Maria Marachowska, the daughter of a Russian colonel and a philologist for Russian literature, born in Omsk/Siberia on Monday, July 21st 1980, spent her early childhood in Estergom/ Hungary and in 1986 she moved with her family to the historic metropolis Kaliningrad/Königsberg, where she attended the E.T.A. Hoffmann music school for highly gifted children/ instrument: piano.
In 1998, she returned to her native city Omsk/ Siberia for a period of 2 years to complete her studies of fine arts. Since 2000 she has been living in Germany, since 2004 in Berlin, where she has also newly discovered music for herself in addition to her work as a fine artist and has created her personal, innovative music style of "Siberian Blues".
In numerous exhibitions and different contexts, a.o. in Berlin, Jena and Saalfeld, she has presented her varied fine and graphic art works, various paintings are contained in private collections in Germany, Europe and Russia. She is particularly interested in the development of cross-genre art events/ whole art works with multimedia projections of her paintings combined with her music, sound and light effects and staged exhibition spaces.
With her "Siberian Blues", Maria Marachowska has created an entirely new music style. Far beyond Russian Disco, Balkan Beats and multicultural folklore, its strength lies precisely in the slowness. 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, 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.
