“Sisters Geniush” are Yulia and Nadya, jazz singers and radio show hosts on Russian-speaking radio station RUSA Radio.
Whether it be performing jazz or interviewing guests on their radio shows, Yulia and Nadya exude a visible and emotional aura filled with blessing for anyone fortunate enough to be in their company. People come first in their work and they love and take pride in their interpersonal interviews and the passing to their audience of life stories, new inspirations and original ideas. Fate has put them together and trusted them to be, in the midst of current events, able to unite Russian people, not just by nationality, but by feelings and perception of the surrounding world. Both have voices that contain a pleasant, distinct and original sound. The audience cannot confuse them with anyone else and their duets whether in the studio or during a live performance are spellbinding. Sisters Geniush have turned their passions into their professions. Their lives are like a kaleidoscope. Their artistic endeavors are multifaceted and seemingly by design for from their early childhood, they always sang and played piano together and staged theatrical performances and concerts attended by their entire neighborhood. As they grew, the importance and scale of their performances and competitions grew with them. At age 11, Yulia played with the symphonic orchestra and Nadya participated in the Yalta-Moscow-Transit competition. Yulia was the communicative one, always took the lead, but never forgot to bring Nadya with her. Early on, they both stood out, distinguished with great imagination, broad education and depth of field. Both beautiful girls grew up refined and creatively passionate in a family of music conductors and professors from a top, national music-education institution. Normally, when the two little girls came to their parents’ workplace at University, other educators would always come up to them with curious questions, asking about life in their creative family. Without shyness, they talked about themselves, about their beloved and reliable father, whose knees they could always climb on to reach his ear to talk about the world around them. Their joyful and kind mom filled their home with her musical soul, always singing from a catalog of personal and authentic lullabies. And, while this cultured environment created an aura of unattainability, they found nothing special or purposeful about it. Inside they were always open and receptive with a warm soul and great comprehension of people.
Perhaps, the Geniush sister’s upbringing is why their RUSA Radio program, “Talk About Me”, has such a warm atmosphere with many unexpected revelations. They create a comfortable environment for their guests, inviting openness of discussion without the need to hide joy or hardship. In the end, their program’s atmosphere invites discoveries and brings happiness and joy. The show aims to introduce interesting and talented artists as well as their teachers and mentors. Such guests include incredible doctors, medical professionals, authors and composers. The audience learns about their lives, examining their history and the obstacles and difficult decisions they made along the way. This kind of interaction evokes strong emotions in both listener and guest and allows them to share a common experience, which is, indeed, the most important element of human interaction. One can tell The Sisters’ Geniush radio programs have soul. They can feel the love in the atmosphere of the studio, from the microphone to the soundboard, and can feel the fun and pleasure from talking with guests. Their devout audience knows to listen intently and trusts the radio hosts and, in so doing, sometimes finds answers and to life’s questions. With regards to their professionalism, the proper language, rich and clear conversation, unique application, meaning, and precision of their words allow their guests to be themselves. A refined culture of language comforts the audience and helps them to listen and more importantly, to remember. Absent of clichés, the audience knows if the hosts say the words “beautiful” or “amazing” about a certain idea or thought, it is truly so. Society seems to be missing a uniting idea for good. Discord of ideas leads to separation between people, causes uncertainty and lack of confidence in one’s actions, and leads to depression. This feeling of disharmony makes one hunger for social interaction, not just with anyone, but with an intelligent person, an advisor who can listen, understand, and help figure out one’s thoughts and feelings. Yulia and Nadya truly accomplish this with their earnest and intelligent radio show. The show helps to welcome the disconnected back into society. Their soothing interviews help find answers to many questions by simply laying open a story of success, a creative search, call to life or obstacle-ridden path of a fulfilled, thoughtful person. One radio critic states: “Their programs have various depths to them, and each listener finds many answers to his or her own life questions: all of the stories of the show guests are open, and are perceived on both daily surface life and deep philosophical levels. This is what attracts a wide audience to the radio program.” Another reviewer of their show says: “Whether I am driving in a car, spinning the pedals on a bicycle, or running around in the kitchen, I listen to the program and catch myself thinking that for the longest time I have been wanting to realize and implement some of the ideas that I have been hearing. They encourage me and call me to action! It is a very inspiring and motivating program!” Yet another accolade: “All the themes discussed in the program linger in the mind for a long time afterwards, float in the sub consciousness. Sometimes, towards the end of the show, I conclude that I should have known ‘it,’ this is so important to me! I find myself coming back to their discussions over and over again, and cannot wait for next Saturday!” When not doing their radio programs (they also have a second radio show on RUSA Radio called “Radio Bridge Music Saloon”), Sisters Geniush can be found performing their favorite genre, jazz, in New York City.
