Inspired by intensely emotional acting training at NYU and The Moscow Art Theatre, Kalko combines a sensitivity to the longings of the human soul with the concise and clever structure of pop/rock songs. Born in Belarus, Kalko is particularly fond of her parents’ bootleg Beatles collection and enjoys learning about Russian avant-garde and taking photos.
