Daria Kulesh has been described by Mike Harding as one of the finest voices and one of the most intriguing and interesting songwriters on the present folk scene. Her debut release Eternal Child was described as phenomenal, her second album Long Lost Home has enjoyed rave reviews and multiple awards, including LCM Album of the Year, and her latest studio release Earthly Delights was named "one of the year's finest albums" by Folk Radio UK. Daria has toured extensively in the UK and Europe, sharing stories and songs that are deeply personal but feel universal and timeless. Every performance is an "emotional, compelling and uplifiting experience", leaving the audiences "completely spellbound". Born in Russia but based in the UK for the last 15 years, she fearlessly explores her heritage and turbulent family history in Ingushetia (North Caucasus) with songs that "aren't just sung, but lived".
Long Lost Home - the story of the Ingush people
Daria Kulesh's Ingush Grandmother and Russian Grandfather fell in love. What could possibly be wrong about that? Yet, centuries of oppression and injustice, conservative traditions and colonial prejudices left their mark, making their union a scandal. Can love win? Can a fractured family be healed across generations? Can a wounded nation find peace? Can songs and stories really make a difference?
Daria's soaring, evocative vocals and vibrant and colourful stories and songs take you on a journey, both historic and personal, through the past in tribute to and celebration of her grandmother and her family and their long-lost homeland of Ingushetia. Deep in the Caucasus Mountains, this is an ancient land of breathtaking beauty and harrowing history, fascinating folklore and age-old traditions. During the Caucasus Wars of the 19th century it was conquered by and absorbed into Russia. In 1944, falsely accused of collaboration with the Nazis, it was subject to brutal deportation under the orders of Stalin and, in 1992, devastated by ethnic conflict. Despite all this darkness, the show is uplifting and inspiring. Long Lost Home is a story for our troubled times, exploring themes of displacement and (in)tolerance, identity and integrity, humanity and strength in the face of adversity, hope against hate; it's "an album for everyone", according to Northern Sky Magazine.
