Naina Jinga - is a composer and a classically trained pianist who specializes in light classical piano music with a romantic and sensitive touch.
Naina began playing the piano at the age of four, and writing her first compositions at twelve. She has appeared as a piano-soloist with Romanian orchestras, in solo and piano-duos piano recitals. She graduated from the "Gheorghe Dima" Academy of Music in 1991 (B.Mus), where she was later appointed as an Assistant Professor and, in 1998, as an University lecturer. She holds a M.Mus and a Ph.D. in Composition with a “Magna cum Laudae”.
In 2003, Naina Jinga moved to Canada, where she attended graduate studies in Composition at the University of Western Ontario, studying with Dr. Peter Paul Koprowski. She has written extensively in instrumental, vocal, choral, chamber music and orchestral genres with performances in Canada, Romania, Ukraine, France, Norway, Czech Republic, and Australia. She is also the recipient of many international awards and scholarships, among them, the Romanian Composers’ League Prize and the UNESCO award and scholarship.
In more recent years, embracing a new style - the light classical easy-listening style with a soothing and so touching romantic flavour - has won her a loyal fanbase and increased worldwide her popularity.
