Marso & Gala (Alexei Manezhin and Gala Kucherenko) is a musical collective from Siberia, that was formed in 2012. Alex was born and raised in the city of Krasnoyarsk, Gala was born in a small taiga village in the north of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Thousands of kilometers of endless taiga, wild rivers on one side and urban authenticity on the other, is what impregnates the music of Marso & Gala.
They met each other in the university in 2002. After 10 of offriendship they started creating together. Their first release was with the British label Offworld Recordings, as part of the compilation ´Different Shoresª with a track called ´Northern Lightsª.
Gala’s lyrics are linked with memories of her life in the north, they reflect to her early impressions, as well as something that touches her now.
