Marianna started as a Russian duet in 2001 consisting of two sisters; Maria Okunev (voice/piano/guitar) and Anna Okunev (violin). In 2009 Blake Keep (guitar) and Richard Savery (Clarinets/Saxophone) joined the ensemble.
The ensemble draws on the multi talents of its members, which between them share backgrounds in opera, jazz, folk and contemporary music. Since its conception the ensemble’s original compositions and arrangements of folk and classical repertoire have been winners of several awards. Marianna will perform a recital for “Sunday Live” show – ABC classic fm on March 14th. Also this year “Marianna” will be featured in the up-coming Peter Butt “I-Spry” film about ASIO and KGB in the 1950s-60s Australia for ABC television.
