"Caught, Jeremy Steig Quintet, Tin Palace, New York, NY"

... the surprise entrance of dancer Daina Shukis toward the end of the set. Exuding sensuality, the dynamic Ms. Shukis, finger cymbals aloft, meshed beautifully with the ever-expanding spirals of musical agitation... the talent and sincerity of Ms Shukis - Down Beat, review by Chuck berg

"Romance of the Muse EP"

“Daina Shukis has seen it all. Collaborated with some eccentrically gifted masters of their art. Combined with the accents of her whimsically creative offerings, you get a piece of art that is timeless in its signature. The myriad of colors of Daina’s personality exudes itself in these selections showing that musical conversation can be had with integration's that bring story-telling left to ones imagination of life and all its imagery’s” says Jaijai Jackson of The Jazz Network Worldwide.

“As I have enjoyed playing impressionist pieces with their emphasis on instrumental timbres which create an interplay of shimmering colors evoking symbolic ideas such as a walk in the forest or carriage ride up a steep hill. I hope you are inspired by this collection including free improvisations, to create your own atmospheric mental images allowing your body to absorb the healing vibrations of sound”, says Daina.

The three masters include: Claude Debussy who was a child prodigy who became one of the most important and influential French composers of all time. Francis Jean Marcel Poulenc was a French composer and pianist. His compositions include melodies, solo piano works, chamber music, choral pieces, operas, ballets, and orchestral concert music. Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin, was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist of the Romantic era who wrote primarily for solo piano. He gained and has maintained renown worldwide as a leading musician of his era, whose "poetic genius was based on a professional technique that was without equal in his generation.” (wikipedia)

Shukis revels in the heartwarming feeling that this musical moment in time sits close to her heart where she played synthesizer, was not only impeccable musical exchanges but grew the personal friendships with Jeremy Steig on flute, Eddie Gomez on double bass and Ray Mantilla on percussion.

Daina is excited to share her views of how artists are experimenting with new presentations of genre integrations and seeks radio interviews to share its musical history from her vantage point.
