Who is Adriana Babin?

Have you wondered how mermaids sound when they start singing? Until a few months ago, I though that is a myth but then I found Adriana. A real life mermaid with a magical panflute and a passion for music. I have listened to excerpts from her concerts and I had goosebumps every single time!

Blogulcăutat: Who is Adriana? Describe yourself in a few words. 

Adriana Babin: Adriana is a girl from a small but very culturally rich country – Moldova who plays panflute and absolutely adores life.

Blogulcăutat: How did you first get into music? 

Adriana Babin: I was about eight years old when I saw a school band from the musical school in my city and I fell in love immediately. I then begged my parents to take me to that musical school so I could study music. However, I’m quite sure music has been in my life since I was four years old because I remember during kindergarten I was singing improvised songs for other kids to keep them entertained.

Blogulcăutat: How do you differ from most other artists?

Adriana Babin: Firstly I differ because of my instrument. Panflute is an amazing instrument but unfortunately not that popular in Europe so when I give concerts abroad everyone is amazed by how panflute sounds and looks like. Secondly is my style, I always try to adopt a very romantic and classic approach so when the duet Adriana and the panflute come to the stage it’s a whole show.

Blogulcăutat:  What would you say is your greatest strength as an artist?

Adriana Babin: My greatest strength is I can feel things differently than others do. Music has always been an emotional complex to the musicians, we are different thinkers.

Blogulcăutat: Who has been your most influential teacher or mentor?

Adriana Babin: In my whole life of playing panflute which is about 13 years I had 3 teachers. They all had a big influence on me but the most influential is my teacher from Moldova with whom I studied in Chișinău and at the University in Iași. Me and Negura Ion (my teacher and mentor from Moldova) have more than a student-teacher relationship, we’re family because of all the things we’ve been through.

Blogulcăutat: Who would you most like to collaborate with artistically?

Adriana Babin: I would love to collaborate with Dudamel, the conductor. I feel like he’s such a nice person and we’d make a big show together.

Blogulcăutat: Who is your favourite musician?

Adriana Babin: I can’t name only one person because there are a lot of musicians in this world from whom I’m learning different things but two in the top are Mstislav Rostropovich and Anton Rubistein. I also like Khatia Buniatishvili and Yuja Wang for their elegance and way of presenting themselves, I like Gautier Capuçon, Misha Maiskiy and many others.

Blogulcăutat: What is your proudest accomplishment as a musician?

Adriana Babin: I have many achievements I’m proud of, but spiritually I feel like the most important one was in Romania, in Bucharest at the Romanian Athenaeum when I had my own recital that was broadcasted at “Radio Romania Muzical”.

Blogulcăutat:  Where do you see your musical career in 10 years?

Adriana Babin: I think it will be similar to now but with more music. I mean more concerts, huge stages and hundreds of people in the audience.

Blogulcăutat: Any words for our readers?

Adriana Babin: Music is a whole world, music is an emotion, a feeling, a disappointment, a game or even a book. Just take a look at the place where you are now and notice the noise in the background. I’m sure it’s a song, and now imagine the same place without the music. Never think too much when talking about music, just make it louder and enjoy life. 🙂

Blogulcăutat: One last question, which social media platforms do you use?

Adriana Babin: You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and my website.
