Alina Rostotskaya is a singer and composer from Moscow, Russia.
Her music can be described as acoustic fusion of jazz, russian traditional roots music, and classical music. Rostotskaya won, or was among the finalists, at several international jazz competitions: Moscow Jazz Vocalists Competition (Grand Prix), Baku Jazz Competition (Azerbajan, 1st prize), Voicingers (Poland, 2nd prize), Riga Jazz Stage (Latvia, 3rd prize and Special prize), Nõmme Jazz (Estonia, Special prize). In 2013, Alina became a finalist in TV competition, Big Jazz (Russia Culture Channel).
Since late 2000s, Alina works with her own band, Jazzmobile. She experiments with styles, sings both in Russian and English, and experiments with different techniques of instrumental singing (without words,) ranging from jazzy scat to modern classical vocalise.
In April 2016, Alina and Jazzmobile presented in Moscow their debut album “Flow”, which was released on Butman Music label.
“Alina’s voice is only hers. I mean not just her physical voice, bur rather her artistic voice, that of a truly independent creative personality. Rostotskaya is a truly independent artist with an original manner and individual sound – the manner and sound that we recognize as her own when we hear her the first time, and every next time as well”.
