An expert in Russian musical folklore Irina sings in the authentic Russian "open throat" style characteristic of Russian Folk Singing and has collected material on several expedition throughout Russia.She has particularly excelled in the genre known "Chastushki",or "ditties".Her ebullent personality and dynamic stage presence are exceptionaly well-suited to the playful manner in which these humorous love songs are traditionally performed.

As The Independent of London described one of Irina's resent performaances,"There was no ignoring Irina,She heralled her entry on the scene with sudden high yelp... and there she is...warbling and tap dancing with merry abandon" to the joyful straines of her bayan accompanist.
"Irina has us spellbound".
