Never afraid of controversy Galina has become a unique personality of the international guitar world: very few female guitarists have even attempted both classical and flamenco genres, while her most recent recording also included electric guitar. She continues to experiment in crossing of boundaries and musical styles.
Gendai Guitar Foundation of Japan under Masaru Kohno sponsored her first CD "The Legend" This recording was heard on US FM radio for the first time in the network program edition of "Great Women Guitarists" produced by "Classical Guitar Alive" and later on Maltese National Radio with the programme Cantabile.
By 1997 Galina was domiciled in the United Kingdom.
In 2007 and in recognition of her work, she became an Ambassador of the EuroWirral Inernational Guitar Festival - alongside W Mann and J Williams.
Galina’s early influences included the female guitarists Maria Luisa Anido and Ida Presti. She has developed a dramatic guitar technique that owes more to contemporary flamenco and earlier styles rather than current fashions of classical guitar playing.
