Anya Malkiel Anya Malkiel

Anya Malkiel grew up in the former Soviet Union. During her University years in St. Petersburg, she and her sister were well known on the rock scene, singing with local bands Vozrozdenie and Aelita.

But Anya's first visit to a jazz club changed her singing career forever: she learned jazz standards by listening to western records and by collaborating with Russian musicians. Then she started singing jazz standards with the band Nevskaya Vosmyorka at Kvadrat jazz club and never looked back. She sang with such great musicians as Vladislav Pankevich, Eduard Moskalyov, Grigoryi Lakshin and others.

When Anya emigrated to the US in 1990, she sang with Natural Gas Jazz Band and Chicago Six in festivals in Reno, San Francisco, San Diego and Mountain View.

She took a break to raise her daughter, and has returned to her passion in recent years. Anya attended the Stanford Jazz Vocal Workshop and studied with such legendary educators as Roger Letson, Madeline Eastman and Kitty Margolis.

Anya has been singing in Sumika (Los Altos), Bella Luna (Palo Alto), Studio Pink House (Saratoga), La Boheme (Burlingame), Meridian Gallery (San Francisco) and private concerts.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
