My life in Astana

Hello, my dear friends!!!

I post all my news to my facebook page here

I left that club where I was working as bass guitarist here in Astana, so I start to practice banjo again!!! I need to learn how to play banjo better, how to improvise and more. Now I have better internet connection than I had in Tashkent, so I can watch more lessons and download more information about bluegrass banjo!!! I'm so glad that I can be closer to you and play banjo more again!!!

Janna, your passion for learning and playing banjo amazes me. When someone wants something as much as you seem to want to come to America to learn Bluegrass music, there's almost always a way to accomplish it. Don't give up hope, just be ready to grasp it when the chance comes.
In the meantime, there's much that you can learn online and I'm sure you will take advantage of it.

I wish you the best in your musical journey and in life. I hope to see you perform live here in America some day. I know it's your dream, so make it come true! :)

Janna, I've been following your posts sporadically, because I had an aunt (my mother's sister) who lived in Tashkent. I lost touch with her many years ago, and Aunt Jenny is very likely deceased by now. She had two sons, Felix and Igor, but I have no idea whatever became of them, either. My mother used to send her packages of consumer goods like hair dye, sewing patterns and recorded jazz music, which were unavailable or in short supply in the old USSR, and in return she would send back things that she made, like hand-embroidered scarves and cushion covers. Since my mother had seven sisters and two brothers, they split the cost of the packages that they sent her. At the time, there was a shipping firm in Montreal (my home town) which specialized in sending such packages to the Eastern bloc.
