Ashia Grzesik: One Cellist's Journey

ashia.jpg

She’s been called Tom Waits with a dash of Edith Piaf – a cellist from Poland who, once she starts singing and strumming, evokes that old-country feel of European gypsy dances.  Ashia Grzesik is a cellist and singer. She performed in Cirque du Soleil's "O" until 2007, when she left the show and Las Vegas to pursue a solo career. 

 

Ashia Grzesik has a rare talent: she plays cello and sings at the same time. We talk with Ashia about her artistic journey, life after Vegas. And we get a solo, in-studio performance.
