Childhood and the family of Tina Kuznetsova
Tina was born in Kazan. Her dad is a mathematician, philosopher, physicist, and her mother is a piano teacher. Mom from childhood was engaged in music with her daughter and put her at the instrument for the first time in four years. A girl at the age of five, impressed by church chants, was already picking up harmonious and strict chords.
As Tina herself says, most likely she got such a penchant for improvisation from her grandfather, who was an engineer-inventor, knew seven languages, worked as a technical translator, and was a self-taught musician.
At the age of six, the girl entered a music school, played the piano, and in addition, she studied the second instrument, the violin, for five years.
At the age of fifteen, she became a student at the Kazan College of Music and studied piano. Kuznetsova was considered very promising.
Career of the singer Tina Kuznetsova
Kuznetsova organized her group, and they became participants in the festival "Jazz in the Hermitage Garden". Tina performed jazz standards, her performances have always been distinguished by improvisations. At this festival, she received the Grand Prix and won the title “Young Hope of Jazz”.

Kuznetsova always dreamed of her own project. He appeared with her in 2006, received the name "Zventa-Sventana" and was dedicated to authentic Russian folklore. This project was made possible thanks to cooperation with Yuri Usachev. In the project, Tina sang along with Alena Romanova. Soloists searched for many songs on their own during ethnographic expeditions around the country. Further, they added a new sound to these songs with the help of modern and ancient musical instruments.
Usachev and Kuznetsova worked together to create a record in the genre of dance club music. The creation of such a record was Tina's long-standing idea. The project started in the spring of 2006 at the “PLAYBOY OLMECA CLUB” - a private party. It should be noted that the start was very successful.
Behind Tina Kuznetsova - performances in the company of famous jazzmen Vladimir Chkasin, Bobby Makferrin, Andrei Kondakov. But, as often happens, not everyone likes the improvisational style, and the singer gained great fame only by becoming a star of a popular television program and gaining a multimillion-dollar audience.
The vocal competition “Voice” launched a new project in the artist’s life - the dance show TINA. In addition, Kuznetsova began to write songs herself. Now she is professional in her field, but every time she goes on stage, she experiences a “jerk”:
“Those who know me very well always see that even if I smile, I still have a panic in my eyes. But of course, after the first note, it lets me go. It `s naturally. I feel responsible, I’m not even worried about how they will perceive the song, but how it will sound. ”

Her voice, in which bright colors and fantastic “Negro” notes were heard, simply tore the space. At the audition, the song “Feeling good” sounded, which gave her the opportunity to go further.
