~ The Musical Alchemy of Elizaveta.

Welcome to Natasha in Oz and welcome to this week's Tuesday Tune, my weekly post where I share my favourite song of the week.

Have you heard Elizaveta's beautiful voice?

Elizaveta Igorevna Khripounova, known as Elizaveta is a Russian-American pianist, singer/songwriter and opera singer.

Born in New York City, Elizaveta spent eight mere months there, before her interpreter parents moved back to Moscow, Russia. It is in Russia where she learned the piano and commenced writing poems and songs at the age of five. As she grew older, her tastes spanned everything from Russian composers, Bach & Vivaldi to Nina Simone, Queen and DJ Shadow. She left Russia as a teen for Europeand pursued her music studies at the Prague Academy of Music where she discovered she could sing opera.

I felt like feathers for tonight's show;)

Elizaveta considers herself a musical alchemist.

“Alchemy and music are similar in nature,” she explains. “You throw seemingly disparate elements in a pot. If you do it correctly, they’re transmuted and something else takes form. I take opera, multiple voices, electronic beats, piano hooks, add a pop melody and create a song. Shake it all well, make sure it’s emotional and really means something, and you get something special”.

That would be why when I listen to her I also hear Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Bjork, Tori Amos and even Lana Del Ray, especially in the song 'Hero' from her album Beatrix Runs. Her style is modern opera-meets-pop and her music has been described as “…a perfectly sweet combination of pop, electronic, and opera that features her dreamy vocals and 19th-meets-21st century mentality” (Nylon)

I particularly love her song 'Dreamer' and have chosen it as this week's Tuesday Tune because I also love the video for it as well. 

I hope you enjoy listening to Elizaveta as well!

Say G'Day Saturday Linky Party (83) - Link up your recipes, crafts, tutorials, DIY, tips & tricks!

G'Day from Oz and welcome to this week's Say G'day Saturday Linky Party! I hope you are enjoying a relaxing and happy weekend and if you celebrate Easter I hope you are enjoying one (or two!) hot cross buns! I appreciate you taking time to join in with this weekly exchange of ideas, vision, creativity and knowledge.

I've just returned from a relaxing beach break and am trying to forget that the school holidays finish in only a couple of days! I love having the kids at home with me and always feel sad when I know that they are going back to school for another term.

We had some fun times during the Autumn break. Here's a glimpse of what we got up to!

Blogging from the Beach & Say G'day Party Reminder

G'day from Mooloolaba beach! I'm having the best time at the beach but as the saying goes all good things must come to an end and sadly we head home today. It will be sad to say good bye to this!

I do miss my bed, though, and I'm really looking forward to spending Easter with my extended family on Sunday. 

I also need to get ready for this weekend's Say G'day Saturday Linky Party!

Don't forget that you can link up a post about your favourite recipe, craft, idea, tutorial, Instagram pics, DIY projects or even your own linky parties. All posts are welcome, so long as they are family friendly!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow.

Best wishes,

Natasha In Oz
